Okami - Celestial Manga Pen by Clockwork7 Okami - Celestial Manga Pen by Clockwork7
This is my submission for the DeviantArt Okami contest that's running at the moment!

Since a lot of people are going with colour, I decided to do something a little different and present some of the ladies from Okami in a black and white manga-style portrait. After all, the powers of Amaterasu's celestial artistic abilities come in many forms - sumi-e and otherwise! The inks were done with a mixture of G-Pen and fineliner, and the tones are all digital.

Haven't played the game yet, but have been dying to for the past year!

Pen and ink, Adobe Photoshop 7.

Note to judges - large resolution version of picture fitting the competition guidelines is available on request.

PS: How cool would an Okami manga be? :D

Very nice piece. I feel for the original story it's slightly stiff but it's great, and you clearly know how to draw in their loose style as i can see from the other images.

Oh wow, really detailed. I've sadly never played Okami, one I never got around to. This makes me think I should give it a go =)
Only point i'd raise is that the lineart can look a little thin in places, and the detail can be a little hard to see, but by no means a problem =)

That would be so cool if someone could make an official manga out of Okami!
If that someone did, then I would be so psyched to read it! ^-^

:nod: good choice. I love the little splash of color u did on the wolf. And the playfulness of the one on it's back. Looks really great, the expressions, the shading and the lines. Wonder job, how u win:D

Reminds me a bit of the cover of Deathnote... but of course, it's better. It's Okami. :D

An Okami manga would be so awesome. I'm hoping someone online will draw one. I've seen a few people who have started, but they never carried through with it. <.<

I just noticed all the fire at the bottom and then realized just how great your style is. (Style as opposed to the drawing in general.) This is a manga masterpiece.

You haven't played Okami yet? You poor, poor soul, it's really a great game that speaks volumes about the "games as art" debate.

Looking at this image, it seems like you have a firm grasp on what the game is about, as though you have already beaten it! You've definitely convinced me.
