Leap First, Then Think by Ayemae Leap First, Then Think by Ayemae
I used to rarely do fanart for the sake of doing fanart. Usually I do a comic or something, and back in the day I used to do fancharacters as gift art, but yeah. This might be my first fanart-for-the-sake-of-doing-fanart piece. :XD:;

If any of you haven't heard of the game 'Okami', I'm tellin' yah about it now. It's up there with some of my favorites. I wasn't so fond of the Playstation version to be completely honest, but the Wii one is awesome. It's cheap since it's a port, too. Support its awesomeness! =D

(Issun looks kind of like a blob, but eh... what do you guys think?)

Originally completed August 8th, 2008.

EDIT: Took some critique and fixed the sun's rays and also put line art on the cherry blossoms.

Okami belongs to Capcom. Art by me.

Well, as an owner of both games, I can say that I fancy Okamiden more, it's just so adorable :)

I have both as well, but I like Okami a bit more because I felt there was a greater emphasis on exploration (although I understand why they couldn't do that quite as well on the DS). I've actually still yet to beat Okamiden. ^^; Last I played I finished with the electric arc dungeon on Ryoshima Coast. :P

Haha! I haven't beat both yet :)

I felt Okami was a great game, but I just had other games I was more interested in at the time, and I stopped playing it ever since, as for Okamiden, I liked it so much that I actually bought it even tough I had an M3 cartridge and could've downloaded over the net, but in the end I just got the 3DS at the time I bought it, so I didn't pay attention to in the end :(

They're both at home with my Wii, so I can't exactly play them.

You know the games I REALLY miss the most? Hotel Dusk/Last Window and Phoenix Wright.

I think Kyle Hyde might be the coolest, most believable character created in the gaming industry, you could relate to him on so many levels, too bad Cing went broke :'(

It's interesting you say that actually, because most people I know who love Okami, including myself, weren't really wild about throughout their first playthrough. We thought it was brilliant the second time around though! No idea why.

I haven't played Hotel Dusk, but I heard it was good. :nod:

You owe it to yourself to play Hotel Dusk and it's sequel Last Window, I'm not kidding when I say that they are two of the best games I've played in my life period! I'll even go as far as to say I love them more than that the Ace Attorney series!

Sure... It's true though!! How did you even do that?! Is it painted or.... the textures are awesome!!

Aw, thanks. :XD: I did this mainly in Adobe Flash and added the texture in Photoshop (it's one of the default textures, which in hindsight I don't think I should have used since it's probably obvious to people who use it a lot. Nowadays when I don't make textures on my own, I get them from here: [link] ). I got that painterly effect by using multiple layers of low opacity brush strokes in Flash. :nod:

This looks amazing, I really love the action and movement in Amaterasu's pose and how the texture of the drawing really makes it look quite smooth in colour and flowing.

Personally, I think I like the playstation version better just for the fact that I'm not a complete fail at using the glaives in that version xD

But honestly I think you did an awesome job on this. Okami is still one of the best games out there right now x3

:XD: The controls were extremely difficult to learn for me in the Wii version, at first. It probably took me about two hours to get the hang of them, but in my case I found it was worth it. =)

Thank you! I agree, it's a fantastic game. =D

I still can't get them to work for me and I'm already at the Ark of Yamato xD

It truly is a wonderful game! I had no idea all of the extra crap there was in it until I got the Wii version. Now I'm spending all my time trying to find the last upgrades for my brushes and the stray beads :meow:
