I'm totally in love with this amazing artwork! Sakuya's expression along with the outfit and pose all combine perfectly and make her look innocent along with Okami, who is AMAZING. I love her red markings and how the weapon on her back cascades across the sky almost! The whole thing just caught my attention which is what i love about this as well. This almost looks like a painting in the background which really relates to the game because it was based quite heavily on japanese art! I just absolutely love this! keep up the amazing work! I love it!
I don't know how to completely explain what this painting makes me feel. It's wonderful, to say the least. Soft curves on her muzzle and head, blended with elegant shading and presence. It is like you turned her into a half-chibi, yet every fiber of her raw power is still present in how she presents herself. I don't know if that is what you were going for, but that is how I see it. I also love how you used a bit more detail than the game did when it comes to things that are very close to view, and slowly backed off of the detail from the foreground to be more like the game in the background. Very, very well done.
I never understood why Sakuya's butt was showing in the game, but am I the only one who noticed that she had less and less on every time she appeared? I guess it has something to do with her tree dying.
