I had some problems with the workflow on this one but it turned out just fine!
Here is a new version of the current.[link] which one do you prefer?

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-05-08
okami, celestial brush by ~belbael. From the suggester: "Okami is a game which recieves a lot of fanart, but few people dare to leave the original sumi-e style behind and experiment with the style like ~belbael did in his artwork "okami, celestial brush". Combining great talent for design with the never-ending charm and inspiration almost everyone who played Okami is familiar with, the artist creates a picture that is different from what you usually see, but one that will still fill the hearts of Okami fans with memories of this epic fight!"

Holy....

This is amazing, I'm just blown away by the detail and concept, especially for Okami :iconinloveplz: You really made it great in your style and I never imagined it other than its original style, but wow... No use describing when you can just marvel for years.

I really like this.
But the only thing I dont like much is that the brush is her tail. not an acctual paint brush

I think, I prefer this one. The other version is a bit to overloaded with all the border-patterns. And the red on Amaterasu is a nice focus I miss in the other pic ;)

Very awesome work here.

The colors are well picked, the movement suggested by it is dynamic, the style of being a painting itself suits the original source material well, and the fine details are something else.

Only thing I'm wondering about are the rather out-of-place flowers around the serpent's head. They just seem tacked-on and really confuse me.

Isn't that funny? I saw this pic a while ago and loved it (it was my desktop wallpaper for a while), so it's nice to see it get a DD. It's definitely one of the prettiest and more unique of the enormous number of Okami fanart works on here.
I think the white outlines are just lovely. It's a beautiful piece overall!

You use brush to color?
The color is perfect, i not imagine how it can more beatiful =D
I only think is strange the amaterasu, he appears more a lion than a wolf
If it is to one competition you certainly will win =D
My compliment :XD:
