I've always felt that I couldn't draw fan art about a game unless I actually owned/played that game. I don't know why I felt that way but I did.
I got the okami game a few months ago and have ben playing it off and on. I've been wanting to do Okami fan art for awhile, then I saw the contest, so I thought, "Why not now?"
Here's the first okami FA. I tried my best to reproduce the Sumi-e style with my shapries. I think this one look good. It may not look like brush strokes like I was going for, but I love how it came out.
