Yatagarasu Colour version by Forrestris Yatagarasu Colour version by Forrestris
Entry for the 2008 Okami competition

The Yatagarasu (Three legged jungle crow) is the symbol of the sun goddess Amaterasu. This is my original design for it.

Kanji on left states 'Yatagarasu'

Yatagarasu is not in the Okami video game and is a folk legend/ belief and is therefore not a trademarked character

Traditional inkstone ink and japanese brushes, combined with background and logo provided in recource pack, coloured with Photoshop

colour version

Wow! I am really impressed !I bought a book about chinese ink drawings in the weekend but it is very hard to paint and making the ink with an inkstone and inkstick is also pretty difficult. where did you learn to make such beautiful drawings? and do you have any tips cause my ink drawings look really bad *shame*
(They are in my scrapbook , take a look if you want)

A friend from Taiwan who took calligraphy courses taught me its all about the way you hold your hand, not to hold the brush as if it were a pencil, but to just use your thumb and forefinger, and hold it straight up, gently, but firmly, as if holding a baby bird, hard enough to not drop it, gentle enough to not squash it, take smooth fluid strokes.
But thats all the advice i can give XD sorry!
