Sensing the storm was at its' end, the sun Goddess Amaterasu, leaped into the sky, and with a single, graceful stroke of her tail, painted a brilliant arc of colours. The sunlight began streaming through the once dark clouds and reflected the dazzling arc across the land. The villagers knew that as long they had these two treasures of light and beauty, Amaterasu would protect them from the darkness of Orochi."
My entry for the contest at last! (Submitted at almost last second too!) I really wanted to enter, even though there's like a billion better artists than me out there. xD But I loved Amaterasu even though I don't own the game. Her character design is just so beautiful! Plus getting a Wii would be awesome too. 8D
I'm happy to say, I worked with everything I've got on this picture. As you can see, it's alot more detailed than all my other stuff. I even drew everything SINGLE blade of grass. (that REALLY killed me D<) But I like the result of not having photoshop grass for once. xD
I came up with that little intro too yes; you can now witness my horrible writing skills too. I wanted to express my idea more clearly though in case you didn't get the idea. (Amaterasu=Sun goddess? Yeah?) Oh yeah, and sorry up the double upload, I never do that because I hate messing up your inboxes, but I had to get this in on time. xD
Program: Open Canvas 4.5 and Photoshop elements 2 for final touchups.
