Dancing in the Moonlight by xPrincessSakurax Dancing in the Moonlight by xPrincessSakurax
Finally finished!

My entry for the Okami contest. It's inspired by the game only, so these characters are not actually in the game. I hope that's okay for the contest, but I thought it was more fun and creative this way anyway.

Moving on, this is probably the most bright and colorful piece I've ever done. I hope I didn't overdo it. But all in all, I'm very pleased with the results because I put a lot of time and effort into this one.

I'm hardly active on DA anymore, but I was compelled to fav this piece. The composition and colors attracted me first, but what I really like is the technique and detail work! The ripples on the water and the clouds are my favorite parts. Nice job on the line thickness especially.

Where to begin?! I was too awestruck by the awesome details! *A* I gotta say I really love this pic for the color theme! PURPLE :heart: She reminds a tad bit of Maya from PW haha and a little bit of xxxHolic :heart: from the waves and the moon to the details of the outfit and the small fishies and how the wolf just blends in such a tranquil place is so fantastic! :worship:

Thank you so much for your kind words, it is much appreciated :heart:~ Unfortunately, the contest is already over. Considering it was a fan art contest (which I misunderstood somewhere down the line), this definitely didn't make it.

But thank you so much anyway :heart:! It's nice to hear you thought I deserved to win :hug:

Sorry I didn't reply to this a long time! xDD It looks really rude of me, I'm so sorry ^_^''

Aww, you're totally welcome! It was my pleasure to comment on your piece! ^^
Oh, yes, I saw the contest results. I honestly wish they would've looked at some of the other pieces submitted in, many were wonderful and I can't say I was too pleased with the results. But I shouldn't go on rambling with that XD

No problem! :heart: Of course you deserved to win, your picture was wonderful. You obviously put a lot of effort into it, and it came out absolutely breathtaking. ^^

HOLY COW! This looks gorgeous! Your line weights are just . . . . wow. The variation keeps it so lively looking.

And your character design is so GOOD - so many little details - her hairstyle, clothing patterns, gloves and obi (OMG :heart:).

I can't stop looking at this.

Aww, Thank you so much :heart: :hug:! The lineart itself took days to finish.

I'm really glad you like her outfit , it was so fun to draw :3.

Amazing! What kind of color pencils do you use? The pigment in these colors are so bright and...wow. <3 Great job! *favorites and saves picture*

I use Crayola color pencils, but I think it's the smooth paper that make the colors look different. The colors actually look much nicer than they do here, the scanner kinda ruins it a bit.

But thanks again!
