The Dark Lord by wookieinmashoo The Dark Lord by wookieinmashoo
I'm so happy this is finally done....the background is a bit messy (and distracting :paranoid: ) but it's finished. I was starting to worry I wouldn't get it done in time.
I've been itching to draw this character ever since I played the game, and the contest was a good excuse to draw him. And as for the contest...I simply entered for the sake of entering. Some people were saying that "bragging" rights were all they needed for an award... Isn't just the fact that you entered prize enough? It is for me, so I'm already a winner especially since I actually finished this fox. I wouldn't say no to a Wii though...I adore the Wii and I wish I had one.
I wish I could have gotten a photograph of this instead...fixing and cropping something that had to be scanned in more than once is usually a nightmare, but this time it went surprisingly smooth.
I only had three small printed pictures of the fox as reference, so I'm pretty sure i didn't get everything right about him, but i had to deal with it. I came up with something I guess that was a blend of my own style and the one used in Okami.

The process itself also took a lot of time... drawing it on sketch paper, transferring it to tracing paper, rubbing it on to watercolor paper, re-drawing it, tracing it with pen, masking the lighting areas, then staining it with coffee and watching it dry to prevent irregular stains, then finally painting it...
This is one of the few times I'm actually happy with the completed painting or drawing, even with the many mistakes I made on it.
The trip was fun, but I'm glad it's over. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Watercolor, ink, pen, coffee, and acylics

EDIT:
Resubmitted it...the size was messed up and I feel like waiting for the change file thing to work -_-
Now it's not all huge and stuff.

And (c) Clover...I really wish this was my character

I hate you typos! :shakefish:

This looks great! It must've taken a long time. It paid off though.

I'm appalled that this doesn't have more favorites and comments; you put so much time into it! I can only imagine how tedious the entire process was.

Ninetails was my favorite character from the game, hands down. He was just so awesome! His design is what really got me, though, especially because I'm a sucker for kyuubi. XD; This is a great piece of fanart for him!

I'm shocked that it has that many comments to begin with :lol:
Ninetails was my favorite character too, then close behind are the cat and the snake :3
I just enjoyed the new take on the critter and made a save slot on my memory card just so I can reference it latter to paint/draw him :D
Thanks for the comment and the fave! :hug:

Seriously.
You really use watercolors like professional. Inking looks very good, and whole coloration, amazing! So smooth and pretty, background isn't messy, it's gorgeous and beatiful :love:
Ninetales is my favourite opponent in whole game, and you made him/her (:o?) look just like he/she should be.

Good luck for the contest. :hug:

I've been working really hard on re-learning watercolors and I hope it paid off. The inking, surprisingly, wasn't tedious at all.
He's also my favorite opponent in the game :D
Thanks again :3
