Guardians by Mara-Elle Guardians by Mara-Elle
Started as a sketch of a wolf face, then turned into a pair. Then I remembered that poll I had a while back, and decided to finally draw Amaterasu and Oki! :la:

The blue wolf, he appears at the end of the original Okami game.

Stunning piece! The lighting and shadows in this just look gorgeous :heart: You've captured a really tender moment between Ammy and Oki, and I think their swords are a really nice touch, as well! :love:

Ohhh my goodness...
This is GORGEOUS!!
:iconiloveyouplz:

Ohh the texture and sharp contrast shading; everything in this just POPS!
Beautifully done, my friend!!
:clap:

though I personally ship Wolf Link and Ammy, Oki and Ammy is a very believable/sweet in-game Cannon type pairing :aww:

I do love wolf link:heart: But I like in-game pairings moar! :la:
Then again, I haven't drawn wolf-link yet... It'd be a nice excuse..

Oh, no problem! :D
I try to be as specific as I can... I mean... it's hard to initially, 'cause I'm usually gushing/drooling over it if it's good :drool:
BUT OH! The background too... I LOVE how you did the snow...
Also, I noticed Oki is resting his paws over Ammy's arm... a cute little touch
:aww:

Totally understandable :D I like to think there's no shame in liking both! :happybounce:
For different reasons, but yeah! :dummy: lol
Oh, I'd LOVE to see Wolf Link drawn in your style!!

Hehe the swords were the hardest part, because Oki's looks like his is made of wood, and Ammy's is just strange. :XD:
