Silent Fire by Orioto Silent Fire by Orioto
I'm not used to make animals portraits, and i don't make enough videogame fanarts !

So the Okami contest was the perfect occasion to correct those lacks :)

I used this stock photo ([link]) from :iconforsakewolf: for reference. You can see the comparative in my wip myspace gallery ([link])

Hope you like it !

Little update :
_Some sharpening, texturing and darkening !
_To all people who said me "ho i can't enter the contest now".. lol, i can assure you i'm not sure to win at all^^

I hate being the bearer of bad news, but I would like to inform you that your beautiful piece of art has been stolen and uploaded here at this [link] where it has been edited, cropped, claimed as that person's own, and is being offered as a free wallpaper for anyone to download and use as they please. The person who has stolen it has also removed your copyright information from the image, including your artist signature.

In fact, it appears that there are A LOT of users on that site who have stolen artwork from artists here on DA (my own, included), and I as well as a bunch of others are doing our best to inform all of the artists who we recognize stolen artwork from on that site (if you would like, check out my latest Journal Entry on my DA page for more information).

Anyway, I just thought that you would like to know.

No problem! And if you want to learn how to go about getting your artwork removed from that site, go to this [link] and read all of the required information.

I was linked to your gallery from - Okami has become one of my all time favorites, and this piece does the Sun Goddess MUCH justice. It's beautiful - her fur is radiant, and the glow of the fire is wonderful. I am absolutely fascinated with your art. Definitely a favorite.
