Amaterasu, the warrior by SomaKun Amaterasu, the warrior by SomaKun
Okami

"Origin of all that is good and mother to us all"

Hehe well here's one of 2 sculpture pieces as my tribute to a magnificently brilliant game and entry to the Okami DA contest ^_^. I hope I can finish the 2nd sculpture in time. I pulled out some new skills and materials to make this piece. Where to start...

Umm well I used a wax clay called Castilene to make the initial sculpture and I made a mold and casted it in plastic. After putting it together and sanding it down, I gave her a paint job by hand. This was the tricky part since I'm trying to translate a 2-D style into a 3-D piece. The sword is made out of Super Sculpey. The reflector (shield) was made with a round scrap plastic from my casting process, Aves Apoxie, Super Sculpey and hot glue. The base was made with Super Sculpey and the plants were pieces of foam sheet. I wanted to strap a giant celestial brush to the back of Amaterasu but I'm not sure just yet. What do you think =P

I'll post a step by step journal in a bit with photos and explanations to the best of my knowledge. Thanks for looking and I hope you like it! ^_^

Truly breathtaking! The movement in this sculpture is great :) And I really like how the Solar Flare and Tsumagari(sp?) turned out
