I finished a couple of these today...

That's & most glorious form of Amaterasu, from my favorite video game Okami. 

She kicks ass.

I had to modify her face markings a little bit but not much.  Frankly she's a LOT of work.  All that red on white!  It took several layers of white, like it always does, but also several careful layers of red too since just one layer was streaky.  And then I painted the black outlines by hand with a teeny tiny brush...

But I'm really happy with the way she turned out.  I think it's going to be a popular design.  She's up in my Etsy shop already.

In other news; Greg's 85 year old grandfather passed away after a long illness.  Very sad.

Other things are happening but in the face of art and mortality they pale by comparison, so I'll save it all for Monday.

Beautiful. I always put on the Shiranui "costume" when I play. S/he's so beautiful. T_T I LOVE THAT GAME SO MUCH.

My condolences on Greg's grandfather.

I love Shiranui's markings...straight from Kabiki theater makeup. The art of that game (& the music, & everything) just fills me with love.

So sorry to hear about Greg's Grandfather, our condolances to your family. As in the case of my father, sometimes, after a long illness, it is best in the end that it is done, but still a difficult time. As always, stunningly beautiful masks. Best wishes.

Thank you. Greg was lucky really; it's rare to have grandparents still alive at our age. Both his parents are still here too...I envy him. I miss my Dad every day.

Gorgeous! The bold design is v. elegant and almost tribal.

Condolences to Greg & all of his family :(

The red on white is striking but it has to be REALLy clean lines to look good...which is painstaking.

I am very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences.

The mask is beautiful.

Thank you dear, on both counts. ^_^

I'm sorry for your loss too. I've been keeping you in my thoughts.

Ooooh, this is gorgeous @____@ I love all the detail you packed in! I can't imagine how long it took to get the white nice and flat. O_o though I guess I will find out whenever I make my Chii mask XD;;

And my sympathies on a passing Grandfather. I lost mine 2 years ago, and I know how hard it is...
