Done with inks and ecoline on handmade paper. Lots of references used [only official game art though].
Those swirls are so comfortably hypnotic.
The colors you used to compliment them make it that much more warm and inviting to get lost in the details.
Ammy looks so great and fluffy in your style and also her weapon is stunning! The colours are awesome, as well. And it is a nice idea to add these smudges. *-*
This looks amazing, Is. I've Always been a big fan of Okami and you're right, every now and then I think back of it and a smile hits my face.
I love the dynamic pose and all the swirls! ^^ Makes me want to do fanart for the game again as well, hehe.
