Close up of cute Itegami!

Happy Lunar New Year of the Ox 2021 this Friday! 🐂🧧

Yes I’m early ;D

Itegami, the Celestial god of Blizzard! ❄️

Let us face the year with diligence, reliability, honesty, sincerity and kindness like the ox! Apparently it’s the year of the hardworking, modest and methodical metal ox!

Happy new lunar year to you! (:

Let’s review all the previous 6 years I did this Okami Lunar New Year fanart project!

Comparison from 2015 to 2020!

2015 Year of the Mist Sheep (Kasugami) / where I rendered too much fluffy wool

2016 Year of the Flower Monkey (The Hanagami) / I still kind of like this one

2017 Year of the Fire Rooster (Moegami) / the majestic phoenix

2018 Year of the Dog (Shiranui, Amaterasu, Issun & 8 Canine Warriors) / because the dogs of this game are so incredible!

2019 Year of the Bombastic Boar (Bakugami) / sleepy pig! I relate to this :’)

2020 Year of the Power Slash Rat (Tachigami) / where I wanted to do them cute!

2021 Year of the Blizzard metal Ox (Itegami)

And here we are! I don’t know if I got better for this particular year :’)

I hope to get better at my own pace plus I think there’s 5-8 more years to go for all the Celestial Brush Gods!! :’) And the Year of the Tiger is next!

Anyhoo, thank you for coming along for my little art & life journey!
