Demon Lord Ninetails 210 min. by Kiseba Demon Lord Ninetails 210 min. by Kiseba

this picture has crippled me. Trying to get 9 freakin' tails in 3 and a half hours. It's rough stuff.

Anywhoooo, I LOVE how it turned out. Immensly. This is probably my best picture in a long time.

As you can see from the title, this took waaaaay longer than my other pics in the series. However, all that time paid off, so I'm considering to spend lots of time on the next ones. Red kanji should be my name (Jen) and black kanji should be kyuubi (ninetails). I'm not sure if they're right.

Background is courtesy to [link] . I have fallen in love with the textures they have. If anyone likes textures, check them out.

Up next.......Ammy or Shiranui? I dunno which one to do first.

edit: Thanks for all the comments. I noticed a BIG mistake. I forgot to color the pearls on the tails! Let's just pretend that they are knots of the green cloth until I get it fixed.

edit: Problem fixed!

The colours are also fantastic!

I've seen this piece millions of times except on DA until now. XD But... I daresay it's my favorite painting of Ninetails ever. That only slightly exaggerated, cocky posture, perfect expression, beautiful colors... and the details in the body. So much love.

All that hard work paid off. This is marvelous, my jaw dropped when I saw it, tis true. You managed to capture the aggression and grace Ninetales has, along with a little bit of his attitude. The flow with the tails is really nice as well and you kept pretty true to the style of the game art. Great work, I wish that I could compare~

And you're so right about the textures. I'll be sure to try them out myself.

Oh my...Simply astounding. I have to say I'm envious of how you managed all the tails. I always find that a problem. XD

It MAY have been rough stuff, but as far I as can tell this is a wonderful drawing that totally deserved that work and is worthy of recognition! Plus I love Ninetails from Okami, and you drew in a style very remiscent of the game.
Great work!
