Kai Reference Sheet - Okami by sketchthestars Kai Reference Sheet - Okami by sketchthestars

At first I had this idea of drawing up reference sheets for all the Oinas of Kamui, since a. there's only fanart of Oki and some small bits of Samickle here and there, and b. I CAN'T FIND REFERENCES ANYWHERE. I want the artbook, but it's muy expensive and ls;kfhhfdkjl. Issun's art gallery isn't even that helpful. So if people start finding more of these things useful, I'll put together the rest of them and submit it as one monster deviation. This'll be scrapped later today. Otherwise, it ends with Kai.

...I don't know why I wanted to draw Kai first seeing as she's not even remotely popular. xDD

Oh, and I know I forgot a ref of her mask. My scanner's being bitchy. As far as I know, the markings, the hair, the antlers, and the necklace are exactly as they appear in the game. Let's just say it took a long time of positioning the camera just so. x_x I'm pretty sure I got my excercize worth of running back and forth from my drawing table to the TV. xDD If you see any faults with markings or anything, please comment and I'll look into it.

*EDIT: I've noticed this has been getting faved a bit (which, in reality, is only 4 faves but for me that's actually not bad). So you've got me thinking about continuing these character sheets. Comments are also appreciated; if you want to see more, show me that people care enough to want them. xD

I'd love to see the rest of the Oina -- no good refs of their wolf forms seem to exist!

Thank you! I've been looking for a good reference of Kai and I really hope you do the rest of the Oina [and maybe the Canine Warriors?]. I have the Okami Artbook and even though it's full of beautiful artwork, it isn't much help looking for Oina wolf form references. There's only Oki and Kai in their wolf forms, even though I've experimented and found out what each of the other Oina's wolf forms look like [You have to draw a circle on them if my memory serves right].

You have no idea how much this drawing really made my day!! I'm in the process of drawing my own Okami charater, and I've looked everywhere trying to find the right picture of Kai to have as a reference. This really helps!

Wow ^^ Thanks. I love kai and your right, there are no refrences, anywhere. Everytime I want to draw her, i'm never at the part where she is... T-T

THANK YOU!!!!! I love you. In a totally platonic/'I look up to you' sort of way. Sorry, I've had too many basil-tomato-mozzarella cheese sandwiches. And I thank you for your hard work. I'm playing Okami for the, what, fourth/fifth time? (Stopped keeping track) And I'm obsessed with it again, so, I'm going to fanart my brains out. And Now all I need is an Oki reference. *flies off with the grace of a praying mantis on a sugar high*
