sorry to Artistic-Gaming for submitting this so close to midnight (hopefully i just made the deadline) but i've been short of time to work on it
ok, so this a polymer clay and acrylic paint sculpture of Amaterasu from Okami and her pup Chibiterasu from Okamiden exchanging Valentines Day presents!
(some other views that show the details better are here [link]
Chibiterasu is holding a heart valentine that says "#1 Mom" because i'm cheesy like that
in the front is a scroll that reads "Happy <3 Day" because Happy Valentines Day wouldn't fit...behind that is an opened present with a few holy bones in it, which are described in Okami to be "Amaterasu's favorite snack" so i figured they'd make good presents
scattered around are various stylized (spelling?) flowers on top of grass. i don't know if it's very visible, but the grass was made by painstakingly poking literally THOUSANDS of teeny holes in a slab of green clay. honestly went crazy sitting there for a few hours just repeatedly poking a piece of clay...
it's not visible here, the link to the collage shows it better, but i made ammy's divine instrument heart shaped too, and it "floats" about half a centimeter or so off her back. the bamboo base was recycled from the lid of an old junk box i found
okami and characters are not mine, they're Capcom's
