Okami Amaterasu Mask 2011 by merimask Okami Amaterasu Mask 2011 by merimask
This is one of my most popular wolf masks. Based on the Japanese video game called "Okami", this is a depiction of the goddess Amaterasu as a wolf.

I designed this years ago but the pictures, I have come to realize, are dismal. So, I made a New Okami mask and took ~much~ better pictures today. Quite happy with the way they turned out.

The mask is carved out of 8oz leather, shaped by hand, and painted with Liquitex acrylics. Available in my Etsy shop only: [link]

Every time you make one of these, I want to play Okami again. :D Guess I should take a break from Pokemon White and get back to Okamiden.

At first I thought this was a drawing. Then looking at it closer I saw crease marks in the leather. You are very talented.

Love the reds in this, the black background simply make it pop! And the curls on the side of her face as just perfect. Great job!

I think the picture is really stunning. The mask has always been one of my more favorite designs - being the video game fanatic that I am - but I'm also always really appreciative of your pictures as well.

I like how the red ribbon looks almost luminous against the background. Love the shimmer.
