Okami Chess Set White Pawns by ChibiSilverWings Okami Chess Set White Pawns by ChibiSilverWings
Oh good lord. I finally started on this mega-complex project witness the start of my Okami chess set! I'm 1/4 of the way, but it's alll uphill from here.

These were the easiest of the pieces and they were still really challenging! I never noticed how different dog breeds facial structures were. I mean I KNEW they were different I just never took notice of what ways.

So this is the Canine Warriors left to right: Gi, Tei, Jin (Ume), Chu (Hayabusa), Rei, Chi, Shin, and Ko

In game these guys sorta annoy me, especially Tei. As for my work here, I HATE how Ko came out and I really like Tei and Rei. The rest I'm mostly happy with, though I have various little hems and haws about color choices and such. The problem with Okami is having so many different color references and trying to make the character look true to my own image of them. AUGH. I hope I succeeded.

I look forward to making more of the set soon, if you're curious what the pieces will look like here's my concept sketches:

Thanks goes to the talented :iconstkbayfield: for photo taking and editing.

I loved Okami, and when I saw this I was like....OMG YAY! :D I would be so afraid to play chess with them though, because they look so delicate!!! They look just like the dogs though :)

My work is usually not as fragile as it looks hahah I make cellcharms too! There will be some pieces in here that are a bit more fragile, but the dogs are pretty darn sturdy :D
