Demon Lord Ninetails by TheLaarc Demon Lord Ninetails by TheLaarc
(Older art from summer 2009)
It'd feel wrong to not put his awesome battle music here, too.


My favorite character and boss from the wonderful game Okami!

This is a little older, but I'm still surprisingly happy with it. I've loved Ninetails from the first time I played Okami, even if he is a complete and utter monster. I have a big thing for kyuubi though, haha. I had always wanted to draw a picture with his "fake" constellation in the background and this gave me a good opportunity to do so! Looking back on it now the stiff pose bothers me a lot, but I'm still pleased with the coloring and details. Once this semester is over I'll probably draw him again.

Hope you enjoy! :heart:

The Demon Lord isn't mine, sadly; he belongs to Capcom.

Ah my fav Okami boss: the paper mache' (sp?) fox! But seriously, cool art here. The way it looks here, it could definitely pass as a brush god.

Ninetails is my favourite boss, she's amazing!

Anyway, this is great. I love how you've made her constellation and her red moon. :heart:

Awesome!

You wanna know what's interesting?

I am watching a LP of Ookami and the LPer is now fighting the Ninetails! I logged onto DA for fun and I was like 'OMG the website is stalking my thoughts?!'

I never actually watched any Okami LPs! Maybe I should go check some of them out. Thank you for the comment! :aww:

No problem!

The one I was watching was done by a Lper named Chuggaaconroy and he's pretty good.

I remember feeling genuine horror when I completed that constellation. I absolutely love this piece.
How did you find reference for all the masks on his tail? Or did you improvise? :)

I loved how the Ninetails battle initially took place in an atmosphere mocking the one you saw for the real Brush Gods. It was done so well.

Glad you asked! I referenced the game itself through the concept art you unlock after completing the game once, but even then I had to improvise a tad. :) I replayed the game last summer and realized that a few of the masks I drew were off or in the wrong order going by Ninetails' in-game appearance, but oh well.

Thank you for the comment! :aww:

Yeah I think that's why I was so horrified. Such a villainous villain. Beautifully written game! <3

Oh yes of course, I forgot about the concept art. xD
It doesn't need to be exact, they look great! ^_^

Absolutely! Okami is probably the best game I've ever played.

Yeeaah I still had to do some guess work here and there with the masks. Hopefully I wasn't -too- far off. XD
