Okami by Hopie-chan Okami by Hopie-chan
Taken from the photographer's DA description of this shoot. She summed it up better than I can. =]:

"yes, its paint, not photoshop.

me and hope were inspired by the Wii game Okami, and for those who have every played it know how it is a colorful and wonderfully executed work of art and not some video game. Since Okami referenced japanese culture and history, i decided to look to the same place as well.
In japanese, basically, "oni" means "demon" and is usualy characterized by blue or red skin, tiger loins, and horns. Well, the background has faint tiger print and heather and hope are red and blue. The horns i made looked poopy, so no horns.
What made me choose to reference "oni" was because in the game Okami, one of the demons you fight are these bull ogres who are blue and red skinned. I decided to take this demonic vibe and the beautiful aesthetics of Okami and create a photoshoot based on the japanese culture and history.


so we started at 9am and ended at 6pm. I hand made the petals and hope and heather styled the wigs, cause they be good at that :)"
