Draw dragons to improve your composition skills. #Smaugust composition challenge. August 1 - 31
I did this for one of my projects (that I didn't finish due to an issue that I will tell when I'll come back). It had to be religion-related, so I drew my own version of Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess in Shinto.
The letters on the side is written Amaterasu-Okami if I remember, meaning "the Great Goddess" or "the Great Spirit that illuminates Heaven", and it's her full name. The letters on Kusanagi means Ame-no-murakumo-no-tsurugi "Heaven's Cloud-Gathering Sword".... I used Wikipedia, so I'm not sure ^^;.
