Strangely I am more of a fan for Susanoo than Amaterasu since it seems that she was the favorite of Takamagahara (Japanese equivalent of Mount Olympus) That when he finally leaves she thinks he has ulterior motives finally causing to snap and wreck the place. You know the rest and than he gets banished. Also he doesn't seem to be mean in the texts just a boy who feels overshadowed by his triplet sister.

Geez, Amaterasu you made brother mortal so how are you gonna make sure their is rain so the crops get water? Since just because your triplet brother wrecks your domain you still had hand in it because you thought the worst of him.

Also do you have a tumblr where I can reblog this from?

Itīs about two month ago when our Japanese teacher told us about Shinto and story about Izanagi and Izanami and their childrens. I really loved that story!  Your Amaterasu and Susanoo are beautiful! It would be nice to see Tsukiyomi too. Susaso is so hot in this picture! Hope he doesnīt tease little Amaterasu too much ~ :)

You do realize I'm gonna have to stalk your uploads now, right?

...This is so unbelievably amazing! Such smooth colors and shading, pristine proportions, and geez... that right there is some fine talent. You're so masterful with your colored pencils and pastel. Daily Deviation, well earned.
