Priestess Okuni

Another sketch before going to bed. Yeah, she's thick.

I won USD$500 for this character design back in 2000. The contest was AXN- Anime Hero Drawing Contest and it was held in Singapore. I relocated my family from a disease-infested town and bought my PS1 from that money.

The win was also very encouraging for me because I entered that contest after only a year of serious doodling and won.

Here's a colored replica of my contest entry if anyone of you are interested.
