so, this is my submission for the okami contest.
it is a sakura tree, and i made it out of wire. it's an ACEO.
my inspiration was actually from the news story
you see the tree in the 3rd pic? that's it. also, my sister
says that in okami, there's a mainline quest where you have to get the sakura trees to bloom. so hey, double good!
design (c) meh!
technique learned here: [link]
this is now available in my etsy store
others that are similar will soon be available. because i'm addicted to makin' trees now. [link]
also, this is one of my entries for the DA marketplace contest
. here's a poll about it: [link]
oh, and this tree costs $25 US with shipping.
