Amaterasu Classic Mythology Sketch Card Picture


Amaterasu (天照?), Amaterasu-ōmikami (天照大神/天照大御神?) or Ōhirume-no-muchi-no-kami (大日孁貴神?) is a part of the Japanese myth cycle and also a major deity of the Shinto religion. She is the goddess of the sun, but also of the universe. The name Amaterasu derived from Amateru meaning "shining in heaven." The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-ōmikami, is "the great august kami (god) who shines in the heaven".

I completed 25 sketch cards (in both color and greyscale -- a change for me) and a base card for Perna Studios' Classic Mythology trading card set.

Approximately 2 x 3 inches. Copic markers, colored pencil, & white ink on cardstock.
