Ekami -Asterites Wish -Animated by warrior-oji Ekami -Asterites Wish -Animated by warrior-oji
8’D My entry for the Ecco the dolphin contest. Over at :iconecco-dolphin-club:
Ekami visits the Asterite, the ancient being of knowledge and power.
Granting the Gods wish he is given a song.
LMAO. 7 Tides of Time was too fun to pass up. |D
1 power for every tide? :3

Bah you knew I’d do something like this guys. XD Geeky I’m sad there wasn’t much else to pick from that’s epic. > Brain fart. Anything else seems stupid. OH Hey gaiz Dragonball lol.
It took me 2 days to draw 1 picture then edit it into frames.
I got to about 100 drawn. Total amount is probably 220 though XD
Messing with frames created a look that made Ecco slow down, as if he was listening to what was said <3
OTL Sorry for the size.

It would be incomplete if not animated, I couldn’t achieve what I wanted in just 1 picture. So yeah. x-x By now I am sick of looking at it/working on.
Simple, but 2 days of slavery to have it done <3 Ekami has a basic design.
Okami/Japanese ink style is best suited, and I am pleased it looks very much like the game does, I would enjoy if this were really a game. C: ffffffffff

;o; I REALLY wanted to do more, maybe some clan talking and other places, but it was already huge and I was tired. :’C

Ekami is suited with armor sidepieces, that sorta hold up a levitating crystal diamond-glyph, that acts as a shield?
I can see the sides bending to make wings for a flight form c:

Go here for the Frozen image
And here for the Short animation

:bulletgreen:GOOD POINTS:
Fluid movement and fun looking, as if it were really a game. 8O
Something animated. And unlike my others large scaled.
Using my comic skills here (bubble for speech) ;D
trying new things

:bulletred:BAD POINTS:
Size D: ow.
;u; I cannot add sounds/music which is a sads.
FIDDLY >8C Murderous layers gave me so much troubles. Ugh then piecing them together. X-x
Epic fail, Asterite doesn’t swirl, but I wasn’t dealing with that. X-x he’s sorta nice just hanging frozen. :I
Cheesy and really crap ‘brush’ effect, the picture turning sepia. XD does its job.
I do not own Ecco the dolphin or Okami

The asterite. *sigh*

The asterite is a friggen idiot. Why?

Ok, so his stupid ball is missing. He needs you to get it back. Solution? Go back in time and steal it from his younger self.


If you'd just shut up for five freaking seconds and not told me that, your stupid ball wouldn't be missing would it? Ffffff.

No, I can't get past that level. I've tried for HOURS. That first game is too hard. It's almost not fun. I have a better chance of beating I Wanna Be The Guy.

Ugh, the Guardian spoke in riddles that made my head spin but at least he didn't go making time loops like that. Sheesh.

:C I like him except in the past he's a nasty old bastard, :I And not so cool in the future being all upgraded-shiny tech lol. I like his concept.

XDDDD I enjoy the twisted time paradoxy.
LOL. :'U Did it as a child, but tried recently and failed for hours too. XD It was kinda half dumb luck. >:U
There is a trick to it though, you need to hit 3-4 globes of the same colour. OTL There's a small shortcut to missing half the level, if you live then yeah... you get to DNA boss.
Oh I know how hard the 1st was, actually flew through it recently in a few hours, up till the asterite in the past. XD Think I only once did the machine as a kid, NEVER AGAIN! *uses cheats because did it once so I don't care* >8C Tides was evil, played it at my PC and almost snapped my wrists to finish. :'C
fffffffff I don't care if it's no fun, I am a dolphin and it's too awesome. LMAO.
I actually prefer DOTF because it's got some calm/play levels and more exploration.

XD Hahah! Love the riddles, and today sort of use that in my stories and writing. ;)

If the sonic attack does not work on him then I am f***ed.

BladedMako Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
Ok, beat him finally (I was supposed to go on the left side all along? FFFFFF) But now I'm stuck on Welcome to the Machine. It's complete bullshit! The whole thing! I swear to god, when I die on the final boss I will keep hitting the reset button on the sega and enter in the stupid password 1,000,000 times rather then play through that damn level again.
warrior-oji Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
XDDDD You can go anywhere, really. HAVE FUN! XD
IKR. :T It's so cruel, even the Japanese simplified and changed the level. X'D The stomach.
BladedMako Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012
Okay, I finally beat it and I got into the boss level...AND THERE WAS AN ALIEN DIRECTLY BELOW ME :iconfffffffplz: SO I DIED IN THREE SECONDS!!! Are you freaking kidding me?! These evil fucking bastards. I dealt with all the b.s. you cooked up, now let me win!

Ugh, I was so mad. Total bullshit.

|D Now you know why it's called hard.
I do think redoing the machine was tad much :1
ShadowDagger Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow :wow: makes me believe you're working for the Ecco game company :D The quality is awesome-sauce and the animation is so smooth :O and it certainly gives that Okami-ish feel that I miss :stare: poor-poor PS2 why did you have to leave me ;_;

Anywho xD Your hard work is really payed off, this is most impressive. Go supah Oji :D :worship:
warrior-oji Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Bahahah! Sadly no :'C
I do love how it looks like a simplistic flash game tho <3

Psh. X'D Its laggy here. And the Quality was grain-dulled by gimp and whatever. /:
;u; I am sorry I made you feels again. hehe.
;n; Ecco did the same.

ARGH! It no pay off for me > bitter. XD
:'C TY Praise eases my hatred for this.
I think small is better. XD I love my icon sized things c: n painty style.
