Ōkami Ammy (Amaterasu’s) Black Eyes Explained

Three fanarts of Ammy. Text: Wolf eyes, Black eyes, ...No eyes?

In the Ōkami video game, are Ammy’s eyeballs black, empty voids, or some kind of expression of her spiritual energy? Why are Ammy’s eyes so dark?

Some Ōkami fanart shows Ammy as having normal (or specially coloured) wolf eyes, while some fanart shows Ammy as having purely black eyes, and other fanart will show absolute blackness/voids, as though there were no eyes there at all.
This blog post aims to make sense of Ammy’s eyes.
