Well, today was the day to try a new art-style for me so as to enter this awesome contest - and I am fairly pleased with how it came out.
For those of you who are like O_O "It's Ninetales from Pokemon!!! Or the fox from Naruto!!!" Actually, a kitsune is the Japanese word for fox, and according to Japanese folklore, a 'kitsune' grew tails according to their age and wisdom; the limit of which was nine. These magical kitsune also had the ability to shift into human form. Depending on the story, the kitsune could be something of a "spirit" or 'Inari', or even a demon is some tales.
For those of you who know me, you know why I chose this creature. Foxes are my favourite animal - and magical foxes?? Yeah, no competition for that.
By the way, the flaming kanji in the background means 'fox' (or kitsune).
I hope you guys like this. *_*
