Kitsune The Nine Tailed Fox by AngecondaBite Kitsune The Nine Tailed Fox by AngecondaBite
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. :D

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. :D

By the way, the flaming kanji in the background means 'fox' (or kitsune).

I hope you guys like this. *_*

I've never heard of the "kitsune", but I have heard of the Korean "gumiho" (nine tailed fox), which is almost the same thing. Apparently there's also a Chinese version called the Huli jing (fox spirit).

Wow, I learned something new today! :D

It's the same for firebirds, phoenixes, and Feihuang, right? They're all pretty similar, but they come fro different origins.

//slapped. I should stop replying to other people's comment boxes.

Wow this is really great!!! Especially since this doesn't seem to be your usual sort of art :P
I love the color scheme, and it's really cool how you created tone by just using black and lightblue for the body :la:

Good luck in the competition!!! :happybounce:

Wow.. this is interesting. If I had the money and I saw this shirt at a store.. I'd probably buy it. (Sorry I haven't been on much.. something different happened recently. Instead of losing the internet, we lost the electric.. got it back though.. but on a "Pay as you go" plan.. so.. I won't be on much.. we need to conserve.)

Whoa! Normally I'd say "good luck" but I'm pretty sure you will not be needing it there is no way this can't win. So beautifully done and the color selection is perfect.

That looks really awesome and definitely the kind of T-shirt I would consider buying in the store. I love the Icy colours and the fix looks lovely and its a kinda out of your element sortasa thing I guess, bcause at first glance I didnīt understand this was by you. Th fix looks really awesome though VVery realistic and I love the nine tails as they look more like one bg on together than nine litte freaky ones. Good luck in a contest!!
