Mosura Fuka by weremagnus Mosura Fuka by weremagnus
Another timed character design assignment. Had from 9am-3pm (now) to design a 'Crooked Critter', IE an animal criminal.

This is Raijū (named after the mythical beast), he's a Japanese Marten and Yakuza thug. And a little flamboyant but hey he likes killing people.
I bypassed the YOU CANNOT TATTOO FUR rule because they were kinda essential to describing his profession.

I like him!

do you sketch traditionally and then color digitally? How do you go about in creating this? (coloring-wise)
Nice job by the way! :D

nothing more badass than a marten with a giant oni tattoo holy fuck. the view when he's standing holding the gun, the non gun hand looks like a stump at first glance but overall this is lovely

I guess it's ok to Tattoo fur since the Yakuza take it to some extraordinary, having a gangster thunder ferret animal do the same is awwright.

He's so cool I like the carp scales on his tail.

You can tattoo fur...
You just need a really, really good set of permanent markers.

I LIKE HIM TOO. Especially how top-heavy he is with those adorable little feets.

And who says it's a tattoo? He could just keep some other critter with a talent for henna dye very well paid with daily touch ups.
