Kitsune: lineart

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This was gift art for a friend of mine based on her preference for a kitsune drawing.  I tried to incorporate well the symbols and aspects she asked to be in it, namely the tomoe (symbol under the kitsune's paws), magatama (below eye), three tails, Inari shrine gate/torii, key in mouth, bib, and other body markings.  The magatama and body markings will be red when I finish the colored version, and the kitsune will be white.  Some aspects of the kitsune's design and coloration are inspired by the game Okami, though only loosely, and the face is also inspired partially by the Japanese kitsune statues, which is the reasoning for his blank eye.  I wanted to portray the fox as being part alive and part not--looking similar to a living statue as well as a spirit.  A colored version will be added to my gallery later sometime after I finish it. Created in 2008 using pencil and micron pens.
