Finally a Harikku (an oriental dragon-anthro critter) in full-body rendered glory! This would have to be the best single piece of my work to date...woo! The shading was fun but it took me *yonks*. But I am more than pleased with this. I really like the weapons he's wielding but unfortunately one of them didn't fit on the damned page! When attacking they use similar movements to Kung Fu and Karate instead of just hacking and slashing. This guy unarmed is deadly, but when armed he's deadly *and* painful...now go my Harikku, and kick some chameleon a$$! XD Oh, if anyone knows of a similar weapon that actually exists- please tell me! They're not qatars, but they're also not elbow-blades... Harikku concept, including garb and weaponry, is copyright (Melissa Anderson)
UPDATE: I've decided to name his weapons 'Phoenix Blades', coz the pointy bit looks like a beak and the long blade looks a bit like a wing. Whaddya reckon?
