I almost exploded when yokai were added to WoE. I read through (more accurately ran through) the lore and exploded again. I couldn't wait to design some yokai!
I initially didn't want to do a kitsune, but the idea came very easily so I decided to go with it.
This is just a rough idea for Arata, I wanted to play with the colours (which still look dull to me) and try drawing kitsune-bi, which is why there is simple shading. The kitsune-bi was a pain for me, vectoring shapes like that is tiring. Still, it doesn't look too bad for my first animal. The ball...er...hoshi no tama was a mystery to me. I did a little research to see how it was depicted in art, which is why it just looks like a very light teal ball. I didn't really know how to make a collar that would look "natural" for a spirit, so it's just floating there for now.
...kinda looks like a wolf instead of a fox...his ears are so big though...
