Yamabushi Tengu, The Guardian of the Mountains by ArtistGT Yamabushi Tengu, The Guardian of the Mountains by ArtistGT
This drawing is actually 3-4 months old, so some things might not look as good as some of my more recent drawings. I initially gave up on this drawing because the legs looked awful (hence why they were cut) and a certain someone made me feel worse about it. Since I found this while searching through my stuff, I thought I'd upload it for giggles.

Anyway, I absolutely love Japanese Mythology, so I wanted to incorporate some elements of it into my comic and this is my take on the Yokai Tengu! This the second generation though. I'll make one for the first generation, the Karasu Tengu as well.

I hope you like this anyway!

Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one who uploads art which is older :"D
Ahem. Ok, sorry.
I think it's fine to upload old art though as you can see progress much better then.
I don't get one thing tho. What did the person tell you? I find it so annoying when people make others feel bad or insecure about their art. Don't lose motivation because of that.

Japanese Mythology is awesome btw. I look forward to your other characters as well!

Aye :'D

Yep ^^ I remembered I liked the way I drew the muscles, plus the nose looked good for once, so I thought "Might as well I guess?"
Basically she said the legs looked like they were inflated and when I asked what I could do to improve she just kept making lame jokes and comparisons.

Aye! (Fun fact: I caught both generations of Tengus in Yokai Watch recently >3<) yay! I'm glad you will ^u^

Yeah, I just cut off the legs and uploaded the way it was, after all it was finished months ago, so why keep it away? ^w^

Your welcome ^^ lol I have a memory from when I was young my grandmother had a tengu mask and every hour the time changed it sounded like the tenth mask was screaming and I would just sit there paralyzed with fear true story ^w^ xD

Oh really? That's so cool! I wish I had one >w< Can you show me a picture?~

That sounds terrifying indeed X3 perhaps it was due to it's expression that it seemed like it was screaming? Even in paintings they looked really pissed of XD

I don't have any pictures of it XD  but it does have a interesting expression  and it was pretty crazy and the facial expression it gave off was very scary
