If I may ask, did you use any references for the background? (and if so- what were they and where could I find them?)
For my language class - Japanese, Advanced- I have to create a children's ABC book- or a short story. I have the story underway but am having some difficulty with the visual (since i've never done a kid's book before.) I would love to know where you got your inspiration for this piece. :)

I don't know if you're still here, but I was wondering if I could possibly use this image for a website? I know you sell prints, but I'm not sure how much this would cost.

I use photos of Inari fox statues as my symbol when I work as a manga translator, so I thought that an Inari image would be appropriate for my personal website. Not many people will be seeing it, as it is a personal site for me, but I wanted to get permission from you and not steal.

If you're still here, drop me a line!

This pic is apparently CC-By-NC-ND licensed, if that helps. >.>b May not work for a commercial site though since it's only licensed for noncommercial use.

BTW, I don't do commercial work--I'm an amateur scanlator. No money is made through what I do.

Currently, I simply put things on my livejournal for people to take...and I want to move these scanlations that I've done to a personal website.

Does this qualify as a commercial site? I personally do not feel that way, but I'd like to err on the side of caution.

Since you're not making money, I'm pretty sure it doesn't qualify as a commercial site! Might check the Creative Commons license just to be sure.

one thing about inari, DON'T PISS HER OFF. I've read many a legend where her fury against someone is a fate worse than death.

This is really beautiful. You can really tell who is being depicted here. Have you drawn any other japanese deities/spirits?
