Givannzi by Checker-Bee Givannzi by Checker-Bee
Clever and cunning, Givannzi the crafty guiding spirit is a neither a friend nor foe. Show him respect and gratitude (and he wouldn't say no to a few pears either!), and he'll guide you to wherever or whatever you need. Betray or lie to him, however, and he'll leave you stranded and on some occasions, play a vengeful prank while you desperately try to find your way. You'd best be wary when dealing with a fox spirit, because with him, every move is a gamble.

He's roughly based on the Italian folk tale of Giovannuzza the Fox. Look it up! It's pretty cool! for once, the fox isn't the villain!

Working on characters for my new story :) This was my first time drawing him and playing with his costume. I quite like how it turned out!

Drawn with a pencil and paper, edited with Sai
Time: 1.5 hours

This character belongs to MEH! :D

Something that I think would be AWESOME is if people supply me with a picture of their OCs then I'd cosplay and model them for them :D

how about we talk about it when we see each other at Aki-Con, then I can be sure to get the details right :)
(I'm a total detail freak, if something isn't "perfect" then I go INSANE! xD)

that sounds good :) Maybe I can draw you a reference pic. Some things to note are that because he's a Fox Fai (pronounced like Faye, physical manifestation of the spirit of the fox)he has fox ears and a big fox tail that he hates to get dirty (so that's why he's holding it up in the picture :)) I'm still working out his personality, but I do know he's neither good or bad, kinda lazy at times but loves to gamble, so he can be a little reckless for the thrill of the game, loves pears, and will do almost anything for the people he cares about unless they deny and/or betray him somehow. He's also very agile and swift :) As you can tell, he's one of my favorite characters! XD

I like the almost sepia tone you've used here and the dice hanging off his ear is a damn cool touch
