Hipster Tengu by D-pi Hipster Tengu by D-pi
I don't know if this is the colorway I'll use as final... I'm gonna submit it to the Beasts.
I imagine modern tengu would do this sort of thing, being vain and mischievous. Probably steal high end levi's and replace them with fakes.
I don't want to pull an Obama, so one of Lesean's characters also where's adidas getas... or "Ghettas" as I am calling them. These are Tengu no ghettas.
I'm gonna post another color way on my blog.

i like the perspective, colors and shading, all the different patterns and combination of modern styles + old japanese stuff, and the scene is just pretty badass, like it's a movie i would want to watch many times over. probably if i missed something i like it, too. :v

This is REALLY kickass!!!!
I love how you combine modern and new, how you keep some of an ukiyo-e feeling yet doing it your own way and how you keep it kind of flat with decorative, blocky colour background yet give a totally 3D feeling with the composition! It's really great and exciting image!

Love those colours, the intimacy of the shade and setting. This is just fan-bloody-tastic.

Excuse me for asking, but would it be okay if I could use these guys as reference for a t-shirt design I'm doing? See, recentlyI've thought up of making a set of designs, each one using a yokai as the main subject. of course one of em, just had to be a tengu and, i was thinking, why not give the more humanlike ones an urban feel. So now I come humbly asking permission to use this dope-ass piece of hotness as a ref.

I'm not even sure if there is any way at all that I can express just how awesome this is. Flat out inspiring that's what. How do you master the human figure like that? very impressive, even though I'm not familiar with the characters.

YOU're not jocking my style. I think I have sparked a bit of a trend in some circles, but don't worry. Hehehe... keep working hard and post that drawing!
