This is the month's Suggestion Central tier reward on Patreon, featuring Sango from Inuyasha being attacked by a snake inspired by the yokai called "Nure Onna".

This is my first try at a summer-festival-like environment, and for this one I wanted to showcase the feel of being dragged away from the crowd and the coils making you too silent to be able to yell out to the crowd.

So a nice little helplessness thing and whatnot. Always a fan of that.

Anyway I hope this is enjoyable enough.

This looks lovely, I enjoy how the clothing bunches up about and around the coils and the placement is fun too! The only thing I would tweak is the coil about the neck, its nice but I would like to see it implied that the one end has to go above or below the other behind the neck, the way it looks now seems like a ring. I wouldn't even say anything but since you asked for critique that's one thing I would mention :3 Since it's making me type more I would also say that I like how the idle coils are playing with one another here, you should do that more and advance that so the coils are almost wringing one another in anticipation of the hunt <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

Miroku would probably watch her get squeezed a bit before intervening.

although it makes me weird to see a snake with hair, the coilsare really good on her!

Thinking about the summer festival (so in Japan) I wonder if a certain creature of legends
can give you ideas: the Rokurokubi (woman long neck)

The anatomy of these coils are actually inspired by the Rokurokubi to begin with. As for making something with such a yokai? Well, it's not entirely out of my reach.

This whole dora thing is becoming a meme, but I'm not here for that.
I'm here to bless ur ass Dani, all the coils around her look simpy perfect man,
they form around her clothing and body just the right way!
The clothing is generally super sweet, you really put in some extra effort there!
papa bless ya

Thanks for that. Both the compliments and lack of Dora comparisons. =P

It's also incredibly atmospheric!
I have never seen something like this, it's just some scene in the background of a festival.
I would have never even thought of lighting
scenes like that, it's really creative.
It happens in the shadows and there's just
the shimmering outline of light from a bright event. This is just a great composition!

Very neat concept you got going on, it's very cool to see something new from you and maybe we'll see some art similar to this, my only grip is that the Snake Yokai's body/coils isn't thick enough, but hey could be me. Nevertheless good art piece

Well, the coils being unnaturally thin is deliberate. Kinda wanted it to be a bit unnatural to look at to really pull off the yokai idea.

But I digress, I'm glad you enjoy it.
