He looks swift and cunning, this raccoon native. B-)

He is a canine actually.

Even though this calls him a tanuki.

Yes, tanukis are canines.

Though tanukis are also known as "Japanese raccoon dogs." No exaggeration.

All raccoon dogs are canines. Raccoons are procyonids. Raccoon dogs are not raccoons.

This picture makes me hungry for mouse tempura. If you get that anime reference you would be as big of a nerd as I am.

I really like those bright eyes, the pose and the soft lighting (suggesting dawn or dusk) makes this look very convincing. Great work!

EEEE! A Tanuki! @@
I really love how this keeps with the dark, muted tones I expect in your work, but the actual oranges, yellow and greens in it are quite bright and saturated. Masterful use of color here. And what a cutie!

Nicely illustrated tribute to the famous tanuki myth! I like how you gave this character a canine-esque muzzle thus staying true to the Japanese raccoon dog.
