TEMPORARY dA ID [OwO] by kura-ou <- For the longest time, I wasn't sure if I wanted to sell his design or keep him for myself because I loved his design and the back story I came up for him ;^; But...I really need the money. I apologize that I cannot mention the details in public .__.

This is my submission for :iconphrysethadopt:'s contest: :squee: ONLY KEMONOMIMI ADOPTS CONTEST (OPEN)
:new:Final Countdown for this contest: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/to?iso=20140401T0001&p0=137&msg=Final+Countdown+KemonoContest&csz=1
Hi guys. I think the previous adopt contest held by :iconhumankemonoadopts:
was quite a success. And I've earn my income smoothly this week amg, thank God,
I am now opening a new adopt contest. Yay! <3
This is the contest where only KEMONOMIMI ADOPTS are allowed to enter.
There will be 3 division open for this contest, Skilled, Average, and Beginner,
to give opportunity for artist from all level to compete in this contest. \(^-^)/
:new: There are some of you guys who are not sure which division they want to enter.
The reason I make up this division because when all the skilled, average, and beginner artists
compete in single division, obviously those skilled ar

About the adoptable:
I wanted to make a humorous dragon kemonomimi character that was wished up by a really nice man who just wanted a friend after his wife and kid left him for being too kind and causing his business to decline into bankruptcy. One day, his wish came true and this meiwu appeared to be his companion... That was, until the man's sadness over his broken family made him take up drinking and there was nothing the meiwu could do to curb it. He later died and the meiwu was still left with his life energy. He felt guilty and wanted to die for not being able to save his master. But because he was still left with decades of life energy, he decided to drink his life away. But after a few decades, he saw that he could not get sick the way mortals did and gave up on trying to die. One day, in the last few hours of his life, he saw that a bunch of humans were trying to burn away a plum blossom forest and attacked them, scaring them so much that the after the incident, no human dared to harm that forest. Upon seeing this one act, a deity presented him with eternal life and a magical calabash that would be used to store an endless amount of plum wine and the weapon that he would use to defend the plum blossom forest. The calabash's magical properties can only be commanded by him, and to ordinary people, it just looks like another drunken person's wine gourd.

...Yes, if his master lived longer, he probably would have had some BL teaser moments with the way he's dressed. The top half of his clothing was inspired by the female Chinese hanfu and the lower half is a hakama held up by a belt. He wears knee-length boots with very thin, eclipse-shaped heels. He has exactly 7 braids and a very wavy mullet. And yes, he actually has plum blossoms blooming on his "horns" (they only wither when he's angry).

I tried to use a new painting style for his hair, but I don't think I was successful :iconotlplz:

These guys NEED a home. someone who will use them. Maybe you are having artist block, are looking for a specific character or someone's bday is coming up and you want to gift them. Well maybe there is something here you'd like/
Like before, i am upset because I feel like the adoptable thing is starting not to be for me..even though it is fun. Thanks to all who cheer me up and can deal with me. I lowered and made these all set price so I can just get rid of them.
First come first serve. Paypal only. Please note me if you are wanting to buy one of the cuties. I expect payment within 24 hours, if not they will be put up for buying again. I really am in need of the money anyway //le sigh//.
Please if you buy them and end up not using them and decide to resell them; resell them for only the amount you bought them f
