I dunno where this Rakshases as Tiger-headed-people thing started, but I love it. This is adorable.

Okay, I've seen these guys drawn and described as having their hands on backwards (as in their palms being where the back of one's hand should be and vice versa), and I've seen them with regular hands. Can anyone offer me a bit of clarification?

Also, the drawing itself is incredibly gorgeous and expressive. I love it.

Apparently, there are Indian tales where the only way to recognise a shape-shifted rakshasa is by their hands, which they can't change to face the right way, or all their powers. This is second-hand information, so I cannot give any specific references, besides what was discussed here: fav.me/d8e8dfw

in D&D, their hands are traditionally inversed, but no limitation applies to their shapeshifted forms. In Indian art I have seen, hands look normal. 

Congratulations, SvetoslavPetrov for this picture. He looks very tricky, and also very much like a contented feline. There must be so ething interesting in the sheesha. I love his clothing, and the background, and the colour and texture of the glass of the sheesha are amazing.

Yeah guys.. in the original DND the hands are reverse. I thought this will goo too extreme for my personal taste , so i decide to do it in more human-like form. I was inspired from the East cultures .. for instance His bow is Persian replica ;)
