Party Run by vantid Party Run by vantid
A tanuki (raccoon dog) runs to the party...I guess it's a BYOB.

Inked with a crow quill. I have a lot to learn with quill inking. So far I enjoy it very much.

Well if I remember correctly they are some form of diety of sake.

The difference between a tanuki and a raccoon dog: frighteningly massive bollocks

The detail in this is friggin' ridiculous though. Really ace; it really has the feeling of a classic sort of illustration.

wonderful! And you know that they aren't racoons! You did a nice job with anatomy and upholding certain mythological characteristics (ehem)

Why do Tanukis always have big uh....er...scrotum?

It's part of their mythology. They have shapeshifting abilities and the males have the power to mold their scrotum independently of their body. So that's why they're shown like that so often. Now, as for why that idea came up in the first place, you'll have to ask the Japanese. (crazy asses)

Ah, thank you.
I wonder what else they can mold independently. ;)
