Tengu by Risachantag Tengu by Risachantag
I took some time off tonight to paint some original work, and after recently replaying World Ends With You, I felt like jumping in with some urban anime style work.

This is a modern take on the tengu, a bird monster from Japanese mythology.


Time: 5 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos tablet

The glasses on his head, hairdo and black wings made me think of Cooro from +Anima.

Thanks, it's because I painted it straight into Photoshop, so I just did a quick sketch to start with, and didn't ink it.

Tengu! I like birds, and wings, and feathers... add that to a human and it's fav! I really love how you depicted the Tengu here. You worked the wings into the shoulders and arms wonderfully, without having it appear separate or as the arms either. Great job.

I instantly thought this was Cooro from +Anima. But clicking on the actual picture I see it really isn't. Excellent work on the picture though. ^_^

Oh god, i am instantly taken back to the days of Reading ANIMA+ i love this peice for more than the nostalgia though. I've been a long time fan of your art and this piece is no exception. with immaculate detail and anatomy you bring to life the motion and feeling of a character.

i love how you did his wings with the feathers starting out on his shoulders. I've been trying to design a character with wings but could never figure out how to make the wings connect right. this is really clever and more believable. would you mind if I used that idea? I'll give u credit :)

There's a lot more about this picture that I like too. The colors, his expression, the movement, the markings on his arms, the clothes, your unique and modern iterpretation of a rarely seen mythological creature...so much! i could make a long list! I don't usually give long comments, but this picture deserves it! its fantastic! it really makes me want to get to know this character more! he looks like he could be the main character of an anime :)
