Figure 84 - Tatsu and Skirutl by TheHiddenElephant Figure 84 - Tatsu and Skirutl by TheHiddenElephant
Tatsu is not my character.  He is a character from "Petshop of Horrors", which is a horror anthology manga series.  Nor is he human.  He is a Totetsu, a kind of Chinese Manticore.  They have the body of a ram, the claws and fangs of a tiger, and the face of a human.  And, of course, the eat humans.

I actually read Petshop of Horrors Tokyo, or New Petshop of Horrors, first, and they never told us what Tatsu was.  They barely mentioned his name.  He is also inexplicably dressed like Aladdin.  I suppose it works.  The original Aladdin took place in China, even though it was a story from 1,001 Arabian Nights.  Apparently, the muslims of 1,000 years ago thought China was also Islamic.  I am as baffled as you are.

I also drew Skirutl again.  I wanted to see how the new clothes would work, but as it turns out, I need to add a few more ties.  One wrong slip, and it's nosebleed land.  I also decided to give her dancing, because wind=dancing.
