245 - Suicune by Narsilion 245 - Suicune by Narsilion
this fella for: :iconrenacirca-leblanc:

..no arguing about whether it's supposed to be a dog/cat or whatever. As far as I'm concerned, it's somewhat based of a qilin (kirin) that has a canine-like anatomy and moves sorta like a feline.. that's my brain, so shush.

I just love this to pieces. The coloring is gorgeous and I love the detail you put into the fur and horn.
This is very close to how I imagine Suicune would actually look; not a wolf or a cheetah or what have you. Deer/unicorns are considered pure animals, and I've seen them represented as pure forest spirits. I also like the idea of him being based off of a Qilin; it's one of my favorite mythical creatures :XD:

Yes, but I hate it when allemeinen, DSAs Qilin is a Japanese animal. There is a Chinese character, originally from China. The Japanese have all my copies Qilin and now that it comes from Japan. It's a dumb copy.
The Japanese have even copied so some, such as l the Eiffel Tower.

That's exactly how I imagine Suicune to be =p It's definitely not a dog... None of them are.
Very nice, I'm loving the mane!
