Nekomata is a Japanese spirit with a tail that has partially split in two. I have chosen the colours that comes from the Japanese bobtail cat.

The guy at the back wears a lion mask. I thought given it the idea that he would scare the Nekomata away. Thats why he also has a Katana in his hand. The mask on the floor belongs to the Nekomata. Maybe because he wanted to hide his cruelness and yet he was getting unmasked by the one who found him, then his true spirit shows his powahh. >o>

Anyway, not quite happy with this at all. I thought the idea was cool, but still have a lot of practicing thats need to be done.
PLEASE don't mind the hands. They were a pain in the ass since I can't draw hands good and colour well yet. For the past few weeks I was very tired and didnt had the motivation. I made the lineart almost 2 months ago.[link] Finally TOOK the time to colour this. Most fun of all was colouring the Nekomata/cat. I now am able to make ''better'' furrrrr..

The words at the left side means: Nekomata.
