Spirits of Gaia: Mu

Share

Based on the Land Spirits side-quest from Final Fantasy IX, this little project will involve each Spirit emulating a real-life spiritual or religious pose or theme.

Mu's pose is based on the maneki-neko, or the 'beckoning cats', which is believed to provide good luck to the owner of the place that it is placed in. I came with the conclusion that Mu was a hybrid of a chipmunk, a fox and a bear (for its paws). Among all the Spirits, Mu was the only mammal, so I thought it would be the closest fit to doing the lucky-cat pose.

EDIT: Front page! This is exciting stuff, thank you very much Newgrounds people. :)

She is such a drama squirrel, lol. Cool work.

Wow! Interesting project you' ve got there.
I wonder how you will match the other spirits, like Garuda and Yan.
Great job!

Bandanana responds:

Thank you! I'm still going to have to do a little research for how I'm gonna play each of them out. :)

This is fucking rad! Was this done by water color or digital?

Bandanana responds:

Thanks man! And all digital! I overlayed a texture on the drawing that gives it that 'traditionally drawn' look :)
