    ROUND #190:: Kitsune
    DESCRIPTION

    Kitsune

    Fox spirit from Japan.

    "Appearance: That of a superb vixen with a bushy tail ... Or that of a young woman who is so alluring that none can resist her. ... When the Kitsune turns herself into a vixen, she retains something of her womanly appearance, and when she is a woman, the vixen that quivers beneath the surface cannot be forgotten."
    From : "the Complete Encyclopedia of Elves, Goblins and Other Little Creatures" by Pierre Dubois

    Portray a Kitsune! Depending on the story they can be tricksy devils or loving wife (though usually with a tragic ending!). They are always beautiful and always slightly dangerous! Think up a story for yourself where a kitsune might appear, and design her accordingly!

    Kitsune:

    I wrote a story to go with the concept. Here it is:

    Once upon a time Kitsune was playing in the woods with other animals. As she was running away to hide, she got trapped. The other animals were too far to hear her. Suddenly she heard a noise and tried to free herself but only deepened the wounds on her leg. From the bushes appeared an old man with a walking stick. Kitsune was too scared to think and simply stared at the old man drawing nearer and nearer.
    "Poor creature. What did they do to you?" said the old man in a sweet voice.
    She tried once more to free herself but the gentle voice and the sorrowful smile of the man convinced her he was a good man. And he was good indeed. Using his walking stick, he opened the trap and freed Kitsune. She looked at the old man then at her paw. The old man crouched gently and bandaged the paw with his scarf and caressed her head. For a moment they stared at each other and the Kitsune smiled, though being a fox the old man was at first scared to see her teeth.
    The wounds were too deep to let her stand and the old man took her in his arms and, walking slowly, he took her home.
    He cured her and talked to her all the time as if he knew she understood him perfectly.
    Five days passed before Kitsune could walk again but, when the old man removed the bandages and she was at last free to run, she simply stood up and looked at him.
    "Go, you're free, little fox." Said the old man.
    Kitsune stood still. She closed her eyes and, in a flash of light, turned into a beautiful woman. The old man didn't seem surprised. "I knew you were special, little fox."
    "You knew it but asked nothing, and simply cured my leg. Now I owe you a present." She said. The old man was about to say something but Kitsune acted before he could speak. She started dancing around and as she touched the ground here and there plants and trees started growing around the little house. In no time the old man had a big garden filled not only with beautiful flowers but also useful vegetables and fruits. "These plants and trees will feed you as long as I'll remember your kindness. And you can be sure I have a strong memory." She said and they both laughed. "Now I have to leave but don't worry, I'll come and pay a visit to you every now and then."
    "You'll always be a most welcome guest." replied he and Kitsune danced away and disappeared.
    The old man lived for many years and Kitsune paid him a visit every month. They talked and laughed or simply stared at the marvels of nature she had brought him.
    But death, in the end, called him and on the day of his funeral Kitsune met the twin sons of the old man. They didn't know who she were and thought she was someone looking to have part of the lands of their dead father. She said nothing when they asked her who she were and simply stared at the flowers that were still blossoming on the trees as if the old man were still there with her. One of the sons, the ruder one, started inquiring in a rude way whether she was a "Special friend" of their father and if he had promised her something. "We're going to give you nothing of what our father has left behind. These fruitful land is our." Said he. Kitsune breathed heavily. The rude son went on. "You better leave now, girl. Take your stuff with you and never come back." It was enough. She was furious but, being a fox spirit she was obviously smater than the rude son.
    "Very well," she said turning to face the rude son. "I'm leaving and I'm taking with my all my stuff." The rude son smiled but his smiled soon faded. Kitsune took a deep breath and exhaled hot fire which rapidly destroyed the garden, the plants, the flowers. The two sons of the old man looked around, astonished as all that they thought would grant them a long and prosper life was turning to ash and dust. Kitsune walked away, and soon the forest swallowed her.

    I went with a more sedate wife type of concept, with just a hint of mischievousness.
    I'm not sure if the experiment with the kimono worked, but I like it... sort of
    good luck everyone!

    I nicknamed mine foxy, and gave it some "new" . The pose may seem a bit weird but, is a running pose of changing directions. Foxes usually do that when they are being chased or just running after pray , the red hair and trench coat reminds you of the red fur of the fox and the end of her trench coat that resembles a foxes tail. When she wants she can easily turn into a fox , her clothes being just an illusion for the viewers.
    Enough said ... the image will tell you more

    short story
    "Shiro learned trough his last 3 years that he could make a living by stealing from antiques shops, old peoples houses, cemeteries. He had an eye for the good stuff, you might say. One afternoon he was passing trough a cemetery in his hometown of Tokyo; suddenly a flicker caught his eye, it came one of the fox statues. They had long green or grey eyes of crystal quartz or some other diaphanous substance; and they create a strong impression as mythological conceptions. But he did not care for any of that, and approaching slowly the one statute that his hands were sweating to grasp, he noticed the abundance of rice that was laying on the ground around it , the closer he got, the more rice on the ground. Checked his surroundings and, pulled out a crowbar that he always kept with him and in a couple of moments the little fox came loose.
    'that was to easy' he said to himself , and he was already thinking how much he could get for it
    he turned
    a tall Caucasian lady with red hair and a red trench coat was standing right behind him, she was holding a cricket bat in her hand.
    he gasped
    words slowly came out of his mouth << やべ >>
    he starts running with the 1st step he takes , when he reached the gate of the cemetery, he took a quick look back, the woman was walking slowly behind him
    O_O , he was out of breath, but he kept on running, he didn't quite know what was happening, he took a turn in an alley, kept on running , with another glimpse he saw the tall woman running after him, he was running on his last resources , taking a turn here , jumping trough there, and so on , if he could only reach the train station.
    As he took a turn he felt the vibrant smack of the cricket bat to his forehead , his brain was rolling around inside his skull; then he felt a pain in his left ear ... X_X ." Fin!

    P.S. Don't excuse the bad English, it's not one of my strong points ^^

    Atsuko reveal a hint of her true nature to her husband Tarou.It was a warm sunset.The hands dry and heavy due to the long hours of fishing.The scent of soup filling the air.It was like every day, yet he can't believe what he sees.She smiles.He is a bit disoriented but walks to the hot meal.To the loving wife.To the strange illusion.They have to talk.But silence is for the moment, the only sound.

    Not really a story(my english doesn't allow me to do a proper story) but that was the main idea behind the entry.

    Kitsune lures lost souls into following her into a Hundred Ghost Night March. Bells ring out unto the night enticing men and lulling them towards a path akin to limbo, where the only thing you see is her wily sweet smile and the flowing tail behind her.

    This is my first CHOW entry and unfortunately I wasnt aware of the WIP rule. I forgot to save WIP's and I usually only work in 2 layers.. sketch and color. So I have no WIP's to show. I still wanted to post my entry though. Im not sure if Im subject to disqualification but Ill try anyways. Thanks!
