Edit X2: Shaded and finished!
Edit: I made a better background. I made it to imitate the background of what I call 'the non-main character intro' part of the first season's first opening sequence. In that segment the background has a purple splotchy background with the 'Fear' symbol just like this (the Fear Symbol is the symbol for the Nura clan). Just FYI that very first anime opening sequence is my fave! I love the song and the animation. it's so neat
I added the text on the left just for this pic. It says 'Ryoutaneko Bakenekogumi no oyabun' which translates to 'Ryoutaneko leader (as in the yakuza term for leader) of the ghost cat clan'. (oh and as for the deviation title.. 'Bakenekoya' is the name of the restaurant that the Bakenekogumi runs)
The clans and groups in Nurarihyon no Mago work like yakuza clans do, so they use yakuza terms a lot. Ryoutaneko's underlings actually call him 'Oyabe' (or what sounds like it from the Japanese anime and the subtitle reads that as 'boss',)so I'm assuming it's probably slang for 'Oyabun'. (I would read the untranslated manga if I could find any to make sure I am correct in what it is they refer to him as, but all the ones I read from Mangareader.net and the like have already cleaned off most of the original Japanese text and replaced it with translation.) oh well
I will shade this later still
In my contribution to the April fool's thing I made Ryoutaneko from Nurarihyon no Mago (A.K.A. Nura: Rise of the Youkai Clan)
Ryoutaneko is the cat boss of the youkai cats (cat demons) in Ukiyoe town under the protection of the Nura clan and he is owner of the Bakenekoya restaurant as well.
I love Ryoutaneko. He's so cute. In the cast of 100+ characters of Nurarihyon no Mago (really, theres' a TON of characters) he's a fairly minor character, but I still love him.
This pic took a lot longer than I had planned on... I had only planned on making a sketch but it ended up being inked with the pen tool cus I just couldn't leave the lines all sketchy. Damn my OCD!
Well anyway, enjoy some overdue drawing from Aachi. I may shade this later.
