Tang Concept 2 by Tazi-san Tang Concept 2 by Tazi-san
No, I haven't given up on this or the Genesis project. My life has just been going through some big transitions in recent months.

From my Caige graphic novel project [link]

Work work work . . . just HAD to draw something fun and Tang is one of those characters that just makes me go :iconkermityayplz:

I'm really glad I added him to the story. He fills in some major plot holes and adds some more humor to the story.

His species and design is kind of a nod to Sonic the Hedgehog since my anthro style evolved from doing Sonic fanart, so I have to give some props.

Tang is an MA teacher and taylors styles according to the strengths and weaknesses of different species. His particular style depends on speed and evasion since he's not a very big creature. Tael [link] later becomes one of his top students. He has a ball annoying those dear to him, but like his cousin Jude, he has a soft spot for kids and he tends to use the MA school to get them off the streets.

A big turnaround because he used to be a self-absorbed jerk and incorrigible showoff when he was younger (well he's still a bit of the latter).

He's from a pretty well-to-do and traditional Canturian family. Ever since his mother stopped MA, she spent more time on the family side-business: flowers . . . Canturians are obsessed with them.

And ironic since it's the near opposite in English.

I could never fault you for the quality of the drawing, but Tang's design is rather uninspired. I'm essentially looking at a nondescript anthro with spiky hair and a gi, with very little visual motifs to add to the design theme. He's a background character at best unless you develop his appearance further. If you're going for the martial arts approach, try looking at different Asian costumes for some inspiration. A Mao suit perhaps...?
