Shishi Aeon - Black and white by nachtwulf Shishi Aeon - Black and white by nachtwulf
The shishi, or lion-dog, is a traditional guardian of temples and shrines in Japan. I figured it'd make a good Aeon idea (after all, Yojimbo's dog Daigoro is based on one...) . There'll be a color version after awhile.... just wanted to post something since I hadn't for awhile.

I know you submitted this back in '03, but If possible, do you mind if I submit a colored version of this drawing?

Sweet...

However...his body arrangements you created for him make him look more for a Anthropomorph than a standard canine/dragon...though, of course his head/neck would have to be 'stretched/manipulated' to create the humanoid form completely...

Your Final Fantasy X fanwork is jaw-droppingly amazing... I am particularly fond of Yojimbo's little dog, and a Diagoro-based Aeon is a wonderful idea! :) (Smile) ---must +fav as well---

Looks like katrina has been watching austin powers again. Anyway, I've just completed FFX (I used the AP -> Overdrive trick and so the final boss was WAY too easy) and I have to admit it was one excellent game. The beggning wasn't too great. All the characters and mosnters and everything is so well done and have so much imagination behind them. You really do well showing FFX.
