Character Concept Sketch: Kitsu Naginata

Kitsu Nagina
Fun Fact about Kitsu: He’s not actually blind. While he lost his standard eyesight, he gained the ability to see in “Aura Vision” permanently. Because of this, his senses are heightened even more, and he’s become possibly an even deadlier gunner than Luke. I haven’t drawn him in a long time, so I wanted to give his design a bit of a rehash. He still has his classic fur-trimmed collar, but instead of several hair “appendages”, I cut it down to one to make him resemble his mother a bit more. This sketch is a bit messy, though, and I might do a few more gloss-overs to refine his design before he appears in the next page of Rose for Shurinai.
