Meet Koh, the honey blonde tanuki! She will often pose as a false geisha or “lady of the evening” in order to steal money, food or trinkets, and escapes by using her powers of transformation which leaves victims bewildered.

You named her after the spirit from Avatar who steals faces?

She was not named after the character specifically.

Perfect blend of human and animal characteristics. The geisha makeup really works on her face, she's beautiful ^^.

The trickster lady with the illusion-power. You did a wonderful art again. Tanuki survive by their wits and cunning. But other than that, the color tones are well chosen; various grades of brown, contrasted by hints of green, and blue, held together with the red. 
The face is also wonderful. Reminds me strongly of Kabuki.

Yes I agree with you that her art is Amazingly Beautiful. And her Masterpieces would be on par with those of any of the Master Artists of Japan, both past and current.

Thank you very much.
I do love her works because they have the freshness about them which draws from the past (and the folklore), but is firmly grounded in the present.

You're Welcome and I love reading all the old Japanese folklore, Myths and Legends.

Thank you ^^
I chose the color scheme because tanuki seem more earthy to me (and also to offset the already selected color schemes of my current character line up.)
