Maneki by Kawiku Maneki by Kawiku
My original character Maneki, inspired from a maneki-neko and a koi fish. Some may remember seeing him from my previous account. I did some very minor changes to his design. I'm gonna try to draw more pictures of my OCs since sometimes people wanted to draw me fanarts or I wanted to do art trades or commissions and I never really had anything to show to people >.>;

kawiku doesnt own Maneki's. thats just Kawiku's CHARACTER.

you say to calm down when all i did was post a link. that's pretty calm. the person's character looked similar to kawiku's.
so you see, im just inking kawiku the character so she may handle it if she believes it resembles her character too much.

whoops i just realize how rude i sounded //sobbu
but...
i think it resembles almost any maneki neko character and statue ever

there are a lot of different maneki's. white-black-orange, black-white-yellow, etc etc etc

sure it may look similar..but kawiku doesnt own the species 

im from japan..i remember how the maneki neko statues were EVERYWHERE. in stores, in streets, in houses, yupyup

that's not what i meant and i know kawiku doesnt own the species. i mean the pattern itself looks very close to her's but i know people cant own patterns so i just decided to link it so kawiku, as i said before, can deal with it if she has any problem with onigiri's design.
i cannot find a maneki in any of those pictures with the same pattern as maneki (the character) and onigiri. i would explain why i say this but i cant really word it correctly, but im sure you get the idea.

i think the maneki looks like any other maneki neko OC in general


im sure if anyone makes a maneki neko character, it might "accidentally" look similar to kawiku's because the species is not owned by kawaiku and the general idea of a mostly white calico or black and white cat design can only go so far to even resemble the japanese ornament

those three are way different pattern wise. anyways not to be rude but im not sure why you keep replying to me when i have stated my reason as to linking kawiku the character
they're very similar, yet different, so it's hard to tell if it was an intended copy or not. so once again, i just linked it for kawiku to decide to either ignore it if she's completely fine with it or to say something if not.

yeahh...but i felt like i should defend the young artists work for maneki's are cute in real life and as characters
even is kawiku decides to do something or not, i wanted to at least say something to users who might bash the other user for just this coincidental mistake or something

just because someone has a maneki neko character doesnt mean they are trying to copy kawiku


i felt like the art from the other user doesnt need too much attention because it wasnt a directly copied character and is part of something already done ;w;'

Omg Kawiko, I know what your icon is supposed to look like, but it's actually glitching right now, other than the glitch drawn in. The bottom half is gone and the top half is flashing! XD

He is vety cute and creative, I've never really seen someone combine a cat and some traits of a koi fish before. And I love how you did the design just blends in a way.
