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 >.>;

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.
