Kintaro by xiaobaosg Kintaro by xiaobaosg
Jisuk's Dark fairy tale deck project

Read [link] for more.

Kintaro (金太郎 often translated as "Golden Boy") is a folk hero from Japanese folklore. A child of superhuman strength, he was active and indefatigable, plump and ruddy, wearing only a bib with the Chinese character for "gold" (金 ).

Several tales tell of Kintaro's adventures, fighting monsters and demons, beating bears in sumo wrestling, and battling a giant carp. Here's a bloody version of the carp being slaughtered into half. haha.

The original Kintaro is a pretty cool character, but I've seen some pretty lame knockoffs(Kinta from Power Instincts). I really like how you drew Kintaro though. And since I'm doing a character based off of Kintaro soon, I thought I would favorite this, because you did great work on making him look good.

I LOVE it! I did unfortunately think he was a beefy kick ass girl when I first took a gander. If you hadn't made the golden boy notation I would have posted something about how SHE IS SO AWESOME. :)

I guess my love for tough girls that kick butt converted him into a her. The color on this one is great to... of course I almost always like what you post up here.

lol ok.... now that I look closer (after making him my desktop image for the day) there is no doubt that he is a boy. Are there any strong women in Japanese folklore that you can recommend I look up?

the actual expression on his face is really accurate to his character.
the colors, the textures and the little details you work in just make this even more amazing.
