I just finished the build up and paint on this piece this afternoon. Kit is 1/6 scale and was an absolute blast to paint. Had a few areas to deal with as far as putty, but nothing that couldn't be overcome. Hope you all like it. Comments welcome. "Q"

Very interesting figure!
I really like your choice of colors and color transitions. You've managed to paint feathers perfectly!

Congratulations. This is really nice piece!

From the website http://www.karasu-tengu.com/index-english.html

The japanese word Karasu means raven, crow or simply black bird, indicated just group of ravenbirds.

Tengu himself are not a divinity but also a mystic goblin, half man, half bird, lives in deep forests - like elves or trolls. They are excellent masters of martial arts and in legends they were described as transmitter of budo arts to the man.

Thanks, "Q"
