If you bought the Bones V "Fan Favorites" expansion, you probably expected the female rakshasa (#902) ... but didn't expect to get a male, too. Surprise! Pics and then words: Christine Van Patten (Rainbow Sculptor) sculpted them, from art by Izzy "Talin" Collier. Both have the creepy reversed hands with sharp claws, human-feline monstrous bodies, and big-cat heads. I painted his head as the expected tiger, but for variety I painted hers as a cheetah. (Indeed cheetahs are native not only to Africa but also to Iran/Persia and India, where nobility used to train them for hunting. But humans hunted cheetahs to extinction in India in the 1940s, and lately the Indian government has proposed reintroducing cheetahs into the wild.) Anyway, rakshasas are mythical fiends of the material world -- diabolical sybarites and hedonists all. These figures already have fancy outfits and jewelry sculpted on, so I made sure to paint the fabrics extra-fancy. Enjoy! - Derek
