That knocker looks happy
It wouldn’t be nearly as welcoming to customers if the knocker was mean and scary!
It’s official, I want a happy dragon door knocker for my own home
On another note, if Rao is home, he must be one heavy sleeper if he needs a door knocker that big instead of a doorbell… I’m excited to see this mysterious man in the coming pages
Every house should have a happy dragon knocker instead of a boring doorbell!
With a place that big, I imagine he’d need a big knocker that would carry some sound well.
Our mystery mechanic will be seen soon enough!
Alright. Can ANYONE tell me what sizes are those!? E-cups!?!
(And can they get bigger somehow? )
Now, now, we don’t want to be rude and ask a lady their sizes.
She’s certainly looks like she’s in the big girl ranges.
(Any larger and she’d have a harder time holding her big basket! )
Crazy theory: Rao is the junk-sculpture dragon, having suffered some horrific disfigurements in the past and gotten creative with the prosthetics, and is waiting for the best moment to surprise them.
I see you’re going with the slightly more dark take on the wizard of oz tin-man story for our dear mechanic.
More dark than a cursed axe that makes you chop off a part of your own body every time you use it?
That’s pretty darn dark!
I feel like she is going to break the door
Who, Mimi? She’s a tough lady , but not that tough! That’s a pretty solid door. But you can never truly know the full strength of a tanuki girl on a mission I suppose.
I have this silly idea now that the knocker IS Rao and he’s just going to surprise them by roaring when she grabs the ring.
I guess this is the point of the story where Matt and Mimi are visited by 3 ghost!
Rao being not only a master mechanic but a master of disguise would be surprising!
I didn’t notice the tire belly rings before, they’re cute (as is the knocker).
I appreciate how you’ve made the different metals look. The dragon has light and patchy steel, it looks easier to use for sculpting and may even be hollow inside, while the knocker has a dark and rough cast iron look, you can definitely tell how solid and heavy it is.
Speaking of knockers, nice way Mimi is carrying the basket, really brings out her … eyes.
(Also, don’t know if I mentioned this before but I like that leaf design of what I assume is the uniform from Mimi’s university. Really the whole thing with the puffy shoulders, lace around the buttons and neck scarf is cute as hell)
Leave it to a master mechanic like Rao to make creative and cute use out of old tires!
We wanted this dragon sculpture to look worn and rusted to show that it was made of scrapes of various metals that Rao might have used to make it. Glad the door knocker texture and colors gave off that cast iron look we wanted. You’re going to need metal that’s big and heavy as a door knocker to get Rao’s attention in a huge house like that I can imagine!
Ah, yes. That big basket really brings out Mimi’s big…scarf!
Glad you noticed Mimi’s leaf design! It’s more of a reference to the folk lore of Tanuki using leaves as part of their illusions and trickery. Mimi definitely has the cute school girl look going for her, which makes sense since she’s a college gal. That outfit aesthetic of puffy shoulders, vest top, lace, etc. is a personal fave of mine! Glad you also think so Evil Tree!
