• Tappatio © *Diikae

Name: Tappatio
Sex: Male
Orientation: Bisexual
Age: 24 in Human years
Birthdate:July 9th
Alliance: Unknown
Mate: Fane
Children: None
Additional Information:
- Coins from all over the world hung from back legs. Make a constant ‘clink’
- Boots seamed with pearls, hooves painted with powdered turquoise
- Eight of Cups and Hermit cards are in his headscarf
- Rubies are inlaid into the skin on his face
- Blind in both eyes, both clouded over and have ‘rough’, non-spherical texture.
Personality: Due to his blindness, mixed with his ability to foresee the future, Tappatio has a very interesting, inventive perspective on life. When he speaks, his descriptions are very round-about and cryptic, as if in riddles. He is a very soft-spoken and gentle individual, having not a malicious bone in his body, although that sometimes makes him into a doormat. He is self conscious about many things, though he doesn’t share what those are. When scared, or rejected, Tappatio sometimes withdraws into his own unrealistic inner world, ignoring reality.
History: Tappatio doesn’t have a very interesting or exciting history. He was born blind, his eyes clouded over and useless, and so his mother focused her attention on his creative mind, and soon realised that he was able to have very accurate, though very cryptic visions of the future. He travels with the same band of Romani he was born into, and seems happy there with the others, although he is often excluded, for fear of hurting him or hearing some vision that isn’t particularly pleasant. You could call him the black sheep of the little band.

My inner detailhoar looooves his design. >8 I'm a sucker for designs that have a ton of little details to look at, and he definitely has this.

I especially like the tattered bits - you're awesome at drawing believably draped fabric - and the little...ear...hat thing. For lack of a better word for it. xD

Lol. xD Late comment is late, but still appreciated! Thank you. :3

He certainly does have a lot to look at. He's probably one of my most complicated designs, if not THE most.
Haha...ear-hat thing.

Expect more late comments. I've got a backlog of about 100 deviations to comment on/fav, and several of yours are in there. 8D;

I don't think any other pose could have expressed this character so perfectly.

Right away, without seeing the description my head just shouted GYPSY!

And he is beautiful.
Absolutely beautiful!

Thank you. I'm glad that you didn't have to read the description to know what he was. 8D Means I got the point across.

Too bad you're a 'lazy rper', whatever that means. xD I'm sure you could create something mindblowing for that contest if you had it in you.

There is so much I want to comment on... X3

He looks wonderful, wow I love that big Quarter horse ass. <3 Bays are so pretty, I can't believe some people consider them "not a flashy color"

Well this boy sure is flashy, I adore him <3

Diikae Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2008  Student Digital Artist
Thank you! :heart:
I do too. Bays are my favorite color aside from paint and seal brown (which is featured on a character of mine coming up soon in the reference roster). They're all about the same in love to me.
Greys and chestnuts are icky. D:

I'm glad you like him though!

MuteGator Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2008
X3 hehe, I have a flea bitten gray and used to have a chestnut pinto.

The pinto was cute... but I hated her body/the way she moved, the gray... well she has the cutest head and the longest wavy mane I have ever seen, So I don't mind the color much.

But I'm always stealing people's big bodied Quarter horse bays, out of all the horses I'm started.. over half were big bodied quarter horse bays. O_o'

I can't wait to see the next one. <3
