Spirit King v.2.0 Picture

Second Balinese starter remake. Find the originals here: [link]

I actually took the time to look at images of the Barong, from Balinese myth, for reference this time. Most of them are costumes, true, but I at least found a few that depict the creature's appearance from artwork, such as this one: [link]
The Lion Barong is the most common and well known form, which is why I also based the earlier stages off of cats in general. I know most Indonesian cats have short hair because of the heat and all, but I chose the long haired ones because their coats are the closest I could think of to the long "fur" on the Barong costume.
