Dagway sa Katigulangan Bisaya
(The Face of feudal Visayan)

The Face tattoo is only restricted for those Elite Warriors of Feudal Visayas, according to Book Barangay sixteenth-century philippine culture and society by William Henry Scott, ‘Bangut’ is what they called the face-tattoo, other Visayan language probably? had a different term for the face-tattoo, the design which mimics a crocodiles jaw is called ‘langi’ it also mentioned about a beak design, In Pigafettas journal he mentioned that Rajah Humanbon of Cebu had a flame-like design tattoo on his face.

“The Red head-gear or Pudong/Purong is what they called “Magalong”, it signifies the most valiant warrior in Feudal Visayas.”

Si’Tukugu the Brave and Si’Manuku, Spirit of the Hills pass

Manuku design is inspired by Ashti work, since I don’t know how to draw a cute pikachu 😛

Tukugu design is inspired by the Visayan Lord customs, his carrying a Talibong sword from Leyte or Samar? I’m not sure. the tattoo design is inspired by the Bisayas Illustration on The Boxer codex manuscript, I made his teeth white since he hates to chew on betel nuts, he only eats fish  😛

Backstory:

Manuku is a Ancestral spirit Tarsier from the island of the hills, he found Tukugu in the ravaged village attacked by raiders from the other island, since then Manuku took care of Tukugu as he grew up, Manuku teaches Tukugu how to survive and to fight, Tukugu then left the Island of the hills with Manuku to look for the sacred artifacts pass down by Tukugu’s ancestral tribe that has been stolen by the raiders, along the way Tukugu met some other people from other places, then later joined Tukugu and Manuku for his adventure, finding the lost sacred atrifacts (to be continued)
