002 - sketch
continuing with the mythology and folklore theme, this time something from japanese folk tales. they have some of the coolest creatures in them, this one is a kappa character i'm maybe developing for something (which is why he's holding a feather - part of something bigger). kappa are frog/turtle-like water-sprites that have water-filled craters on the tops of their heads and if all the water is spilled, they are seriously weakened or might even die. they also eat children and cucumbers. awesome. this one is much more anthropomorphized than regular kappa, but he fits into the probable story line better that way. this is in the process of being inked in photoshop.
