Japanese monsters & legends – Day 25 Kuchikase Onna

18 Jun

Friday was Kuchikase Onna day!! \ º D º / (sorry for the delay)

Kuchikase Onna 口裂け女 –story here

Actually this time you have to choose between Kuchikase Onna or Futakuchi Onna, and I choose the first one because I like more the story n__n

I think she like the Japanese version of the Vanishing hitchhiker but instead of finding her in the road, she could be anywhere. Also she is not as nice as our gosht because no mater what answer you give to her she is gonna cut your moth Ó ~ Ò !!

It’s suposed to be an scary gosht but I don’t know why I can NOT find the way to draw something scary >__< every time I try I only came up with cute things = c = ~sigh

Also I have another sketch of Kuchikase Onna, this one I wanted to draw her as the typical profile pictures of girls, with duck mouth and upside angle… like saying “I’m pretty?” XD
