Here's a small series of Yokai illustrations. Yokai are Japanese demon/spirits, and all of these are based on real folklore.

Rokuro-Kubi: a woman who's neck uncontrollably stretches.




Hayakume: a Yokai who guards temples from vandals and thieves. If he sees a thief, one of his eyes flies off and attatches itself to the theif.



Dorotabo: A dead farmer who resembles a rotting corpse and haunts his abused land.
