Yokai Girl: "Torn Tail -Osaki-"

OK, I mentioned before that I wanted to start exploring the world of female yokai. Yokai are traditional Japanese monsters in folklore. They are very interesting because each one is different and has different characteristics. I am also still under the influence of my childhood obsession with Ninjasentai Kakuranger, which featured a new badguy yokai each episode! So enthralling!

Haha, here's their version of the fox woman with nine tails, kyuubi no kitsune!


And here is a ukiyo-e depicting one. It makes more sense than the Kakuranger version, for sure. XD


Here's a Chinese version.


Haha. And now, here's my version of the infamous fox-girl below. This was actually a commission piece for a lovely fellow in Texas. I can't wait to portray some other female yokai!
