A Kappa


I’m giving some digital water color brushes a spin. I’ll try it on something simple like this super popular Yokai. I don’t know if they can actually create bubbles like that, but I think it looked cute. 

So, tell me again how Kappa, a terrifying river spirit that can murder a person through their fart hole, can be the most popular and cutest Yokai in popular media? Ok, they’re not always murderous. They can be nice sometimes, they have a vast knowledge of curatives and are willing to teach humans without hesitation, that is if you met the nice ones or if you have a bunch of cucumbers to share. Just in case someone runs into the “murder-you-in-the-business-end,” crazy ones, just give them a polite bow. This causes them to reciprocate the gesture, spill the water from their head and incapacitate them. Yeah!

Pardon the sudden style shift, I needed some rest. The past week felt like a bazillion mallets pummeled the fiber of my very being. I’m a little burnt out. I may need to make some crude comfort doodles.

Cute looking Kappa design here mate, looks great. have to to say though, took me a sec to see those Cucumbers, thought there were lillypads lol.

Wow, magnificent coloring man... seriously.
For a moment I tought that it wasn't made on a PC.

You really like the monster like design of the Yokais, you do?
Then, why not creating one by yourself? Your will to write so much about this Kappa made me think that you could be a good character/creature designer!

Just think about it. Even just cruel doodles can become something awesome you know?

Hope to see something creative from you in the future. Your style would sure make it charming, even if is simple like Kirby!

Also, even if this Kappa is adorable, I'm still scared of them... sorry...

Thank you and no worries I do make my own monsters from time to time, it's kinda hard to write descriptions without making them too OP. I drew Yokai, because their designs, origins and stories are fun :}

This is one cute Kappa
