Narigama

It’s the fortune telling Tsukumogami Yokai once again. Its alternatively called Narikama. Although it looks like a hairy beast wearing a huge hat, it’s a cauldron or a kettle that gain sentience through antiquation. For clarity, its a kettle that makes a ringing sound when water is boiled, the ringing sounds are said to tell fortunes. Somehow it retains this ability once transformed. Here it’s currently preparing some Ema, wooden plaques where visitors would write their wishes, and from those, it can read one’s fortunes.

It was supposed to be a rare home doodle, but I liked it too much and couldnt stop adding things. I may have given it too much musculature on the torso area. Also I loved adding a couple of Yokai cameos among the Ema. I’d understand why visitors would like an Amabie on their Ema, but Shou? I don’t know, maybe he fluffs up futons after he scares everyone out of a house.
