Inktober Day 4: Yokai Kokeshi Dolls

inktober day 4 upload

Today’s Inktober illustration is just something simple since I didn’t have much time to draw today! I drew a kitsune character and a nekomata character in the style of kokeshi dolls. Its fun to use the brush pen! I may consider expanding on this idea someday by making a whole line up of yokai dolls!

Japanese Masks pattern

This is a sample of a pattern I made themed on Japanese masks. The fox-like mask is known as the Kitsune, the red horned mask is an Oni (Japanese ogre or demon), the lady like one is known as Noh, the one with the silly expression is known as Hyottoko and the red long nosed one is called the Tengu.

Kit-kun

This is Kit-kun, a character I designed based of a Japanese mythical creature called a Kitsune (a fox that can have up to 9 tails). This was originally going to be a soft toy idea but I feel I have the insufficient skills to make it, so I made it a digital illustration instead! The textures I re-created digitally were originally going to be the different tails the fox was going to have for the plush (except the blue checkered pattern which was just going to be denim).
