The Yokai Bar


Goddammit Jacob! Would it kill you to find a woman your own size!?

Anyway, the big blue woman is an oni, and the friendly looking racoon dog at the end is a tanuki, a type of yōkai that is really fond of teabagging people, sometimes to death. Don't believe me? http://b-knox.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/kagee_tanuki_2.jpg http://www.pinktentacle.com/images/kuniyoshi_tanuki_141.jpg :XD:

Oh Japan. Your mythical creatures are weird as hell, but so much fun to draw. :XD:

I'm quite disappointed with the representation of angels here. :(
Where are the Ophanim? The Cherubim? Thrones?
Jewish mythology and the more exotic bits of Christianity have some very interesting stuff.

Tanuki have giant testicles mostly because actual raccoon dogs have giant balls, as seen in this (poorly) taxidermied specimen. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/65/Taxidermy_of_Raccoon_Dog-Morinji,_Tatebayashi,_Gunma.JPG

Because tanuki are the most fantastic mythological animal of all time.
