Daily Deviation

Given 2012-02-12
Kuchisake-onna, gorgeously dynamic illustration by ~DavidGaillet. The incredible lighting really gives the character a tangible weight and volume.

Oh kuchisake onna. I became obsessed with Japanese urban legends several summers ago. And have been in love with them ever since although I think I've gone through most of the more famous ones. I basically know the major ones by heart. So I have a pretty good chance of surviving an encounter with her. But for people who don't know here's how to survive. She usually attacks you by asking you am I pretty. if you say yes she'll remove her surgical mask and slice your face like hers. If you say no she'll straight up kill you. if you say am i pretty she'll stop to think about it and you can runaway. You can also say I have prior engagements to get to and she will politely excuse herself.

Creepy legend that apparently became real in the 70s.

This is uttery beautiful, it's so dynamic and feels so real. The lighting really adds dimension to her while the blade and the dress really pays homage to the origins of the story. Fantastic work mate, keep it up.

I love this version of Kuchisake-Onna, this has helped inspire my halloween costume for this year :D

Interesting:  the water is perfectly still, just a hint of ripple...  Yet the character is all wavy and windy.  creates a nice other-world-ey feel...  Excellent.
