Futakuchi-Onna Picture

My version of the japanese Futakuchi-Onna, we had to do a creepy sort of mythic creature for a coloring book project in my fundamentals of design class.

for those of you who do not know, a Futakuchi-Onna is a mythic demon wife. Back in the day the men used to prize women who ate sparingly. And eventually suspicion would arise as to how these women actually got sustenance.
