Aki aka Freak on a Leash Picture

Originally a Sketch Theatre competition I submitted for a while back, I thought I'd color it up.

The concept was Freak on a Leash; I simply used an idea from a comic project I'm working on which features a lot of Japanese mythological beings - this big here being Aki: A large grotesque humanoid. I like the idea of having a lot the unfamiliar creatures of Japanese mythology located on the ancient islands where locals will use Aki as a soul eating monster who's always jolly, but very, very lazy. The local peasants will push/pull Aki to the ruins of the Nue in order to prevent the creature from causing chaos upon them.
