Rokurokubi are demons that take on the form of normal humans during the day, but after nightfall they reveal their true forms, extending their necks to great lengths. They typically disguise themselves as women, though there have been a few depictions of male rokurokubi. These creatures fall into two types: The more docile group that attempts to coexist with normal people, and the hostile individuals that prey on humans (usually unsuspecting lovers) while they are asleep. Malicious rokurokubi have the ability to completely detach their heads from their person. Because of this, a method to dispatch of these demons is to destroy their bodies while the separated head is feasting elsewhere.

P.E.D. Revisited!

During a brief period of free time from the comics class, I was goofing around with the previously-posted spoiled food creature. I wanted P.E.D. (Past Expiration Date) to appear more menacing, despite its refrigerator-compatible scale, and I added a couple of shadows to make the rotten food seem a bit further past their last known point of edibility. The implication of a ground plane was included in the upgrade package, and I just added lightning bolts because they're...cool.

Comic Class Characters Covered!

For the past week, I have been assisting my friend Cody in teaching the young minds of the future about the awesome-ness that is comics. The class is also working on characters for an localized version of the Fistacuffs tournament, in which Cody and I will be providing "boss characters" My pedagogical (props to JP for the vocab!) cohort's character leans more towards the bloody, baby-powered side of things, while I decided to go for a combatant that hits a little closer to home. Imagine some of your basic nutritional needs not being met because your fundamental breakfast foods turned on you, and I'm not just talking about shelf life.

While we're now properly segued to the subject of characters floating in space, I feel I should share this comic that illustrates the brain-storming process of some of the young cartoonists:

It's Not A Part Of My Series...

...but I thought I'd post something while I'm working on the other demon drawings.
