Thanx!! And thanx for the advice,I think I will make another Kappa Custom(Kappa 2) soon.Most of the Kappa I have seen have a small shell,but I think a larger shell would actually look cool.

Kappa are amongst my most favorite Japanese mythological monsters--I remember I did a rather large segment on them for a presentation in mythology class in college. I love the head sculpt, but I think the shell needs to be larger and more defined. He needs a cucumber accessory too, and maybe a removable arm (from the classic tale of how the Japanese learned to set broken bones). :P
