Muddy Rice Field Ghost
Long ago, somewhere west of where Tokyo is today, a poor but hard-working farmer managed to till a piece of uncultivated land into a productive rice field, and eked out a good living for himself. But alas the man took sick and died, and his son, a lazy and dishonest person unlike his father, spent his days drinking and left the fertile land neglected. Eventually the property was sold to a new owner.
But the old man's spirit could not rest, seeing his farm in ruins and his toil amounting to nothing, and one night his ghostly torso rose up out of the mud, crying for his field to be returned. From then on, every moonlit evening the dead farmer could be heard wailing in the distance, demanding the return of his property.

Here's my muddy Dorotabo action figure.I sculpted his decomposing head over a CTVT Reaper skull head with clay.For the body I used an Emce Torso,butt,and arms which I sculpted over with clay to give the appearance of caked on mudd and rotted flesh and bones.I glued tin-foil to the butt and sculpted clay on it to form the muddy earth he's rising out of.I painted the entire figure with acrylics and sealed with Mod-podge.
