About The Nuppeppo:
The Yokai Known as a Nuppeppo is a genderless walking lump of decaying flesh with stumpy short arms and legs,with the hint of a face in the folds of fat,and a very pungent body odor(just like the rotting flesh it is). It is estimated to reach up to 1.5m in height. The Nuppeppo is said to be passive and unaggressive.It is also said that those who eat the flesh of a Nuppeppo shall have eternal youth. The Nuppeppo is said to aimlessly wander the deserted streets of villages, towns and cities, often at night towards the year-end, or graveyards or abandoned temples. The Nuppeppo is also sometimes described as a "Frankenstein"of bits of rotting flesh. The Nuppeppo has made many appearances in several films, including the classic yokai monsters trilogy made in the late 60's. This horrible creature also appears in the Wii game Oboro Muramasa Youtouden (Muramasa: the Demon Blade) as a fairly inoffensive but thoroughly unpleasant random encounter. Also, in the Wii game Okami, inside a sunken ghost ship, there is a creature that resembles the Nuppeppo.

The face is spot on to all the illustrations of this Yokai that I've seen, well done. Chubby/fat characters aren't easy to do, especially articulated ones.

Thanks Patraw,this time I used a pic from Shigeru Mizuki to guide me(for 001 I used an old scroll illustration from an 18th centuary artist as the model).
