Working on some holiday goodies for a shop update later this month. ⭐🍬🌲 In the mean time, enjoy this much fancier photo of my #mabsdrawlloweenclub2019 piece for #yokai and #toad. He's still up for adoption in my shop. Link in bio. 🖤
▫️
He is, Hiki (derived from the Japanese word for toad), the familiar of a line of very powerful swamp witches. He can shape shift, presenting as a toad, a small child, and his demon spirit shape. He prefers to feed on carrion insects.  He is not an evil entity per se, but cares little for the affairs or lives of humans. Centuries ago, before he became bound to the swamp witches, he would use his child shape to lure unsuspecting travellers deep into the swamp, where they would become lost, just to reap the insect product of their demise. Now he is mostly satisfied with what carrion eaters the witches can conjure for him and spends his days as a messenger to other yokai and leading travellers who seek magical remedy to his masters' hut. But, be wary in the swamp. Hiki is only *mostly* satisfied with his conjured meals...

For added fun read about Waira and Takiyasha Hime for tales of real toad yokai! .
