Bells sound in the wood
darkness mist a red ribbon is dancing
enchanted songs of a Yokai

Day 7: Enchanted – Yokai
Double Challenge combined prompts #Drawlloweentober2019
Today drawing is inspired by the Japanese Mythology and Folklore “Yōkai (妖怪, ghost, phantom, strange apparition) are a class of supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons in Japanese folklore. The word yōkai is made up of the kanji for “bewitching; attractive; calamity” and “spectre; apparition; mystery; suspicious” (source WikipediA)
The combination of the two prompts Enchanted and Yokai is great together! I hope you love my “Kiko the Enchanted Yokai” Her name is Kiko and she is very mysterious! I also wrote an Haiku for this drawing!
