Japanese demons and other mystical creatures

Hey guys! From time to time we all lack fantasy. Today I’ve stumbled upon a great source of inspiration. It is called Obakemono. This web-site is dedicated mostly to Japanese demons and other mystical creatures.

Some of the images are traditional Japanese graphics and paintings, but most of them is a modern interpretation created most likely using vector art software. The Halloween is getting closer, so if you have not made any postcards or other artistic presents for your friends and family, check out Obakemono to get inspired! Each creature has it’s own description and legend. It’s really worthy to spend some time watching them.

Here are few sample designs:
