So far my learning process has been observing art I like, whether it’s the style, colour, or poses used, and trying to incorporate them into my own works.
Today’s experiment involved a palette with few colours, thick lines and a black and white background. I really enjoyed how it turned out and will probably play with and evolve this style more.
Kuchisake-onna (“Slit-Mouthed Woman”)
Wearing a surgical mask, the Kuchisake-onna approaches children and asks them if they think she is beautiful. If they say no, she kills them with her scissors. If they say yes, she removes the mask and says, “How about now?” If they still say yes, she will slit their mouths like her.
The way to escape her is to tell her she is only so-so, it will confuse her and give the victim time to escape.
