Baek Baek Yeol Jeon (百魄列傳)
『The 100 Spirits Encyclopedia』
I started this project of art series
to help people to meet and know Korean Mythology, Tradition, Culture, and Image.
The god of disease
Duyeok is an old Korean word, meaning "smallpox".
In old Korea, people think that
infectious or serious illness is a god, a kind of evil spirits.
So Koreans called him "Ma-ma (Your highness)" or "Sonnim (The guest of honor)"
for wish him to calm himself down and leave.
My character has a masked dance dress on,
and Korean mask named "Tal" which is pockmarked.
I used this brush.
