This piece is based on the scary theory that Totoro is the God of Death (Shinigami) and this interpretation is much closer to my taste 👻

It doesn't matter the reality, I'll always find Totoro as the biggest most cuddly creature I can find.

Never heard that theory (I hardly remember Totoro tho) but it certainly is fitting in your style when rendered with that concept! He certainly looks resemblant to a Shinigami, I also love the way you drew the trees in such a creepy gnarled way to twist around the moon rather than block it out. Very well done!

It works pretty well with the start of the film, when the mother's reassuring the daughters that she loves ghosts and can't wait to come live with them.

If the the embodiment of human mortality ends up looking like Totoro, then, that may be a comfort in one's final moments.
