Was going for a “Monsters Inc. meets Japanese mythology” illustration with this one. I really tried to take my time with it. Hope you enjoy it! :)

(Edited to fix some minor things!)

I'm always in awe of your ability to use lighting in composition; every single character's expression/pose is perfectly framed by the light, and it takes just that extra second to follow their line of sight to the little girl...meaning the viewer is almost as surprised as they are! Really, really beautiful work. :love:

I believe I see a Tengu (The bird), a Kappa(The turtle-thing with the bowl/plate on the head), a Tanuki (The raccoon), and an Oni (The red ogre-like guy.) - The large and most visible beast isn't one I know, though.

Monsters Inc. was definitely the first thing I thought of seeing the expressions of everyone except the child. Hey but a customer is a customer none the less. :) (Smile)

The absurdity of the situation, the feeling there. Are they going to obey it or not? Probably. Hmm.
