This was done for the Cryptid in July challenge on Twitter. It was first posted on July 17, 2020.
The Ningen's tale started in Japanese folklore, and the word means "human." It's said to live in the frigid, subantarctic oceans, and seen by few. It's had several sightings reported on the, um, reputable forum 2channel; people describe it as very pale, with two long arms and a humanoid face.
I tried a different process for this one (doing the lineart toward the end instead of in the beginning), and it took me forever. I learned a lot, but probably won't do it again anytime soon.
Fanart, horror pieces, trauma/emotional processing. Older posts are backdated, so that newest pieces appear first.
