Still a have a few little details to complete on Shoki, but we started more outlining this time. An Oni getting vanquished (his ass kicked) falling down the thigh.
There will be one more demon on the back of the thigh and two more on the other thigh, four total. In Japanese, the word for four is "shi", which is also the word for death. Usually the number four can be considered unlucky, and I usually try to avoid any number of four in a Japanese composition...but on this one it is being purposely used to add the sinister effect of the Oni (they're trying to bring the death). His goal is a complete body suit, and we are both interested in including as much symbolism into every aspect of it that we can.
The wife "borrowed" my camera, so apologies for the crappy iPhone photos...
