Re: Links for Creature References

Awesome! descriptions of creatures are the best because they can evoke some good creative energies and imaginative artworks....also what has got me interested is the massive list of japanese demons here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...res_from_Japan

And Japanese demon creatures just seem so inspiring to try and draw....
