Inside Kamaitachi the Sickle Weasel.


According to Japanese mythology, a sickle weasel is a Yokai which appears around dust devils. They have elongated nails in which they use to cut people with.


Background story:

Generally found throughout Crooked Trawl and the southern side of Valley of Fire, Sickle Weasels are mischievous and conniving creatures. They won't hesitate to attack those who carry any sort of valuable.


Although a sickle weasel isn't really portrayed as any kind of colour, I decided to create him in a light brown colour inspiring from the colour of dust devils. I decided to give Kamaitachi full red eyes; I thought it added a little bit of an extra devilish attribute. Again my trademark black eye tufts draw you into his eyes, while the white highlighting brings the eyes out.


This guy will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop this Friday AEST. Alternatively you can check me out on my social media pages below.
