Sootsprite by HikariMichi Sootsprite by HikariMichi
This is a really old picture, that I found, liked and decided to finish. If you didn't catch that, this is a sootsprite ("Susuwatari"). It appears in Hayao Miyazaki's films My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away. (Those are two of my favourite films <3)
And those sootsprites are so cute, that I wanted to draw one. And here it is.
Simple, but soft and cute. :heart:

Who would win in a fight? A Sootsprite or a Kodama? 
Hmm.... I guess it might depend on numbers... What do you think?

Here's our Kodama in the Princess Mononoke fan film,

Hmm … Kodama are more compact … So it would be easier for them to "cause physical damage", but then again Sootsprites can fly and would have an advantage because they could just fly away if they were bothered. Also they most likely wouldn't get seriously hurt because of their softness …
So I would say a Sootsprite, but it depends on how intelligent they are.

Looks awesome! :wow:

Yup, "susuwatari" in Japanese and "sotspridare" in Swedish
