Kapre

A kapre is a giant Filipino mythical creature that lives on a tree. Kapres are considered demons, but they are genuinely known for their harmless nature (at least that’s what I’ve heard). They are often characterized as hippie bearded male smokers; they are famous for being giant cigar smoking bum men. Have never really heard stories about kapres of the opposite sex. Thus, I drew this.
My very own adaptation of a female kapre.

Ms. Amnie, No problem:)

Juca, Thank you! I appreciate a compliment from such a wonderful artist. Actually, A kapre looks more of a human than a tree. I just think they'd be more whimsical and interesting if they would look like this. Haha
