My latest work of youkai ladies series! Another japanese succubus to be added to the collection following the formers sisters. This is my depicting of Kiyohime, or in short a serpent lady. Here's some wiki attack or story behind this Kiyohime.

One day, a handsome visiting priest named Anchin fell in love with the beautiful Kiyohime, but after a time he overcame his passions and refrained from further meetings. Kiyohime became furious at the sudden change of heart and pursued him in rage. The priest and Kiyohime met at the edge of the Hidaka river, where the priest asked a boatman to help him to cross the river, but told him not to let her cross with his boat. When Kiyohime saw that Anchin was escaping her, she jumped into the river and started to swim after him. While swimming in the torrent of the Hidaka river, she transformed into a large serpent or dragon because of her rage. When Anchin saw her coming after him in her monstrous new form, he ran into the temple called D?j?-ji. He asked the priests of D?j?ji for help and they hid him under the bell of temple. However, the serpent smelled him hiding inside the bell and started to coil around it. She banged the bell loudly several times with her tail, then gave a great belch of fire that melted the bell, killing the priest.

Actually i like to add the temple's bell as it actually her signature imo. But its hard for me to draw a good composition using the bell. So here it is!
