Ohaguro-bettari is a type of Yokai in japanese folklore. She tricks men into believing she was a beautiful young woman, dressing in fine clothing and turning her featureless face away until they approach her:

Another quick drawing of her:
A scene from Gantz, a series which features quite a few Yokai. Also walking talking statues and things that look like they escaped from Halflife. Man I love that comic.
These two appeared only for half a chapter but they seemed fun to hang out with. Until they decided humans are disgusting and put an end to their short-lived friendship to the suit-guys. ( I won't use the v-word):
And something else in progress. Kappa are river-imps who drag the unsuspecting into the water. You can trick them by bowing to them, making them spill the water in the bowl-shaped depression in their heads and losing all their power when they return the bow.
Their favourite food are cucumbers and human entrails.
Just a 20-minute sketch, will finish it as soon as I feel like it:
