For anyone willing to know:

The Onmoraki is a creature reported in both Chinese and Japanese texts: a monster resembling a black crane, conjured from the souls of freshly-dead corpses. It basically serves as a "bogeyman" for priests: if one is caught sleeping in the sermon hall, it'll appear and scold them while flapping its wings; and if a priest neglects to read their sutra, it'll start chanting the degeneration sutra. Hence why it's holding a scroll in its beak.

No problem. Incidentally, while it's not as good as the one above, I did my own rendition of the creature [link]

I love the skull in at the top of the screen, that's a really nice touch. The scroll is at a weird angle to how it's held in the beak.

I now wish you will draw a bear made of smoke.

Not only as a bigtime Smokey pun, but bears and smoke look awesome if done right, and together even better, and you most likely could pull it off right, Wen.
