The Man-Eating Portrait (人食い肖像画 Hito-kui Shōzō-ga) is the physical incarnation of the emotions of an artist that appeared in the 1996 anime. It is neither yōkai nor a human spirit according to Medama-Oyaji, however the artist believes that it is his deceased mother, and thinks that feeding it with human blood and yōkai energy would revive her.
It mainly has two forms besides mimicking a target, one is the fluid-like form and the other is a shadow-like, human-shaped figure.
It became an entity when he used his own blood to draw his mother's portrait.
