Day 4 of Drawlloween is Mothman! I would say he's one of my favorite cryptids, but pretty much all cryptids are my favorite!

Growing up in Virginia, not too far from where he was first seen, I heard plenty of stories of this harbinger of doom. Though I never really thought he was evil, just a sort of messenger. Maybe he scared people so much because he's from another world, and just doesn't know how to approach humans

I drew him enjoying some candy discarded by a trick-or-treater, because of course Mothman loves Halloween candy!

7"x7" Drawn in ink, and painted with watercolor and Photoshop

This Art piece of the Mothman is very unique and very fitting to the creature. It was as if the Mothman was an idea from either Edger Allan Poe or H.P Lovecraft. I love it.

That's one of my favorite legends, and also paranormal stories, in USA.
