The Kapre (tree giant) and the dwende (filipino counterpart of a goblin)

In filipino mythology, a Kapre is hairy, huge, and likes tobacco. He is silent and non aggressive often showing himself at a "balete" tree.

a goblin will always be a goblin, haha. They are little creatures who can provide good fortune or bad fate to humans.

done with PS, and my brand new...mouse.. im broke.. :iconsadnessplz:

This will be my 1st entry for Visual Arts contest
theme: Your Own Version/Design of Philippine's Local Mythical Creature

comments are always welcome :icononibeg:

would you be interested in this picture being the cover of an ebook by an American author? That author being me? If so, contact me at kelake2000@yahoo.com. And I am serious. I cannot afford to pay you (because I'm broke too, key word being author, ignore the "American" part of it. I live in the Philippines and know there is an erroneous belief here that American equals rich.... well, not this American). Anyway, you can go to Amazon and look me up, Kevin E Lake, and see my other works. I always use young artists or photographers that I either know, or whose work I find online, like yours, that I like, in a way to try to help them get their names and work circulated in other circles. Maybe we can get rich together. Think about it and email me. You'd get mentioned in the opening credits of the book and I'd put a link to your site so people could go there and see your other works.
