hehe, so I took
's halloween art challenge and here is the result, Eliza the Manananggal.
Now, the Manananggal is a demonic monster from my country, the Philippines. She is a beautiful lady in the morning, but at night, her upper body sprouts wings and detaches itself from the lower body to feed. Her choice of food are unborn fetuses which she sucks out of sleeping pregnant women with a long, thin tongue. The only way to kill her is to find the lower half and put ash or smear garlic on it to prevent her from reattaching herself, killing her when the sun rises.
I took some artistic liberties with the design of my manananggal from the traditional image by letting her keep her spine when she detaches, almost making it her tail =3
