Many of you decided that my Swamp demon looks like Wendigo, so I decided to show exactly how I imagine this creature :) (Smile) 

Wendigo is the curse of the North American continent, the monster who lives in the woods and feeds on human flesh. Wendigo can imitate the human voice and lure the victim into the forest, he moves very fast and can not be killed with a shot. Initially perceived as a symbol of insatiable hunger and a hungry winter, later began to serve as a warning against any excesses of human behavior.

Читал разные произведения где упоминается Вендиго, и для меня это очень жуткое существо. Вы нарисовали его очень хорошо!

What I really adore about this one, is that you made its back look like tree branches, plus it is surrounded by all those trees around which makes it look kind of spiritualy connected to the gloomy forest around and it makes it look like a master of its forest where it can control all the happenings and the creatures!! Powerful drawing.

Dude, don't criticize the artist. This is their interpretation of it.

A Wendigo isn’t a meme.

Maybe your not reading this correctly. Iren is calling this peoce of her art a Wendigo. It is her art, she names it. Not you. And if you want to know what normal people call a meme, go on reddit.

...NOW THISSSSSS---^ is A TRULY FRIGHTENING IMAGE....
       .... AND (TO ME) POSSIBLY THE PERFECT RENDERING OF (The) Wendigo [[ ...in its True Form? ]]
[[ This PERFECTLY captivating yet HORRIFIC rendering automatically made me recall this:
▫  youtu.be/yy5xlq5lKKE
 ^---- one of the scariest tracks from underrated, under-appreciated horror flick 'Ravenous' (( c.1999 ...one of my all-time favorites))

[[ Oh BTW: I got here from Google searching for visual / aesthetic inspirations for my resumed endeavor to produce workup/mockup concept art of....
... The Morrígan!!! (( <--- ALSO A FREAKING AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL -- maybe TRULY PERFECT -- PIECE!!!! ))
