(Music: Theodor Bastard – Darkness)

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.

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!!!! ))

Nice interpretation! Kind of reminds me of The Beast from Over the Garden Wall with the branch-like spines/antlers. Great work.

A wonderful illustration of the Algonquin mythos!!!!
It is this legend that influenced the origin of the counter-clockwise dance in traditional Pow-wow circles(a rare dance that focused on persarverance through harsh winters as you mentioned!)

Compelling work!!
BRAVO!!!!!

another variation of the legend, their spirits, demons that possess people who partake in cannibolism. a possessed person can only be killed with fire by them even then that just frees the demon to find a new host. evil creatures all around. Awesome work on this!
