My Little Nuckelavee by LynxGriffin My Little Nuckelavee by LynxGriffin
:icontegu: coerced me into drawing this. The Nuckelavee is an Orkney fae with the combined body of half a human and a horse, fins or flippers for legs, and no skin. Therefore, all its muscles and veins are exposed. The horse part of the Nuckelavee typically only has one large eye, although sometimes the human part does, too.

The Nuckelavee remains invisible when underwater, but when it comes on land, it takes on this grotesque form and kills livestock, crops and your family with sickness, plagues, droughts and natural disasters.

So naturally, I had to be a horrible person and draw a My Little Pony version of it!

~PESTILENCE IS MAGIC!~

Christ alive... I come to this site looking for something that will give me nightmares and I find this? My friend was right, this is the WRONG place to look.

Has anyone seen that?

Actually, after the inclusion of changelings to the FiM world, the inclusion of the Nuckelavee would not be that farfetched! Kids would be terrified, but it would be awesome XD

I was wondering if anyone was gonna do this and was half-tempted to do one of my own. XD Hilarious to be beaten to it, though. Gotta love the one big eye and the toony musculature.

Out of curosity, though, what's the cutie mark supposed to be? Seaweed?
