The Wendigo

The Wendigo is a demonic half-beast creature appearing in the legends of the Algonquian peoples […] The creature or spirit could either possess humans or be a monster that had physically transformed from a person. It is particularly associated with cannibalism. The Algonquian believed those who indulged in eating human flesh were at particular risk. {X}

Haven't had the time to create some personal art in a while.. Managed to do this between other artworks for clients :P

Inspired by the Hannibal TV series.

Awesome. I didn't know why Will was seeing that moose and moose-man. This explains a lot. And your artwork is amazing. :heart:

Thank you! Tho' I'm not sure the Wendigo is related to the Hannibal series, it may be or might just be a coicindence :) I just got to know about this story recently and though it related to the series, but I'm not sure if it was really inspired by it :P
I think the moose is just the remenants of the first crime scene haunting him/ a vivid nightmare - the stag that haunts him is the stag that the Boyle girl was impaled on, its the first mark of a murder from Hannibal Lecter, this haunts him, its a part of his empathic mind. The stag was partly the mechanism of the kill, it is a fundamental part of it, it reminds Will of the damage that was done because he couldn’t get to Garrett Jacob Hobbs quick enough and the beginning of the descent into the world and mind of a serial killer. The moose-man is just the nightmare becomming a little bit more clear - since the moose-man has Hannibals face :D…
