31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 24 - Wendigo

The Wendigo are a cannibalistic spirit creature that can possess a human. They are from the Native American folklore of the Algonquian people and are said to be powerful supernatural beings. They are in some ways similar to modern day zombies in features. The Wendigo has a dead grey skin, sunken in eyes, skin tight to the bones and dry lips covered in blood and they smell of death . . . very much like a zombie.These guys are associated with the northern parts of North America frequently in Canada. Strangely there are other versions of the Wendigo that have the creature look like a Yeti type creature and if you see Marvel Comics version of the Wendigo it looks nothing like the traditional version and very much like the Yeti.

In my drawing I kept the Wendigo as I thought he might look but I gave him a yellow eye thinking he would look less human. The colors are Copic Markers and Prismacolor Markers.
