31 Monsters in 31 Days: Day 10 Kelpie

Kelpie - Copyright © 2012 Kevin P. Johnson

The Kelpie is a Scottish shape shifter that is most often found in horse form and lives and hunts in the rivers around Scotland. the Kelpie usually has a human form that it will use to attract suitors. When a Kelpie catches a human they drag it into the river and eat the victims but usually will leave only a heart or liver behind. In it's horse form the Kelpie gets its victim to climb on its back to ride it and when they do it becomes sticky and they can not get off of the horse as it drags them to their fate. The Kelpie is said to come in three colors black, white and green and they are said to always have dripping wet hair even if they are in human form on land.

The drawing is done with Sharpie on 11" x 14" Bristol Board and colored with Adobe Photoshop.

Wet horses are for suckas,
