Wendigo (Monster 18)

The monster I painted today is called a wendigo. It is in the myths of the Algonquian people. One version of the myth states this scary monstrosity was once a human but because he tasted the flesh of another man, he was warped and twisted into this creature and now hunts and eats the living. It has described with ‘desiccated skin’ and ‘bones popping out of the flesh’.  A terrifying creature for sure. I want to give it a ‘undead’ look but not be gory.
