Wendigo - CGhub Draw Jam by DarkMechanic Wendigo - CGhub Draw Jam by DarkMechanic
Entry for this months draw jam over on CGHub, if you guys haven't tried it, I recommend it, 2 weeks to make an illustration based on a pre-decided topic. Its good to do something creative, work on the composition and interpretation of an idea. Although usually, a professional digital artist just comes in on the last day, does something half-related, and wins the jam. But for those that want to learn and measure themselves, its good!

Edit - A Wendigo is a native american demon/boogie-man devised to scare people out of cannibalism when food was scarce (anyone who ate human flesh would turn into a Wendigo). For the challenge, I decided to interpret it not as a physical monster per-se, but maybe a vision of warning, or a hallucinogenic dream one would have on the brink of death/starvation. Suicide was the only option when faced with the choice of eating your own kind, hence the knife before the apparition.

Each time I see this drawing, I think of Adventure Time ^^ Not sure if it's the style or the desolated/unreal ambiance...
