A rendition to a mythical creature that actually came by Chile once.

It's the middle of a dark, stormy night, and a farmer has nearly finished his rounds for the day . He's about to call it a night when he hears a hellish roar that sets a murder of crows flying and cackling nearby. The farmer grabs a flashlight and set out to find the source of the disturbance.

Barely five minutes in, he spots two shadowy mounds in the ground, so he sheds some light into them. One is a freshly slaughtered sheep, the other a strange animal whose countenance combines the features of a bat and a feline. The long bristles at the creature's back alerts it to the farmer's presence, so it turns to face the foolhardy human who has intruded into its hunting grounds, its eyes a pallid yellow that mirrors the full moon...

Once again, you've done a flawless job in terms of technique and composition. The sparse light throughout the piece highlights the uncanny sight the onlooker has just bumped into. The chupacabra's body is not entirely visible, but what little there is to see conveys agility and sleekness. This creature is made for speed: it favors swift, relatively bloodless killings, and when that fails, it makes a quick getaway into the night before most human beings can even get their bearings.

Those yellowish eyes are remarkably shiny, almost as if the goatsucker were truly alive and about to pounce or run the hell away. The rain and dimness around the wilderness is simply exquisite: whether you painted it manually or digitally edited it in, it's truly top notch. Kudos on a magnificent submission.

Yeah, you did it again. This is wonderful Fesbra! It almost feels as if I am there looking at it for real, I can almost hear the rain and the water and the growl this creature is making after it has had its sip of blood.

Hey, thanks. No, I didn't take reference of him but I totally know who you're talking about. I'm currently trying to build up my skills to get in MTG so maybe that's way there's a similarity.

Well, should have brought the brown pants when going monster hunting...

Chile, eh? I think I've heard of another cryptid in that area, some sort of lizard-man called a Charuffe, I think.
