Striga by weremoon Striga by weremoon
Somewhere in deep dark forest ;P
Striga is a creature from slavic (and not only) folklore, a little similar to vampire (killing,drinking blood). She could also change into an owl to hunt at night. I pictured her here as something in between.

Ink sketch edited in photoshop (colours,textures...). I may get back to this, but now I'll just leave it like that.

Oh yes, "Striga" is also the Romanian name of the barn owl! :D
And of course, for the witches...

jedna z moich ulubionych polskich istot demonicznych. Jest chyba jedną z najbardziej złożonych, chodzi mi o etymologię, wygląd, to, co może zrobić, i skąd się bierze, że ma dwa życia, tak jak serca i dusze i zęby.
Podobnie jak wilkołak chyba najbardziej pobudza wyobraźnię.
Pióra (strój sowy? - lub po prostu ptasi wygląd) dodaje strzydze na twoim rysunku czegoś zwiewnego i lekkiego, a czerwone oko jest takie symboliczne =) ).
Pozdrawiam ciepło.
