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.

Genialny art. Uwielbiam słowiańską demonologię, a strzyga jest jednym z najciekawszych demonów. Chciałam ją nawet narysować, ale nic z tego nie wyszło. U Ciebie wygląda tak, jak ją sobie wyobrażałam. :)

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.

Cool looking harpy, I would say. Though with a little altering on those feathers, that could be Hera!

"it feasts on your eyes,
it feasts on nose,
it feasts on your flesh
and devours your soul.
Beware the creature that walks in the night
and stay out of the forest past sunsets light"
... wow, instant poem... cool
