The Beast of Gevaudan by TonyGCampagna The Beast of Gevaudan by TonyGCampagna
This is the second in my Moonlight Horror Series:
Inspired by the French legend about a man-eating wolf-like animal that terrorized the former province of Gevaudan in the Margeride Mountains in southern France from 1764 to 1767.

See The Beast of Gevaduan 2: [link]

Here we go. The most striking features of this image are the ferocity of the loup garou, the man-eating wolf creature around which you centered, and his antique setting. The setting is very apropos of his nature. You remind me of my story Les Loups Garoux about an Old One called N'girth'lu who was bigger but similar style.The wolf man here is very natural and malignant, vicious. I debate to say evil since animals lack that judgement. You have done a startling image altogether, and I like his expression. I will wait for the next part in the series, and look for the first image as well. Well-done.
What do you think?

Excellent work.  It is nice to see somebody else creating artwork from paranormal or cryptid reports.

Thank you. Likewise; that's what I found intriguing about your work. There's not too many of us on dA interested in the paranormal or cryptid subject matter unfortunately.

I've been a story devourer since childhood.  Do you know of any others?  I'm in a paranormal group, but nothing seems to be about the paranormal.  I am thinking of starting my own group.

Same here, I couldn't and cant get enough of those subjects. If you do start a group, I'd love to join.

There is one small problem. It wasn't a werewolf. I belive it was something else. But definitely not a werewolf.
