Mankey

I once again decided to do a real Pokemon chop.  This chop is of Mankey, a monkey inspired fighting pokemon.

My depiction is much closer to a real monkey, but the only piece of a monkey that I used was the face.  I started this chop with a basic sketch, and then filled it with teddy bear fur and monkey skin textures.  Click on the image to make it much larger.

Vila

The Vila are a Slavic tradition.  While there are many versions and names for this creature, they all share the same basic concept; a beautiful woman that changes forms when angry.  Some folklore believes these women to be the ghosts of fair maidens who died before their wedding night.  Despite the many tales of their origin, this enticing creature enjoys luring a weary man to kill him, and often cause storms when their tempers flare.  Below are snapshots of two Vila, both in their beautiful form and their true form.
