I decided to host a giveaway in celebration of Halloween. This giveaway is taking place over on my Instagram account | @artistskr .
The prize? One winner will choose two original ink illustrations from the ten listed above. Let’s look at these beauties a little larger, shall we?
La Ciguapa is a type of demon spirit from the Dominican Republic. She is always a naked female with blue skin, long dark hair and black eyes. People either find her frightening or beautiful. Her feet are backwards so as to confuse trackers. Her purpose is to lure men into the woods to their deaths.
Skogsrå is a type of troll which wishes to be human. In Sweden she has the tail of a fox and generally dresses like a village maiden to lure men to their deaths.
Giltinė is the Lithuanian Goddess of death. She is always tall, skeletal, & blind. Dressed in white carrying either a scythe or a pair of scissors to cut you from the world of the living. She can also appear as an owl.
Huli Jing is a seven (or nine) tailed Chinese fox spirit that turns into a beautiful female to lure men to their deaths. Other times they simply fall in love with human males or help young human females learn magic to control armies.
Jorōgumo is the Japanese spider demon, who turns into a beautiful female to lure men to their deaths.
