Chupacabra by LuxDani Chupacabra by LuxDani
Wow, two submissions in one day.

Man, do I ever love cryptids. Creatures that may or may not exist. Such as the chupacabra, bigfoot, or the Loch Ness, to name a few.
I want to get into cryptozoology.

The Chupacabra, translated to "Goat sucker", is often described as a reptilian looking canine with a forked tongue and long spikes sticking out of its spine. It is extremely thin, and has exaggerated claws and teeth. Hairless and can be scaly, it also has eyes that emit a faint red glow.
There is another appearance, alien like creature, but that didn't appeal to me quite as much.

So here's my interpretation of a Chupacabra. I think I leaned a little too much towards that canine side, much to my dismay. But I still like the result.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can add in the background. Its lacking something.

Someone should start a club that is all about cryptozoology. I would join.

Here's a close up of its face: i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii…
