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…

Great cryptid! I'm also into cryptozoolgy, and I love you're take on the chupacabra, it looks more like a living animal than many others I've seen.
It's a shame there isn't a cryptozoology group for this guy to go in, but anyway...
Great work :D

I'm surprised that there isn't a cryptozoology group...or perhaps we just haven't found it yet. Someone should create one!

Thanks!

Looks awesome, most people say it looks like a coyote or dog with mange (thats what I think) The glowing eyes could just be light reflection, the spines could just be the animals spine and with mange it loses all it's fur. Sounds about right.... Then again Chupacabra is on of my favorites.

That theory seems likely to me as well, but I still like the thought of there being a real Chupacabra out there!
