The Iliamna Lake Monster

IMG_0716.JPG

On cryptid wiki it says “The Iliamna Lake Monster, also known as Illie to many locals, Jig-ik-nak in Tlingit, or Gonakadet in Aleutian, is an aquatic cryptid reported to dwell in the small Alaskan fishing village of Iliamna. The native’s tales describe a large beast that roams the waters. The monster has many reported sightings along with a few reported caused deaths.” “The earliest reports of a monster living in the lake came from the native Tlingit people, who tell stories of a creature referred to as the Gonakadet. It was described as a large, water-dwelling animal with a head and tail similar to that of a wolf, and a body like an orca, very similar to the Akhlut.” “Other early reports of the monster came from the native Aleut people, who tell stories of creatures they call the Jig-ik-nak. The fish-like monsters were reported to travel in groups and attack canoes and kill warriors. The creatures were feared and not hunted by the Aleut. This sparked interest in others as pilots and fishermen began to wonder what the creatures were. Many more sightings were reported as people began to fly low over the lake for the purpose of seeing these monster fish. Consistent reports of large, dull, aluminum-colored fish were coming in by the late 50’s.”

Inktober 2016 #10: Tim the Zombie pig man

img_0341

This is Tim, he’s a character  that I originally decided not to make into a oc, that has come back from the dead for Halloween. I based Tim off the  minecraft Zombie pig man. He lived in the house that  John lives in now.  On his original sketch I made of him, the stocking with a tree as seen in Merry Christmas 2014, was on a ugly christmas sweater he was wearing. In this cemetery are all the creatures I’ve drawn that haven’t been turned into an oc, and creatures I don’t plan on ever redrawing.Max was a drawing of a dog I made before my family got Molly.
