Minor/Major Project: Wendigo Body Studies and Mouth Sketches

The wendigo is often described and depicted as having the body of a malnourished human being, with elongated limbs. To add to the animalistic quality, I looked at kyphosis (when the upper back curves forward abnormally), so the wendigo may also crawl on all fours when hunting, and eat easily from the ground.

The wendigo's mouth I picture as a mess of teeth, with new, sharper teeth that have grown in to aid the tearing of flesh. The human teeth have become jagged and broken from gnawing on bones, as well as being pushed by the new teeth.
Alternatively, as seen in sketch 4, I like the idea of the skull taking on a dramatic transformation, with the bones around the jaw and teeth elongating until they jut out past the lips, creating a longer mouth to more easily bite at victims.


  1. Hey, I like 3 and 4 for more animalistic mouth :)


  3. I really like the 2nd mouth and the 4th :)

  4. really liking the jaggedness of 3 and how 4 juts out!
