According to Indian folklore of the Ojibwe tribe, the Wendigo was described as a being of great spiritual and supernatural power. They were associated with the Winter, and coldness, as well as with famine and starvation. They were often depicted as gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tautly over its bones. Its complexion the ash grey of death and its eyes sunk deep into their sockets. Whenever a Wendigo ate another person, it would grow larger, in proportion to the meal it had just eaten, so that it could never be full. Based on this description, this custom Wendigo was made to look completely famished, and ready to cannibalise anything or anyone in its path.
The recipe is quite simple, with hours of sculpting over top and dry brushing. Enjoy the pics, thanks for looking, more showdowns to throw down next time!

This is very cool, I always hated the Marvel Legends Wendigo for being a Sasquatch remake...Wendigo is a separate entity and deserves it's own sculpt. And what you've done is great, the figure really fits the mental image given off by the description.
