October is the spooooky month ;] I hope you enjoy my contribution! Support the Werewolf Calendar, it is a great project: [link]
"The 'Rogue' werewolf is a contageous problem. While rogue werewolves are known for killing and eating humans, some are notorious for biting and leaving new werewolves without guidance. A new werewolf, confused and often in denial about something previously believed impossible, will often resist shifting, and find themselves eventually shifting and feeding without control, much like sleepwalking. This behavior usually leads to eating humans and pets, which are in their closest proximity. This reckless behavior quickly catches up with them, and if they're lucky, local werewolves will find them and either help them or kill them. If they're unlucky, they will be driven to the same rogue habits of their predecessor and become a true monster."
9/13: I have updated with a revised version :] thanks everyone
There's a Medieval English folk myth that's much the same to this. It came from down south near Summerset in about the 14th or 1500's.
It's called the Black Shuck.
It about a Black god that roams the night. The story goes a dog with red devilish eyes once attacked a church and killed 2 members of the congregation in the 14th century and left it's claw marks on the door, which can (supposedly) still be seen today. It's said that if anyone comes across the Black Shuck by night, so see's it, will have misfortune fallen upon them (mainly death in a family) or something like that.
Thought I'd mention this as the picture you have made here reminded me of that creepy story.
i like that explanation.. a grim prognosis for a grim problem.. how does a fellow ww help another ww (werewolf) haha! unnecessary abbreviation.. but still serious about my question! any advice for a werewolf from a werewolf?
This picture creates a really strong atmosphere, perfectly fitting with the theme of October and so with Halloween. It also shows an interesting effect of the werewolf world and one special feature which seems to be the reason why a lot of people like werewolves. The image of the "doppelgänger". To be able to become something completely different than you are in your "normal" life. I also really like the story behind it, since it actually would be like written in the comment. The experience of becoming a werewolf could break the mind of a human who has never thought that werewolves could be real. The impact of the picture it self and especially its atmosphere is absolutely impressive. The effect of the spotlight as the only lightsource gives the picture a special creepyness and in combination with the reflecting, glowing eyes of the werewolf here it almost gives me the creeps. Just imagine what it would be like to walk on a graveyard like that, turn your flashlight on and see this scene here. This picture totally reminds that a werewolf has also a very feral and almost monsterous side. To sum it up. The effects are awesome, the drawing itself just flashes my mind, the damn high grade of detail is totally amazing and the incredibly strong atmoshpere makes this THE Halloween picture for me for this year, even if Halloween will still need one month to pass
