Av Tupilaq Witherling by Exileden Av Tupilaq Witherling by Exileden
Quick art trade with lovely *CoyoteMange

Originally was supposed to be doodle/sketch trade, but i ended making him a tad more detailed than planned.
Just couldn't resist with playing with creativity of designing witherlings. I really like her critters, I could plunge myself into void of creating thousand Witherling designs if I could.
Originally I had in my mind to have simplier design but my bad habit made him more detaily-detailed.

Anyway. It's my witherling design- Tupilaq (formely Av Tupilaq). According to inuit legends Tupilaq is a fearsome soul beast. People in greenland don't believe but fear. Myths and spiritual legends were created by their fear. They created masks to "connect" with Inuit spirits in some legends.
Till today they still believe in folkfores.

Tupilaq is an abandoned witherling. Withdrawn by nature. It's unknown if it has other species of Tupilaq family or it's only one kind. So far, it's seen only once.
Everyone fear of him. Irrationally of course, so far no threats or real danger came from Tupilaq spirit itself.

... poor thing.

Aww, I'm glad you liked my Witherling! And I really like that one, I love the mask design. Better idea than what I did!
I like also Niaquq one.
