The Lumberjack’s Famed, Fish Faced, People Eating, Landslide!
Been a lil while since we’ve done an old lumberjacky legend. They almost always have a good turnout, and this one has some of our favorite characteristics to boot, it’s ridiculously oversized and a people eater!
Essentially what we have here is some kind of beady eyed, wide mouthed, sculpin looking, land whale with a grasping hand or claw or hook where it’s tail should be that it uses to secure itself to the top of a hillside.
From this beautiful Rocky Mountain vantage point our beastly protagonist can simply watch the trails below and when a suitably delicious batch of lumberjacks, hikers or explorers unwittingly finds itself in the targeted area, our beast releases a lil slippery drool from the corners of its grin, then opens his mouth wide, releases his tail, slides down the hill gobbling up all people in its path and using its momentum to slip right up the next hillside to begin the process a new!
Here’s the bulleted list for the attention deficient:
- Enormous Sculpin shaped land fish
- A mouth large enough to swallow people whole
- Creepy, beady eyes
- A tail capable or grasping a hilltop
- It’s drool acts as a hillside lubricant
- Leaves evidence much like a landslide
Now as there so often is with Fearsome Critters, there is a lil humorous round up of the story where a forest ranger defeated one of these beasts by stuffing a dummy full of dynamite and dressing it like a tourist… eventually leading to the destruction of said beast and the hillside and the neighboring towns… you get the point… so now we just ask that you draw it!
As is the new plan, Winner Gets a Shirt! And I’m judging again, so extra points if you’re new, or have never won or if you’re really bad, or really good, or just make me laugh, or frighten me, or somehow retell a single framed rocky mountain version of Pinocchio… just do your worst and lets see where that gets us!
