Mothman by V-L-A-D-I-M-I-R Mothman by V-L-A-D-I-M-I-R
"Mothman is a legendary creature reportedly seen in the Point Pleasant area of West Virginia from 15 November 1966 to 15 December 1967. The first newspaper report was published in the Point Pleasant Register dated 16 November 1966, titled "Couples See Man-Sized Bird...Creature...Something". Mothman was introduced to a wider audience by Gray Barker in 1970, later popularized by John Keel in his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies, claiming that Mothman was related to a wide array of supernatural events in the area and the collapse of the Silver Bridge."

I'm so fascinated by the mothman legend, and you really brought the creature's horror and mystery to life in this piece. I love how his bright red eyes pop and how you also incorporated eyes into his wings. Overall, really intriguing piece. :)
