My rendition of the (in)famous cryptid known as Chupacabra ("goat sucker" in Spanish and Portuguese). I remember well about alleged cases linked to it, involving dead, bloodless animals being widespread in rural areas of Latin America back in the 90's, including here in Brazil.
Though there are many versions of Chupacabra with very different physical descriptions, I tried to create a somewhat new one but more similar to the "alien" description, which is more widespread in Brazil than the "canid" version, which is more common in Texas. I'm not very fond of the dog or jackal-like version.
The alien version is somewhat similar to a grey alien but with sharp spikes along their head and back and, of course, sharp fangs. My version, however, has a more protruding, dinosaur-like face and a visible pointed ear, no hair or scales, and three fangs, since in most alleged cases the dead animals were found with three holes in the neck from which the blood was extracted.
And since my artworks usually must have a simple background, I obsviouly decided to draw a rural one.
