Number 21: Fachen - October 25, 2009

The Fachen. Its an implike creature, who also goes under the names Peg Leg Jack, or the Dwarf of Glen Etive. It is a creature of Irish Folklore that possesses one leg, one arm and one eye.In spite of this limit, the creature is capable of destroying an entire orchard with a single chain in its arm in a single night. The creature is often humorously portrayed since it has a single tuft of hair that resembles a rooster's crown.

My drawing is a horror based form of the Fachen with a psychotic grinning imp look and wielding a ball and chain, while adding extra toes on his foot for extra traction.
