The Chupacabra

When I first came up with the design for the head of this creature; it was intended to be fitted onto the body of a monster known as Grendel; the monstrous creature in the Epic Beowulf, which accounts for the scaly body of the creature in the pic as Grendel is more likely a sea-dwelling monster. But when the picture was completed, my mind kept drawing me to a description that I've came across about this mysterious creature that's mutilating the livestocks in South America. Eyewitness report of a strange bipedal creature which is likely of exterrestrial origin, it has razor-sharped claws, fangs, and that hypnotic glare from these red glowing eyes, with a body that is covered with greenish scales. This ghoulish creature was named El Chupacabra which is Spanish for Goat-sucker. Its name is derive from the methods by which its victim was killed; drained of blood probably through a punctured wound caused by the sucker-like mouth of the creature and drawn through a straw-like tongue, assisted by its saliva which act as a anti-coagulant allowing it to suck with ease.
