Ozarks Monster- Snawfus by ayellowbirds Ozarks Monster- Snawfus by ayellowbirds
I'm obsessed with the monsters, creatures, and critters of North American folklore, both modern and indigenous. I've always got ideas brewing for how to use it in my D&D setting, but lately i've felt more like focusing on research and illustration than writing, so that portion is on the back burner for now.

The snawfus comes to us from the folklore of the Ozarks, particularly Arkansas, and my illustration is based on the descriptions given in Vance Randolph's We Always Lie to Strangers: Tall Tales from the Ozarks, 1952 printing. Some accounts tell of it towering over the trees, or breathing out the hazy blue mist that often covers the hills and mountains. I am freaking amazed that this thing isn't more popular, especially considering the tendency of furries and other artists on here to draw various animals with wings and other exception features.

I wish the head didn't look so flat, though.
