Finnish Folklore by JynetteTigner
Finnish Folklore
Recently I've been delving in to different regions folklore, I'm a sucker for a good story, which prompted this painting of the ghoulish creature Raamt.
A short description:  
”Raamt” is a ghostly and unpleasant creature. He's an evil being, who shows himself to people and almost scares them to death. Many children, who grew up here around often heard the warning ”Watch out for Raamt!”. He could show up in a grain house, in the forest or in another place where children shouldn't be. Many times there have been stories told about something big, dark and unpleasant following you, like a perception. In the old Norse language there's the word ”rammr”, which means ”a hand with extending fingers”. I'm not sure you can find Raamt in any other area of Scandinavia. He seems to exist only here on the west coast of Finland. - made.hubpages.com/hub/Forest-C…

A personal practice painting trying to convey the feeling of fragility. Also to work on hands.

Beauty and the Beast by JynetteTigner
Beauty and the Beast
This is a redone painting of an old composition of mine. I really wanted to show how much my portrait skills have improved but I don't have a photo of the other painting. Ah well, I'm really happy with how it turned out anyway. The beauty and the beast story is one of my favorites.

The Black Cat by JynetteTigner
The Black Cat
An illustration depicting Edgar Allen Poe's "The Black Cat," a fairly creepy short story. I had fun experimenting with texturing in this one.

Would you please donate if you have spare points? We would be more than thankful.
