There's this neato book-thing out there called the Beasts Book in which a whole bunch of really rad artists have illustrations of different beasts and monsters and things.
After minimal research I found this feller, who I chose to do mainly because his description leaves a lot to the imagination and I wasn't confined by dozens of previously made renditions of him. Quoted from good old Wikipedia, "The cuegle is a monster in Cantabrian folklore. Walking on two legs and roughly humanoid in shape, it has black skin, three arms without hands or fingers, five rows of teeth, a single stubby horn and three eyes in its head: one green, one red, and one blue. The cuegle attacks people and livestock, and is reputed to steal babies from the cradle."
So this is what I came up with to represent the cuegle! The scan came out a bit funky, but you get the idea :)
