The Bog D'hawg of Appalachia by Ashere The Bog D'hawg of Appalachia by Ashere
A glowing eyed beast of the mountains and swamps, the Bog D'hawg (or Bog Wog, as it is known in Georgia) is a long tongued, half dog half hog monster that has been known to devour small, naughty children. Or large, naughty adults. Or, in fact, large innocent adults. It's not a particularly picky animal. It is, however, remarkably fast, and implacable in pursuit of prey. If you have a problem with a Bog D'hawg, it's best to call a witch.
As soon as possible.

Hmm...two parts canine, nine parts entelodont and at least three parts hellish murder, with a splash of Serpent. I'm just gonna guess this beastie (a) easily matches "Hogzilla" and its ilk in length, breadth & general mass, and (b) sports some degree of pernicious supernatural resilience, so musket balls & arrows, unless delivered in bulk, merely guarantee it'll be barreling your way with even more malice aforethought.

Great combination of creature design, motion & facial perspective, although the lower left tusk could use a slight touching-up. But honestly, I'm splitting bristles here.

The minute I read the half dog half hog description, I thought entelodont. It's a big sucker, and it's resistance has more to do with big heavy bones and thick skin--works out basically the same way, though. The original creature is more stealthy, but I like this design well enough to make it more of a charger. Wild pigs are mean as hell, after all.

Forgive my misspellings, by the way. I'm tired. :)

Cheerfully forgiven, sir-given current linguistic standards on the net, your very concern in that regard's a rare & precious thing. Apologies if my diatribes are biting too great a chunk outta your downtime.

Anyhow, considering the use that bears, buffalo & even elephants can make of woodland/grassland cover, I see no problem with your spin on the Boggy's build.
