I've heard stories of the boo hag. A man remarries, only to find out she's a monster. You know the best way to get rid of em, right?

Salt the leftover skin and force them out into the sunlight.

Isn't it weird that this thing and the Soucouyant are so much alike?

Well, they both draw from Afro-american folklore, so it makes sense.

Really chilling that their real form involves peeling off their skin.

Sir, you have a real eye for barely-fleshed-over human(oid) skulls; this sorcerous wench's optics just plain pop. Plus, given the manic glee with which that skin's being waved about, I presume blending in with the unsuspecting masses must itch like a bastard.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it--I actually had some of your paintings half in mind when I did it. i initially was going to just clean up the sketch, but I decided to try something a little wilder. :)
