Darkness Lurks by Thornwolf

Darkness Lurks


This is my contribution to the 2015 Werewolf Calendar. - Preorders open September 1!

It is no coincidence that werewolves continue to considered fabled beasts of yore, as they take great care to remain elusive to humans. Sightings are more often than not the result of an inexperienced young rogue coming too close to human populations in an attempt to survive on their own, which can stir up new fables and tales of fearsome beasts that are half man, half wolf. The majority of werewolves possess the ability to hide in plain sight, either through clever camouflage, ample use of their natural surroundings for cover, or certain behavior causing people to think that what they saw was simply an abnormally large wolf.

I was very inspired by the stories of the Beast of Gevaudan and the concept of mass hysteria caused by a sighting of an unknown creature. Perhaps it's just an ordinary wolf, or perhaps its actually one of their own, having fallen victim to the beast's curse.
