This one I kind of botched.

For me the term Ghoul is interesting in modern parlance it’s kind of merged with modern meaning of ┬áZombie and for the most that works… But the thing is I’ve read some of the Arabic folktales they come from and in those they seem like some kind of dessert ogre, thin, fast and deadly, kind of a jackal to the ogre’s wolf.

And that was kind of what I was going for in the first sketch giving it kind of a snarling baboon face and even though I wasn’t happy with the picture as a whole it did the trick as far as the parameters of this exercise went….But Then I got a better idea that I just couldn’t let go of. So I ended up with two sketches for the price of one today… even though the price tag feels slightly higher.
