Grey Beast

Painting of a critter from an old sketch. I have a thing for creatures with huge beefy necks and sloped faces it seems (via bull terriers). The Grey Beast serves as a sort of folk creature, fulfilling the purposes of a unicorn and black dog. All Grey Beasts have heterochromia, the right eye is always blue, and the left is always red. According to legend, whichever eye is seen first predicts a different fate. The blue eye predicts a peaceful and natural death for the viewer, the red eye a tragic and fast approaching demise. Only virgin maidens can safely approach the Grey Beast without succumbing to these twists of fate.
