Revenant
A Revenant is basically the medieval term for a zombie; corpses that would not lie easy in their grave but would rise again - typically to do evil.  However, I liked the idea of a medieval knight who felt that their crusade was not finished and would rise again.  Their goals might not be at all in line with the actual needs of the day, but they don't care, putting them in more of a grey area.  It's entirely possible they may just stand watch over people travelling to the Holy Land - or they might go and try to murder people to "free" it.  I think an ancient skeleton might not be "all there" when it comes thinking, in the literal sense.

I also tried to get a bit of a Dark Souls vibe here.

Quetzalcoatl
The great feathered serpent god of wind and learning, Quetzalcoatl (it's worth noting that the pronunciation is very unique; the "tl" sound in Nahuatl is not to be found in English, precisely) was one of the most important deities in Aztec mythology.  He was associated with priesthoods and helped create mankind.  There are a number of slightly differing stories regarding his birth and other aspects of his story, as he was a figure who appeared in the mythologies of many peoples in Central America.  He could also take on a humanoid form, but I really wanted to portray his serpent form here.

Done all in GIMP, pretty happy with how it turned out.

Snottite
Snottites are bacterial sheets that grow in some sulfurous cave systems.  They eat the sulfur and produce acid, and hang in disgusting yellow sheets!  Google it, because they look amazingly disgusting.

I tried to imagine a spirit of Snottites that lives in these caves, never having been seen by humans.  It hides under rocks that it wears like a hat when people come through, and oozes around on a stalk-like body.  Just kind of a simple but fun little picture here.

Allghoi (Mongolian Death Worm)
A Mongolian Death Worm, these little nasties live under the sand in the Gobi desert (supposedly).  About two meters long, and said to be the color of intestines, they feed on carcasses or kill prey with their powerful poison or with their electric breath weapon, straight out of DnD.  Also called Allghoi, they are not simply folklore or mythology, but are believed by some to be an existing cryptid, and expeditions have been launched to find them, unsurprisingly not finding anything like them.

Impundulu
An Impundulu is a vampiric entity from South Africa.  They are also called lightning birds and are said to look like a black and white, human-sized hammerkop, a kind of wading bird.  They can take human form and may appear or form where lightning strikes the ground, and they can also summon lightning with their wings and talons.  Their appetite for blood is immense, and they may take on the form of a human male to lure women away and presumably drink their blood.  In some versions, however, only women can see the Impundulu's true form under its human-shaped disguise.  The bloodthirst may be partially inspired by the Red-Billed Oxpecker, which eats ticks but also will peck at wounds on cattle and other megafauna, actually keeping the wound open so they can continue to drink blood.  How these attributes got transferred to the hammerkop seems strange, since it is a rather harmless bird.

Impundulu are also common familiars for magic-users in South Africa mythology, and certain elements of them have powerful magical uses, and they must be harvested in particular ways.

I drew this entirely on GIMP, as well as coloring it there.  I imagine it's actually quite a bit taller than an average person when it stands straight up, but with its hunched gait it is about 6 feet.
