Eater of the Dead's Secret Lair - Ri.S.K.

A speed paint, this was my first idea for the prompt. I figured the Eater of the Dead would be hanging out someplace remote to finish off his corpse dinner, and what else is creepier than the swamp?

Midway through the week, I decided to change my approach and was going to do a painting of the white house...get it? Bush is sort of an eater of the dead, as he directly profits from the deaths occurring in Iraq as well as in this country due to poverty, disease, natural disasters, etc. His system doesn't work for a lot of people, and I figured I'd do a political piece since I haven't done one in a while.

However, since I was too lazy to look up reference photos for the white house, and I already did some research for the swamp, here I am posting the swamp.

Awesome! I like that we don't even get to see the creature and you've left it to our imagination.
