Laignech Fáelad (werewolf mercenaries)

Seeing as it's close to Hallowe'en, I was thinking of a mythological race of Irish werewolves called Laignech Fáelad, who would fight as mercenaries for anyone who could pay them. They weren't interested in gold, instead their price was the flesh of newborn babies! I had this old sculpt demo model of a lycanthrope (based on An American Werewolf in London) so I screen grabbed a view views and had some fun using Dall-E2 to fill out some unfinished areas, such as hair on the face and neck and ears.

Interesting blend between the harness of the face and the encroaching facial hair

I like the impression of ears here almost obscured by the bokeh

I like this one but the fin-like protrusions on the face remind me more of a dragon

Shorter hair on the neck and mane here, looks a bit rubbery
