Scandinavian tales and creatures

Skogsrån (watchers of the forest) are mysterious women who guard the forest and all its creatures. Seen from the front they are unearthly beautiful, but their backs are hollow like old and rotten trees, and they often have the tail of an animal. To protect the forest, they seduce and sleep with woodcutters and then steal their souls, leaving them empty husks of their former selves.

Is it just me or does the left side of the face look kind of like Mads Mikkelsen?

Finally got my next giveaway info up! If ya want a drawing like this from me, reblog this post! (Character can be from any time period, btw!) You can reblog as many times as ya want, but tumblr only registers one reblog per tumblr account; reblogging more than once just repositions your name in the number order. Anyways, just wanted to say thanks to everybody who follows me for your support and the kind words you always have for me. Means so much to me; thank you~
