Jenny Greenteeth of Whitechapel

Another from the Remake / Remodel challenge over on Whitechapel, although this one I didn’t have time to colour up before the finish so I present the final version here.

The challenge this time was Jenny Greenteeth, a river hag with a penchant for drowning children;

“You will update. You will recontextualise. You will use your tasty brainbits as well as your scribbledy pens of power.

Bethunk as follows: how does a slime-titted water-devil fit into whatever passes for contemporary folklore? Is she the same old hag of yesteryear, now living a 21st century life? Is she keeping herself to herself, or using her unique skills (of, um, drowning children) to get by? Has she found a new niche, as a Modern Monster?”

For some reason I thought of underage binge drinking and alcopops. I didn’t find out she was also called Ginny Greenteeth until I was well underway.
