Curupira is a very popular tale about a boy protector of the woods whose feet are turn to his back and hair is on fire. His best friend - and ride - is a wild pig, a boar. On original version he kills hunters and people that put fire in the forest and disappears with them,  but for kids he just scares the bad guys. I'm very happy to illustrate my own view of this folk tale because all kids in Brazil grow up reading and playing with these stories. 

Later I had a chance to complete the character and his pet, a wild pig. All arts are available also at Advocate Art website
