In Scottish folklore, a kelpie is a shape-shifting water spirit that may take the form of horse in order to drown anyone foolish enough to try to ride them. This comic by cartoonist Emma Weakley imagines a particularly tragic encounter between two young boys and one of those horse-shaped monsters.

Be sure to go to Weakley’s DeviantArt gallery (where she goes by porcelianDoll) to see her kelpie art in its full glory — as well as her other artwork. You can also follow her on Tumblr.
