Exclusive: The Complete Hominid

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 18th, 2006

Despite how frustrated a few people may be of the speculations, more images of the Johor Hominid continue to fire the imagination of other artists. Now with the tracings from Vincent Chow and Sean Ang, it only seems logical that someone would try to pull together the various parts of the picture. Cryptomundo shares the first ones with you.

A Cryptomundo reader has done exactly this (see above). Paul Goodall combines the tracings-from-photographs of Chow and Ang, plus the descriptions in recent news articles, for this “Cryptomundo Exclusive” complete sketch of the Johor Hominid. The Goodall drawing rather factually records what might appear in the photograph mentioned by Chow, down to the wild hair on this more pongid-looking creature.

Intriguingly, Linda Godfrey’s illustration (above) of a Bigfoot seen during the fall of 2005, in Wisconsin, shows a likewise wild crown of hair, but as you can see in closer comparison, the Johor Hominid appears differently than a similarly aged juvenile male.

The widespread diversity of hairy hominoids worldwide is well-understood, and head hair can be a coincidence. More importantly, with this abundance of new images emerging of the Johor Hominid, as we have seen from the art of Peter Loh (below), also “Crytomundo exclusives” imagined after the tracings appeared, the Johor Hominid’s image continues to evolve from day to day.

Only the publication of the alleged photographs will quiet the critics, skeptics, foes, and friends. Or the capture of a Malaysian Bigfoot. But at the present time, we have no control of that situation, of course.

Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T.

    Now we’re having some fun.

    Skeptics/wet-blanket types: speculation is the very meat of crypto. Something has to keep us engaged and, yes, entertained until there’s hard facts to deal with; something has to lead science into the dark corners where it fears to tread. You only get a Patterson film to dissect once a generation, ferpetesake!

    The trick is walking that line between interesting speculation and Bigfoot Is A Fourth-Dimension Emissary From Enlightened Galaxies Beyond. And I think Cryptomundo is doing that quite well, thank you.

    Yes, I said ENTERTAINED. If this weren’t fun, I sure wouldn’t be here.

    GO PETE!

  2. fredfacker responds:

    Sketch all you want as long as the testicles are touching the ground while the Johor Hominid is squatting. They sure made a big deal to emphasize that point on Johor site.

    (Not personally excited about photographed cryptestes.)

  3. shumway10973 responds:

    It almost makes me wonder if one of the original artists did just that and then they split it up just to keep people’s attention, the “carrot dangling on a stick” as it were.

  4. twblack responds:

    Yes I agree this is getting a little funny er I mean entertaing. I totally agree with DWA. What ever they got can probably not even come close to hype of the whole story. That is if they have anything.

  5. Mr Tito responds:

    The feet on the animal in the sketches do not look anything like the plaster casts or footprint photos they had shown previously. Are the first three supposed to be tracings of the photos or what???

  6. Ole Bub responds:

    Good evening Bloggers…

    Too many factors in play here…third world politics to psuedo science, copyrights, timber rights, mineral rights, Johor Hominid rights…movie rights….what else is left…LOL

    I remain skeptical but willing to take these folks at their word til proven otherwise…let’s reserve judgement til all the facts and photos are in…JMHO

    seeing is believing…

    ole bub and the dawgs

  7. tcsee responds:

    Don’t forget the seperate toes.

    Also, if not mistaken, the JH face drawn by Vincent is an angry looking female JH, isn’t it?
