This is a very interesting concept. I never thought of the Wendigo like this, but it is food for thought. Nicely done, especially the wicked grin.

There are many wendigo variations. Eyewitness reports in early america minnesota were hunted by a bigfoot like creature that was all white, hairless on it's chest, and had fangs instead of blunt teeth. An entire town lived in fear of these sightings for a long time. Native american legends talk of it being a spirit of intense anguish or hate that could be as small as an ant or grow to engulf an entire forest with it's head touching the sky.
This is a good representation of Algernon's wendigo though. If you ever do this again though don't forget the "oh my feet o fire!". In the story the creature and anyone it turned ran so fast their feet would burn off.
This is still very good nonetheless I like it.

The Wendigo is one of my favorite Algernon Blackwood stories, i think this is a very good representation of what one might look like :)
