There are some good Wendigo illustrations online, which might also be useful in getting the look.

Yeah, that's the illustration I thought you were working off, which doesn't give you a huge amount of detail! A wendigo illustration might give you some better anatomical guidelines, onto which you can sculpt the unique details of that fella. Looks very heraldic doesn't it?
