Grotesque Moi!: Akrep
“Akrep” March 2020 Digital 16″x20″ Procreate/Manga Studio 5
Illustration seven is a digital media creature portrait for my Grotesque Moi! project of Akrep. Her home is on Ba’antha among the ruins of Salu Island. It’s the largest in the Roah island chain. The ruins were once the great city of XonZe, a commerce and trade community. When business moved to Port Belgarn of Chol most of the residents moved with it.
There was a series of quakes that opened an underground gas pocket. Akrep’s arachnid race are the only ones that can survive in the environment. Very little is known about them because no explorers have ever returned from Salu Island. Only passing ships that catch glimpses of them collect the only known details. Which are few.
