Serpentis

‘ve been working on this picture on and off for the past couple of days.
It’s felt really, really good to design something from the ground up.

Serpentis is the flesh Goddess of my canon setting and the deity that Torquemada serves as High-Bailiff. I had a strong mental image for her so decided to give her a try.
She lives in Hell/The Underworld of the world setting and her story is pretty folk-lore-sy.

My idea for her is that all flesh belongs to her and that she loans it out to the living. Should they abuse her trust and she finds out about it she sends her Bailiffs to collect the debts. They return the wasted flesh to her, which she consumes, but as she is incomplete herself the flesh falls from her innards into a mound in which she resides and is perpetually angry as her hunger can never be fulfilled..

    Very striking- especially the eyes. To eat but never feel full….

    So all your creations share a common world? Is this just for background and to help you create characters? Or is this part of fiction/world building for an RPG? Or something else? I like the story if this character, her endless hunger must make her a bit angry.

      Not all of them, but the characters Torquemada, Hope and Serpentis are linked, but their world is gradually growing as I work with them more. It’s a personal project rather than anything ‘serious’ like an RPG.
      I can’t think of anything that would make me madder than being endlessly hungry.
