SKELVINE

As a personal project I created a fictitious forest called Skelvine. I invented the creatures that would inhabit the forest and illustrated them. The creatures are hybrids of animals you would find in the forest but with fantastical ablitities. I created a field guide on these creatures with information about how to handle them if found.

LUNA BELORIS
LUNA BELORIS

Although this creature is attractive, a Luna Beloris will use it's beauty to to their advantage, captivating their victim before feeding on their blood. The saliva of a Luna Beloris left on the victims bite wound, has the ability to wipe the victim's memory and sense of direction. The effects are temporary but in some cases can lead to the victim's death. A Luna Beloris is naturally capable of true and sustained flight. They are twilight creatures and are most vicious on a full moon.

CREVAN
CREVAN

Crevans inhabit the part of Skelvine where the trees are the largest. The trees in Crevan Copse grow to 5 times the size of an average oak tree and have leaves the size of a human face. Crevans make huge nests out of thin branches and leaves. Crevans are carnivores, they mainly consist of newborn Welkins and even injured or vulnerable humans. Crevans fly by night and rest during the day. They have a melodious call similar to the notes of a piccolo.

SERPENTINE
SERPENTINE

Serpentines lurk in the misty waters of the Cimmerian Blue in Skelvine Forest. Unlike snakes Serpentines have sharp teeth. In shallow waters Serpentines curl up and wait for their prey. After coiling around the victims legs they drag them out to the deeper areas of the lake. Serpentines have luminous properties. There is a strip of light along their scales which Serpentines use at night to find their way; it also attracts smaller water creatures that swim towards the light.
