Gilgamesh and the Scorpion Men Picture

"Scorpion Men are featured in several Akkadian language myths, such as the 'Enuma Elish' and the Babylonian version of the 'Epic of Gilgamesh'. They were also known as 'aqrabuamelu' or 'girtablilu'."


So I had to do this for English, where I would draw out a scene from The Epic of Gilgamesh, so I decided to do when he met the Scorpion men. I took my own sorta..twisted take on them, and I can say I'm actually really proud of this!!

So yeah the lil dude is Gilgamesh, in case you were wondering
