Santiago Betancur

Ask the people of Chiloé, an island archipelago off the southern coast of Chile, and they might tell you about the infamous Trauco - a small humanoid creature that lives deep in the forest, similar to a dwarf or goblin. According to Chilota mythology, it possesses a powerful allure that's irresistible to anyone it chooses, despite its unsightly face and legs without feet.

This version of the Trauco was created as part of Creatuanary, an art challenge in the vein of Inktober that invites artists to design new creatures every day in January.
