Kuk: The Tourist by BalamTzibtah
Kuk: The Tourist
Here we go again... another project starting... can't help but wonder how far will this get...

He's name is Kuk (the mayan guy... not the lovely japanese :P )
He will be traveling all over the world... getting to know all cultures, landscapes and stuff must of us we'll never get to see... I mean, gotta travel somehow, right?

Wallpaper size... feel free to let this guy be your "travel wallpaper" any time ;)

And by the way... The bg reads "tourist" in japanese. 
Xibalba Entrance by BalamTzibtah
Xibalba Entrance
This is what happens when I have some time off and can think of anything else to draw...
Guess I'm still with this high contrast thing...
And still can't figure out if his going it or guarding the way out.
Coatlicue Request by BalamTzibtah
Coatlicue Request
Went full Mignola here... I mean, it's no secret he's my first serious influence... and I would say the greatest.
It's been too long since I wanted to do something with all his style but with my themes.

She's Coatlicue, the aztec god of Earth... her name means "The one of the serpent skirt", and I did "mayanize" her a lot :P even though she has not direct relation with any of the mayan gods (Some say her equivalent would be Chac Chel...)

The other character is a simple version I've always used of Itzamna... the First mayan god. 

Any way, hope you guys like this piece ;)
Been receiving a lot of questions about these last animations I've uploaded... :D
So I'd like to know if anyone would really like to see how they are done and take part making their own... It'll be sort of a tutorial-workshop thing...

  • Mood: Angsty
  • Listening to: Water running... kinda nice
  • Reading: Some thesis about the mayans
  • Drinking: Coffee as usual

Thanks!! Glad you do :D

Tzibtah means something like "the man (or the one in charge) of drawing/writting".
The balam tzibtah's were the keeper of the written language and it's secrets ;)
