Leo as the Aztec god by Aureawolf Leo as the Aztec god by Aureawolf
Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dressed as Huitzilopochtli from Aztec mythology. He's the Aztec patron god and a warrior. He wears a big quetzal feather headdress.

I used an Aztec picture of Huitzilopochtli as a reference, especially for which colors to use. But parts of the costume are completely for fun and of my own design as well.

This came from the TMNT movie where Leo is training in South America. Also from a conversation with a friend who had played the video game version where Leo must go traverse an Aztec ruin. So yeah, inspiration all around results in strange pictures.

Colored with my copic markers. Love those things.

Hmm, an interesting concept. I hadn't actually thought about doing that, but now that you mention it, that might be pretty awesome. ^_^ Too bad I have time whatsoever for art right now. >_< Stupid crazy job. Taking up all my art time.
