CUETZPALIN since 1519

One of those drawings done during boring classes, this is the new form of Moctezuma Xocoyotzin, a Cuetzpalin (a race of reptilian humanoids native to Aztlán) who used to be one of the last rulers of Tenochtitlán, during the time of the spanish invasion. After missing for a while, as some people had foretold he would return to lead them to battle for their ancestors' ways against the foreigner rule, that sometimes tries to pose as a "globalized, human rule".

Behind him, there are statues of two gods from the Cuetzpalin: Tlaloc and Huitzopoca.

Well, the message is pretty clear: (Proudly) killing the bastards of christ since 1519.

This is a piece of my sketchbook related to the CUETZPALIN Mythos

There is a grandeur I feel in this. I hate to say it, but I love the decapitated conquistador head. And I also love reptile anthros.
My country was under Spanish rule for about three centuries, and they had my countrymen under their heel for all those years.
