Aztlan Website by itzamahel

For these latest two months I've been working on

a navigable website based on an illustrated map of AZTLÁN

This site's purpose is to introduce you to the world of Aztlán, one of the many worlds which

compose the universe of the CUETZPALIN Mythos

(a mythopoeia I've been working on for some time, which story script is almost finished,
and which dictates most of my recent drawings and paintings. I plan to work it
on comics platform, but before that I'd like to introduce other elements of the story
by means such as web and character illustrations, this Aztlán website being the case).

There you'll find info about the Aztec Confederation's History - its Five Sun Eras,

detailed info about each Altepetl - 'city-states' and its presiding Teteoh - deities.
Make sure to check the project's presentation on Behance and appreciate it if you liked ;) (Wink) !

The website is not finished yet, however you can (and I encourage you to :happybounce: ) navigate its

 prototype version via invision

(only note the current version is brazilian portuguese only).

As I'm just beginning to experiment with web, I'd really appreciate your feedback.
And if you're a fan of Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures as I am, make sure to check
my Aztec Cosmology-related gallery here at dA. It has detailed descriptions of most of the artwork used on the website.
I've also used some stuff from the Aztec-inspired playing cards game I've worked
in collaboration w/ fellow deviant :icontyphonian-apkallu: more than a year ago.

Notice: as I stated, the content used here is inspired by the Mexica/Aztec cosmology, so are not to be taken
as faithful interpretations of the actual religion and its elements. As part of the CUETZPALIN Mythos, a story which
incorporates some of my personal views, this world of Aztlán doesn't follow the original narrative of the Mexica people.
I greatly encourage, however, to read and study trustworthy content about the original Mesoamerican religions
and narratives, as well as study other aspects of such rich and interesting cultures
