background piece by Loopydave background piece by Loopydave
I'm informed its not actually a Mayan calendar (its Mexica and technically a presentation of the fifth sun thanks for the heads up :iconchurchtea: & :icontm-1:) but here's the background piece from [link] coz a number of people asked to see it without the beautiful woman standing in front of it. Go figure.

Pen and ink on paper, painted in photoshop. You can still see some of the ink lines on this finished piece - got a bit lazy after working on it for two solid days :D

Dude, you created this masterpiece and then hid it in the background? (Head palm) I think it's great.

If the Mayans had possessed this level of awesomeness their calendar would be good for at least another three millenia.

I cant speak for pac-man, but there were points in the newest Star Wars movies that I laughed out loud at too.... but I'm not sure Lucas meant them to be funny ;)

Would you mind if I use this as a background image in a video I'm doing on 2012 (will be on YouTube). Absolutely love this piece! Of course, will give on-screen credit, however you'd want. YouTube search my name (Scott Markus) to see the kind of stuff I do on YouTube (not at all similar to what I do on dA)

Fantastic. I love how every little bit of it is something interesting or funny like a gremlin or Tintin or just a skull having a smoke.

It wasn't a skull before it started smoking, but you know how bad cigarettes are for you ;)
