Aztec Tango by Manwe-Varda Aztec Tango by Manwe-Varda
:bulletred: I'm still in a Tezca-Xochi mood :D
I think tango is a perfect dance for them. :)

:bulletblue: Once again it's kind of "speed painting" so, it's far to be perfect, especially skin ^^;

Alternate version with a more "heavy" background can be found here: varda-tlipoca.tumblr.com/image…

Tezcatlipoca and Xochiquetzal  are precolombian gods

I love this painting, and the way you depict them. Both of them have beautiful bodies!

Any chance you could do one of an Aztec Priestess performing a human sacrifice?

Heh, certainly an interesting picture there, two old Aztecian gods having a dance... :aww:
Very colourful pic there, and I love the shading.

Interesting names they have there, too. That old Nahuatl language certainly has some unusual words. Wonder what they mean... I can make out "quetzal" (feathers) at least...

Thank you! I'm glad you like my design of Aztec deities!

Well, Tezcatlipoca means "smoking mirror", Xochi means "flower" and Quetzal is indeed "feather" :nod:

Heh, nice. :aww:
Yeah, I only picked up one or two words. I'm somewhat interested in word etymologies and I'd done a little research when I was creating a name for a new dragon-guardian character I was developing. :)

I really like the dynamics between the two, here!
And seriously, speed painting can be very fun. :)
I actually prefer the 'alternate' version on Tumblr, probably because I have a love for darker colors, haha.
Well done! :clap:

Thank you! :D
Yeah, and it's a considerable gain of time!

I really could'nt choose so I kept both. But I think I prefere this one a little bit more: looks like an old photo :)

Pas mal du tout ^^
J'aime bien la version avec le fond foncé, ça donne un air apocalyptique à cette danse, comme s'ils prenaient en peu de bon temps avant d'aller semer destruction X)

Ah oui, c'est une idée de lecture! :) En plus on dirait qu'ils marchent sur des braises :D
J'arrivais vraiment pas à me décider entre les 2 versions, mais celle-ci les met plus en valeur je trouve.

C'est sûr qu'avec un fond clair, ils ressortent plus au vu de leur teint basané.

Ps: euh pourquoi il a une jambe ultra chelou Tez? (Quand je dis Tez je ne peux pas m'empêcher de penser à Taz XD)

Je ne l'avais jamais dessiné jusque là mais selon la légende, il s'est fait arracher le pied en créant la terre et à la place il s'est mis un mirroir d'obsidienne: mythologica.fr/aztec/pic/tezca…

Lol Tezca est un peu moins hyperactif :XD:
