Tezcatlipoca the smoking mirror and Quetzalcoatl the feathered snake are precolombian gods

Nice colors but that's a Mayan temple; not Aztec or Tenochtitlan at all.

Both the the Aztec and Mayas did not believe it was the end of the world. The belief was that after 2012, we have reached the age of technology, so it was an end to old times but not the end of the world. The only reason that even became a thing is because people interpret their beliefs by trying to use a Westerner's view point and Western theology/mythology/culture is not the same thing as Aztec or Mayans. People are obsessed with "doomsday" concepts in our current society and this is not at all what the Aztecs or Maya people believed in. (This is what I've learned so far in college anyways)

Your picture is beautifully done! I love these two so much! ;)

You certainly right.I actually think this end of the world stuff was resurected and used for marketing purpose like the Year 2000 problem. People are afraid, so they buy stuff to try to avoid the problem.

Thx though :)

There's always going to be a new "end of the world" scare and people will always find something from a religion or culture that "proves" it's going to happen. People need to stop worrying and just live.

No problem! Kind of have an unhealthy obsession with this kind of stuff lately. haha.

"Precolombian" is actually relative to Christophe Colomb, so yeah, it's also pre-colonial of course.

Anyways, glad you like it ^^

Mon secret pour un effet vieilli: j'applique un parchemin en mode incrustation avec une faible opacité. En plus ca a l'avantage de masquer les colo un peu grossieres (la peau notamment);)

BACKGROUND BACKGROUND WHAT U GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR U ! =D

MMhhh, tu as testé de flouter le fond? A la manière d'un portrait? Perso j'aurai bien vu le bg plus bas, la base de la pyramide au niveau de l'épaule, avec plus de ciel donc et le tout en flouté ;)

Bad Boys!! :XD:

C'est juste les arbres qui sont floutés (la pyramide est nette). J'ai utilisé un brush qui est en fait un amas de petite taches floues. Ca rend tres bien pour faire les arbres au loin.
Plus proche la pyramide? Hmm peut etre. Mais il aurait alors fallut que je la détaille plus... la flemme :XD: Je la trouve bien là où elle est, lol.

Naaah justement tu ne m'as pas compwis !

Mon but était de faire un portrait et donc détacher les personnages du fond en floutant l'arrière plan ;) Ca a l'avantage de nécessiter moins de détails et donne un effet sympathoche...

Voici quelques exemples (ils sont pas super convaincant mais voila...)
