Popcorn! by Mytforskare Popcorn! by Mytforskare
Sorry it's been a while since this comic updated... again... but I have been so very busy these past few weeks preparing my portfolio for an interview to get into an animation course at university. I could only work on this one a bit at a time!

Aside from eating it, the Aztecs threaded popcorn on strings for decorations and used to make it by heating dried maize with sand, so I thought it would be a nice idea to make a WNUT strip featuring delicious popcorn... and the introduction to a few more gods!

Being the sun god, Tonatiuh gets a little hotter than others when his cheeks are burning, not to mention the fact that having the fire of the sun in you is going to make things a little sticky if you're carrying a basket of popping corn! ;)

The two lovely ladies are Tezcatlipoca's wives of which he had 4 in total, the sexy bastard! Chicomecoatl, also known by the name of Xilonen when dealing with unripened corn, was the Aztec corn goddess, and said to be Tezcatlipoca's favourite wife... I gave her a slightly cheeky side, not to mention the fact that if it's fun, she will to exactly what Tezca wishes. The second goddess in this strip is Tlaloc's older sister, Huixtocihuatl, who was the goddess of salt. It is said that she was granted power over salt water when the Tlalocs tried to drown her... that must have been some family squabble! Huixto will not put up with anyone's crap, which must prove to be a mighty challenge seen as she is married to Tezca... the ultimate troll of the Aztec pantheon.

Hope you like it!

Awwww thank you so much! :iconohyoublushplz: That means so much to me!

I've started on the next comic now - I couldn't draw for over a week because I was visiting my grandparents in Sweden and they have no internet, so they have been delayed! XD I'm making a 'Christmas Special.'

I'm half Swedish! My mum is Swedish and my family goes to see my grandparents and family out there at least once a year since I live in England.

Hehehehe! This makes me so hungry!

Tezca: >.> Hmmm... I need to make sure I have enough... *Counts three pieces and stares at you in deep thought* Oh fine, there!! *Plonks a sack full of popcorn into your arms* Now, you listen to your Tezca... I expect something fitting in return, babe... Perverted Suggestive

Nana: That was so embarrassing and mean! If he wanted me to heat it up to make popcorn I would have done it for him! Yes... poor, poor me... *Sniff*

But where's the goddess of caramel? Popcorns are better with caramel! :p

Yaay, thank you!
Hahahah! Tezca wants salt! ;) Not that it will happen, since Tezcatlipoca never seems to have produced any children which is a feat of its own since he's a majestic womanizer, but any baby born of their nightly activities shall become the next god or goddess of caramel, on your request! I was brought up on salty popcorn, so I think preferences are just what you get used to really!

Making Popcorn!! Wonderful idea!! I like Tezcatlipoca's facial expression. And our Tona is lovely!

Thank you! IKR?? Even though Tezca made it in a manipulative, troll like way by getting his wife to use Tona! Popcorn is still poporn! >v<
I love their facial expressions in this one too, I must say! I am rather pleased with them and Tezca's face just has to be my favourite at the end! Pffft! Sorry I didn't have time to type all the words out - I submitted it ridiculously late last night!

Omg I can see Blake doing something similar but he is stopped just in time by a pissed of Miranda lol (sorry I got done reading a blog full of Miranda Lambert tweets)

Tezcatlipoca you are a damn conniving manipulative bastard! No wonder everyone likes you and well you're second on my list of fave gods(actually can't really pick since I also list Tona) and Quetz is my fave.

I really do enjoy Tona in this comic and in our rps.

YAY! I don't know half of what I wrote for that at the end... I was half dead! Pffft! And then the file was too big for tumblr so I shall have to split it later. What matters is that I finished it... I had to get it done last night so that my dad could print it at his work for my portfolio as they have a super awesome printer and my one is getting near to a decade old hahaah!

Tezca's such a sexy bastard, I KNOW! X"D And he just wanted to do that to Tona for a kick... and of course there's a reason why she's his favourite wife... she gets up to a bit of mischief with him when he wants it!
AWWWWWW... I'm turning everyone into little Tona fangirls! >v< He's such an underrated god and I'm so happy that you like my version of him... it was sort of risky... I invented his personality without having read or seen any other person's take on Tona, but damn he's a complicated little god!
