Based on a few Mayan figurines found in the Island of Jaina and the surrounding inland, dating from around 600 to 800 CE.
Whilst I took a few liberties in regards to speculatively mixing certain attributes from some figurines and applying them to others for aesthetic effect, there is little complete uniformity among the Jaina figurines. Still, considering the frequency of certain attributes such as blue feathered “tlahuiztli” suits, collar decorations, blue coloured shields, red loincloths, among others; One could presume that these warriors represent a regional style for the fighting nobility pertaining to the western Yucatan (northern Campeche) area, if not a specific site.

The warrior to the right retains these distinctive attributes, while the warrior to his immediate left has his standard cotton armour, and distinctive facial scarring.  Both present head elongation, a common practice among Mayan nobility.

Be sure to watch me and check out my tumblr and facebook as well, for more of my work! I am open to commisions, feel free to contact if your interested!

Hi! Nice work! I have some issue with people using my work for proyects though, If you are planning on selling this game for any cost then i must kindly reject the offer. If this is for exclusive personal use then it would have my blessing.

Hello,

We are not planning to sell the game, but we must be honest, and it is not going to be as personal use. We want to upload it to Google Play (for free, but it would be uploaded). We would give you full credits in that case.
We need to be honest and we would respect your decision.

Lot of thanks and congrats for your amazing art.
