During his yearly festival, the corpses of human sacrifices were carefully flayed, and the skins were worn by his priests for the entirety of the 20 day celebration, after which they were removed and carefully stored to symbolize rebirth and the arrival of spring.

Very nice work.
I don't know much about Aztec culture, so the little back story really helps to make me more interested in the topic.
That aside, this is a beautiful rendering of the Red Tezcatlipoca.
I like the inks!
I really like your gallery btw, especially the fact that you don't shy away from backgrounds. Excellent work!
I like how you use colors. Your style and colors seem to go well together. Plus your lines and shapes have a good flow and energy to them. (they remind me of that one animation thingy, Afro Samurai in a way).
Nice and kewl in a way I don't mind. Obscure mythology- well, obscure in that most people learn about classical greek gods before hearing about the Aztec ones- is always kewl to see reference in a new, different style.
The Greek Myths are important for their importance to western culture. They do get overanalyzed, but at least somebody is reading it. Of course, discovering new mythologies are fun cuz they can add to one's understanding and even inspire new ideas.
One of the many reasons I like the bloody mesoamerican mythologies.
This is AWESOMEEE!!
Sorry for bein' late, boy : I'm working on your art trade,(just.. wait, please )
Excellent work, your style is simply amazing!!
Gooosh! It's so stunning!!
I can't wait to see yours! (no rush though- take your time!)
