Tezcatlipoca the Hotshot by Bigsleeves-Arts Tezcatlipoca the Hotshot by Bigsleeves-Arts
My favourite Aztec God, and the naughtiest that I know of. I tried to incorporate the whole “smoking mirror” aspect of the mythology surrounding him, and his foot that was chopped off and replaced by some weird looking prosthetic. I’m not sure if it was a stylised bone that I saw in the codex, it probably is. He’s also called the Turquoise Jaguar which is why he has all that jewelry.

I love the way you did the swirls around him. The prosthetic is interesting--like Aztec-futurism. The blend of the green, dark colours with the red colours of the bottom half of the picture makes this really stand out and gives the whole piece a very dramatic feel, which fits with Tezcatlipoca's story. His expression is great. He looks mischievous and also a bit perplexed, about being misunderstood or being in trouble.

Thank you! It does seem a bit futuristic. No wonder some people say the Aztecs and Maya were aliens. :D (Big Grin)

He's ready to get them gurls. Lenny Eyebrow Wiggle 
Its because his foot got ripped off by the earth goddess. He uses it like a foot.

He has a loincloth, I forgot to draw it peeking under. You can see he has it tho if you look at the green cloth on his hip.

I get the naughty out of him, only already those eyebrows speaking :P
But also he seems misunderstood, there is some sadness in his eyes.
His pose is in one way relaxed, laid down, but it also seems like he is crawling away backward.
Well, at least to me XD
