Cihuamiztontli by SaiyaGina Cihuamiztontli by SaiyaGina

Cat Lady (literally)


I'm not a genius in nahuatl language =B, this is a bit old artwork, from last april.

This is my contribution for :iconkingdom-carousel:'s Charity Artbook, I'm so glad to be part of this book, and all entries look so amazing that I'm a bit ashamed of now doing something as awesome as them =P

I never did something prehispanic related, it was so fun to play drawing the jaguar, ocelot, axolotl and quetzal, proudly mexicans! I wondered how Mexico would be today without being conquered by Spain (A major chaos, you shouldn't keep animals that big in that room!)

I really liked my drawing, but just after sending it to print it, I didn't like the composition, hahaha too much dead space in the upper part =S

I LOVE YOU FOR PUTTING THAT SALAMANDER FISH THING IN THE TANK IN THE BACKGROUND (IDK what it's actually called xD Sorry)

Anyways this is a beautiful picture, the lighting is fantastic. c: I love the big cat's expression. Amazing work on the girl too :D

Sin exagerar.....this is one of the most beautiful illustrations and "imaginings" of what the Aztec world would be today, that I have ever seen!!  I wish you could do a series of what other pre-hispanic nations (Olmec, Zapotec, Mayan, etc) would be like in this imaginary historical tangent... Make twelve of them and you got an amazing calendar that EVERY MEXICAN including me would love to buy and give away as present!!  Awesome Art, I just became a fan!
