Day 3: Quetzalcoatl

This is Quetzalcoatl, the Meso-American god. He was worshiped by the Aztec and Maya as well as other cultured of Central and South America. He's been depicted in several different form, but I kinda prefer the feathered serpent.

The first two drawings were cleaned up a little in photoshop before I put it up here. Today I decided to leave the page raw. The doodle in the top left corner was where I was trying to figure out positioning. Also, I wrote "day 2" in the top right corner. This drawing was supposed to be for yesterday, but he wasn't done in time. I was influenced by the way Gustav Dore drew his creatures as well as original Meso-American art.
