Something Wicked This Way Come by JessiBeans Something Wicked This Way Come by JessiBeans
This one took FOREVER... And I want to fix it, but that will have to be later, with fresh eyes... I am only making a mess at this point.

For the (sort-of) Annual ConceptArt.org All-Girl Thunderdome this year. Topic was "Something Wicked This Way Comes..." which was probably the most awesome topic ever. :heart:

I based mine VERY loosely on the 2012 doomsday cult built around the Mayan Calendar... some kind of horsewoman (snakewoman) of the apocalypse and Quetzalcoatl and a little human sacrifice. Trying to make myself consider whole illos and backgrounds and all that stuff...

Go see all the awesome work here: [link]

Most people doesn´t know about it, but sacrifices by Mayans were for the Sun God, they were afraid Sun will never rise again. I like what you do. Quetzalcoatl was a GOD. But Spanish conquers thinking always on the Devil, they never stop to ask what the snake means for the people. The snake was sign of fertility.

Beautiful piece.

You know there is a belief that the Mayan's weren't actually predicting the world would end in 2012 with their calenders, but that the fellow who originally worked the first one out simply got tired of continuing it when he got so far into the future that nobody he knew would ever see it - and nobody else had the mad math skills to continue? :D
