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.
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...
