The Omens of Moctezuma Picture

Based on a drawing from a while ago, and made to keep up the practice of digital painting (with a wacom tablet plus photoshop), here's my latest illustration, titled "THE OMENS OF MOCTEZUMA" - based on characters which I created between 2003-2004, when I was 9-10 years old, and in turn inspired on mexica/aztec & spanish tales concerning the first contacts between the conquistadores & the mexican civilization, the first conflicts, the proccess of war and the early colonial period, loosely following descriptions from Bernardino de Sahagún's Florentine Codex and adapting it to a personal symbolism, as well drawing some inspiration from the Revelation of John of Patmos (the "four horrors" here ascribed are parallels to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse).
