I have a special folder on my computer... no, not the porn folder, another one ! A folder where I keep all the pretty inspiring pictures I find on the internet (mostly on holy Tumblr) and go through when I need a boost. I recently stumbled upon a pretty Quetzalcoatl and thought it would be nice to make my own version.
Babe was supposed to be half-snake, half-bird and definitely mythologic. I tried to give him a darker skin but it wouldn't look good with the greenish parts of the snake. I used fire tones for his mane and his wings, in the end he looks inspired by the pokemon Moltres. ^^" But he's Quetzalcoatl and if you mess up his name, he's gonna mess you up ! ^__~
