My entry for the official contest Egyptians & Aztecs. I choose to side with the "Aztec team' since I believe it's less mainstream than Antique Egypt, which has already many entries in the contest. It was also an occasion for me to learn a little bit about the aztec mythology, which was completely unknown to me.
After hours and hours of brainstorming (OK, I might be exagerating a bit), I've finaly decided to portray the Aztec deity Xochiquetzal.

In Aztec mythology, Xochiquetzal was a goddess associated with concepts of fertility, beauty, and female sexual power, serving as a protector of young mothers and a patroness of pregnancy, childbirth, and the crafts practiced by women such as weaving and embroidery.

After doing some research, I've found out she is often represented with a Quetzal head helm and bird wings, hence my design.

Here are a 3D render and an artwork. I am sure some of you will recognize where the pose is from (ゝ◡╹)

Thank you very much! (*^3^)
Actually, it took me almost 4 hours to make the skin, and some details like the wings were quite tricky to do.
Thanks for the compliment, you’re really sweet!

I’ll be really pleased, but honestly, I think Canday’s and Inro‘s entries have a higher chance.

No matter the result, I had a lot of fun doing this, even if I have to admit that being positioned in the top 3 would be really amazing! (^ ♡ .̮ ♡)

I did.
Actually, I would never use someone else’s work, unless it is ‘official’ art like those from anime artbooks I used on some of my skins based on anime characters, in which case I credit the studio.
