X is for Xiuhcoatl

My Alphabeast this week: Xiuhcoatl

Time for a good ol' Aztecan god. His name translates to turquoise serpent and is known as an embodiment of the dry season. For some reason I couldn't get the idea of cardboard out of my mind, the driest thing of things, so I tried to incorporate that with a texture. It's fun to go apeshit with colors, I should do that more often.

W is for White Walker

My Alphabeast this week: the White Walkers

So we're only 12 days away from the second season of Game of Thrones and I decided to start doing a doodle a day of the characters until we get there. In order to stay on track I realized for W I could do the White Walkers so now everyone is happy! EVERYONE!

Here are the others so far:

The Hound

and I should have a few more post for each day in the next week or two. And yes, I am huge dumb nerd.

V is for Víðópnir

My alphabeast this week: Víðópnir

Here's an interesting one; a giant thunder chicken from Nordic mythology that guards the world tree. It was described as being a giant rooster that takes the colors of lightning and is seen as a symbol of returning life. I figured with all these descriptions it'd be fun to draw and go nuts with the colors WHICH I DID! enjoy.
