“Mictlanteuctli, Great Lord, a sign! A sign from within thy black cave! Iä! Tonatiuh-Metztli! Cthulhutl! Command, and I serve!”
H.P. Lovecraft, The Electric Executioner

"Mictlantecuhtli usually appears as a skeleton of bleached white bones with red, bloody spots. He is often festooned with owl feathers, paper head ornaments and banners, and wears a collar of extruded eyeballs.
Mary Miller & Karl Taube, An Illustrated Dictionary Of the Gods and Symbols Of Ancient Mexico and the Maya

The underworld, a dangerous place known as Mictlan, is ruled by the devious skeletal god Mictlantecuhtli, Lord of Mictlan"
Karl Taube,
Aztec and Maya Myths


  1. Looks pretty cool. Personally I find it very hard to draw skeletons.

    1. Yeah, they're annoying but they look so cool when they're done!

  2. Hey, just came across your blog. Love the creatures, the weirder the better!

    I've got a similar one, although my approach is not as systematic as yours. Check it out if you feel like it.

    Anyhow, keep up the insanity!
