I haven't posted in the FF section in forever... Here is my entry for the Hurakan challenge over on http://artorder.blogspot.com/
I'd appreciate crits!
Hurakan (from wikipedia)
"Huracan (also Hurakan, in Mayan understandable as Jun Raqan "one legged") was a Mayan god of wind, storm, fire and one of the creator deities who participated in all three attempts at creating humanity. He also caused the Great Flood after the second generation of humans angered the gods. He supposedly lived in the windy mists above the floodwaters and repeated "earth" until land came up from the seas.
His name, understood as 'One-Leg', a deity of lightning with one human leg, and one leg shaped like a serpent. The name may ultimately derive from huracan, a Carib word, and the source of the words hurricane and orcan (European windstorm).
Alternative spellings are Hurakan, Harakan, Jurakan. Related deities are Tohil, Bolon Tzacab, 'Heart of Heaven' (in the Popol Vuh), Cocijo in Zapotec mythology, and Tlaloc in Aztec mythology.

Wow, I haven't posted here in forever.
Here's a mini dump or personal work, I'm trying to get interior book or card work.
For the ArtOrder Donjon Delve contest.
This one was heavily influenced by Jean Leon Gerome and John William Godward (a student of Alma-Tadema.) The focus of it was to address a critique I got at the 2010 IMC concerning my images looking like they are all made of the same stuff. Hence the use of many types of material.
