:star:Inspired by:
- Documentary "Ancient X-Files; Mayan Underworld"
- Waters of Xibalba by Gone-Batty & ElysianOrchid.

Detailed Close Up --> [link]

I've had this idea for a long time, ever since I watched the Maya Underworld documentary. This guy went to these cenotes, and some actually seemed to resemble what they describe for Xibalba (or the road to it). And I kept remembering this really small road inside one of the cenotes, which is what I tried to draw here. (Though I made it a little wider.)
Weirdly enough it looked way different in my head. (but then again all my drawings do..x.x ) But I do like the end result.:aww:

If you've been watching me you should recognize Devi, and if you're wondering about the other two characters.. If you look closely enough I'm sure you can figure out who they resemble. ;)

The mood of that picture is absolutely sick (in a positive way of course)! o.
The lighting and the choice of colours aswell as the expressions on the characters' faces - just amazing!

The water looks totally stunning. So shiny and magical... I wanna take a swim there. :XD:
Great job on the characters, too. The lighting on them fits them perfectly into the background, and all the details turned out really well (faces, eyes, hair, hands...). Just wow. ^^

ok . if that is Knuckles , his hair should be red right ?

Coraleana Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
well it is, but since the water is blue and glowing, and he's in it, that obviously affects his colors.
