I think tonight I must’ve broken through to some kind of parallel dimension: I’ve posted 2 pages already this weekend, and tonight in one sitting, I completed the next two. The only thing I’ve done differently lately is thumb out about five pages in advance, but apparently that spurns me to then ink and color them. I’ll admit that it probably helps that this series of pages are each 3 panels apiece, but I’ve been doing just about as much work as a 4 or 5 panel page in terms of detail and color. In any case, this is probably the first time in about a year that I’ve A. Had a buffer and B. Posted more than 2 in a week.
So recently, while researching more Aztec mythology to write into the Mudpuppy universe, I came across this:This is a ‘Xolo’ dog, or Mexican Hairless, although sources differ on what the original dog kept by the Aztecs was, as modern day Xolos are not short legged like Chihuahuas. The Aztecs kept them as pets and also frequently fattened them up to be eaten or sacrificed. They were also known to accompany Xolotl on forays to the Underworld.
Oh by the way, if you happen to be a Project Wonderful user yourself, my good friend Vas has put together some amazingly helpful PW tutorials on her website. These were invaluable. Check these out:
Thanks again, Vas.
