Journal[[DON'T CLICK IT!]]
UPDATE March 2, 2017: Okay so apparently there's been an uptick in activity on this journal and while I don't really have anything further to say I do ask that you read the whole journal before asking questions as I think a lot of questions are already answered within the context of this journal. 
I know people are still panicking about this site but don't -- Just sign the petition and move on --
Don't file reports on it, don't go searching on it, just sign the petition and be done. The less revenue and traffic that PayPoster gets the better. 
Okay so I have seen and been noted about my work being posted and 'sold' on the website -- http:// payposter. com/ DON'T CLICK THE LINK If you find it -- Seriously... Don't.

Finished Not Perfect
I'd like to share a mantra from artist Jake Parker,  for those who struggle with their artworks: 'Finished Not Perfect.' 
It's a good mantra to remind myself everytime I'm struggling to finish a piece of illustration that I've started. I hope I can do the same for my personal comic projects that I'm reluctant to continue when I become indecisive or fickle minded with the source material. 
 It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.

Quetzalcoatl and...
..his next digitations Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli and Itztlacoliuhqui :P

No, I mean of course the next gods he turns/changes into, while - most interestingly - still remaining an existing god in the Aztec pantheon. I think what's really amazing (but complicating things for me) is that the Aztecs still believed in all these gods existing simultaneously despite them dying to become another god... I guess the myths for those other god's origins are not exclusively to do with Quetz, there were probably other stories where Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli (the fiery fellow) isn't Quetz reemerging from Mictlan with a vengenance after being burned alive because Tez embaressed him. I guess that's a story believed by those who associated Quetz with a legendary Toltec priest going by his name.

Anyway, </span>apparently he spent 4 days in Mictlan after burning to forge arrows before emerging as the Morning Star. Imagine, it's like Quetzalcoatl thought "ugh, why the f*** did I burn myself?! just you wait, no more Mister Nice God, I need f***ing weapons, the next guy who upsets me gets an arrow in his face!" and starts forging arrows?? I think it's funny as hell xD As you can see, he's a fierce fellow. Although, trying to shoot the sun and getting your own arrow in the head for it... I don't know, maybe a bit too fierce for his own good, eh.
After that he wasn't fierce any longer, he kind of died again and became cold, he became the god of frost and winter, Itztlacoliuhqui, who actually has a f***ing arrow stuck in his forehead. I love Aztec mythology.

I drew these for my patreon users in December 2016, but thought I could share them now. They will not appear bodily in BTOM, but I wanted to have their concepts laid out for me to come back to for whatever reason. Their depictions are inspired by codex paintings found on their respective wiki pages.

Have you ever considered posting your work on Tapastic?
TashinaKalmbach Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
I never thought about it, that site kind of appeared without me realizing it. What I've seen of it so far seems to be more suited for episodic comic strips, or am I wrong?
Preyote Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2017  Student Digital Artist
A majority of uploaders do episodic uploads but all in all it doesn't really matter. I personally think it's art and plot that's what makes the comics good there and you've definitely got it :)

I looked into it today and it still actively encourages comic makers to use a format that works well with mobile devices, and I think BTOM doesn't really qualify. Also I want to redraw the prologue, so it wouldn't make much sense to post it somewhere new before that is done. I am considering it for future comics, though, I might try and do a new comic which suits the vertical reading format better. :)
