you may have noticed that I changed my username (again). Since I was using my real name, I felt compelled to change it, because I got married on Saturday and now wear a new name. :woohoo::wedding:

Me and my family are doing well, the little one is starting to crawl and already can pull herself up on her knees. I'm so proud. :cuddlechild:

Time for drawing has been even more scarce because of wedding preperations. Now, after I get all the administrative stuff done that comes with marrying someone and changing one's name I hope I'll find more time to draw again. I HAVE been drawing, but mostly for my patrons ^^;
I still haven't figured out a good mix between what to post for everyone and what to post for patrons... that's really hard to decide when you don't have much time to draw. So I've been posting most stuff for patrons only lately. Sorry.

I have been asked if BTOM pages will be posted only for patrons - that's not true. Patrons get to see works in progress and get to see the finished pages ONE WEEK BEFORE everybody else, but updates will still be posted for everyone on sj and here, so don't worry. Patrons get to see sketches and wips for BTOM and other stuff that I don't post anywhere else, though.

If you're interested in becoming a patron and supporting me, you can head over to my Patreon here.Patreon Icon

Young Itztli (~15 yrs) offering incense. Happy days.

This was originally drawn in a reddish color, which I actually like better than this one. You can see it here:…
Jealousy by TashinaKalmbach
- or The Fate of Malinali

This was done very fast and is a bit experimental, and I tweaked it a lot until I more or less liked it. :/

Here's the story:

It happened maybe 8 years ago (from the point in the comic), when Itztli was about 17-18 years old.  Itztli had been under Tez' patronage since the age of 8 or 9 years old (see


), and in the years following he had received standard education in the calmecac as well as education by the priests. He had devoted his life to Tez, but he learned to be a warrior as well as a priest. Among Itztli's family's neighbors lived a girl, Malinali, who he fell in love with. They talked and went to festivities together, danced and went for walks in the gardens. Tez watched with growing displeasure, and when finally Itztli went to ask the god's leave to take a wife despite being half priest, he declined, and requested to have the girl sacrificed to him as punishment. Itztli obeyed, heartbroken. Malinali accepted her fate, since the god himself had requested it, and Itztli swore to himself and Tez to never marry and become Tezcatlipoca's highpriest.

uh, I hope that was interesting to some ^^; it's more or less canon, even if it probably doesn't make historically correct sense and is in no way necessary for the story *shrug*, I just like the drama and the emotional abuse Tez is subjecting Itztli to :P
because I'm mean. :evillaugh:
(But I'm a sucker for happy endings, so I will make him happy eventually ... ... someday...)
Wedding day by TashinaKalmbach
Wedding day

In the light of my recent wedding, have Mic and Metz doing the thing! <3

The Aztec marriage ritual included the knotting of the clothes of the couple. I think that's a nice tradition, a very meaningful metaphor.  :)

Auf welche Seiten man denn nicht alles landet... :D  War ich doch gerade noch Last-Minute-recherchieren für den morgigen Azteken-Vortrag, so lande ich durch das Googlen von "chocolatl" doch glatt auf deiner Seite. Und finde sogar Nützliches xD
Dementsprechend lasse ich nicht nur Lob und Anerkennung für deine tollen Comissions, sondern auch ein Dankeschön an dich hier :'D
