Aztec culture has influenced a lot of stories and movies around the world for its fascinating colors and unknown mysteries. For this project I created a character that would live in an ancient aztec city.
When designing the character I thought about skin color, tattoos and also the general feel of a voodoo priest with powers and knowledge. The themes his costume would have the natural elements that it should possess. He's not only a priest but also a leader and I wanted to showcase that.
