Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Strong."

Mexican El Tigre MaskI've been working on this all week. The Mexican "El Tigre" mask, which is actually representing (supposedly) a jaguar, is worn for a ceremony involving one strong guy whopping another one over the head with a knotted rope. I don't have mirrors for his eyes yet, or boar bristles.

Great one!
I love these masks!
Few years ago there was a great National Geographic article with photos of Mexican kids with masks like that and the roots of this ritual right back to the Aztecs!...

A very good-looking mask. Ambitious treatment for the prompt.

Beautiful work...the pattern, the colors, and the expressive features are all very, very cool.
