Xochiquetzal

A character concept I've been working with for a little while now. My interpretation of "Xochiquetzal"


Aztec goddess associated with the concepts of beauty, love, arts, fertility, Sexual pleasure and desire. Patroness of lovers, sex workers, artisans, painters.


I think that if someone were to bring her back to our era, she'd genuinely LOVE the concept of NSFW art.


If you want to keep things simple, you can refer to her as "Xochi" or "Xochitzin" as you see fit. According to my research, in ancient Nahuatl the suffix "-tzin" was used as an honorific, meaning something along the lines as "beloved, honored, respected" very appropriate if you're directing yourself to a goddess.


If I had to compare it with something, it would be close to how Japanese people use the honorific "-Sama"

Well, even without any NSFW work of her on the page, at least you didn't choose to do the Flayed God

:P

I imagine there isn't, I think it's not a particularly popular myth. On my part, I was still settling on the design, so I didn't went crazy right away.

Nice work on her, do more work on Xochiquetzal

Linkerluis responds:

Thanks! I hope I get to do more in the future.
