Dude, where is the Lake or the bridges? Isn't that what they fought on? Oh well, kudos to you, anyways for capturing an epic moment in one of the most tragic downfalls. I like how the guy in the air's probably thinking, "For Huitzilpochtil!"
The painting is just roughly based on that conflict. The only thing i looked up was the armors and the temple in the background. I actually dont really know a lot about it to be honest. Capturing a moment of an intense battle was what i was after with this image and i hope i succeeded Thanks man.
i love it! you managed to capture the gritiness of the battle. love how you captured the steeliness of the armor. my only crit would be to extend the canvas size higher, to get a full view of the leaping warrior, as him getting cut off is pretty jarring to the eyes, and maybe tilt the horizon line ever so slightly for an unsettling feeling.
