Feathered Serpent by Kerneinheit Feathered Serpent by Kerneinheit
EDIT: changed the pic a bit, gave it a little more colours, it was too...white...

Quetzalcoatl - the ancient mesoamerican deity.
In this story, he is one of the many gods, who left Earth, as the religions changed and humans eventually forgot about them... No one really knows, where they went. Some say that the "good" gods went to travel to other worlds, others say, that they fell asleep somewhere in other dimensions, waiting for their time to come yet again. The evil ones were imprisoned in other worlds for eternity.
This is my take on Quetzalcoatl, how I imagine him.

hi i'm making a trading card game and i was wondering if i could use this drawing for a card i will give credit where it is deserved and plus its a easy way to spread your art plus you can still use them for your project the card game is called Paragon Galaxy the concept is a galaxy built where all these worlds exist for the perfect galaxy . The galaxy will grow and grow until this perfection is formed

The only evil Deity is Ragnarok (renamed from Loki, Apophis, Wormwood, etc.).
You did a good job coloring the feathered serpent, tho'.

Wow, I love how you've drawn Quetzalcoatl! I've just been trying to design my own version myself, but I think this picture has probably changed my thought on doing so.

It's just plain awesome, thanks so much for posting this picture up onto deviantART!
