lost gods: first post: chaac (in progress)

first of a new series. similar to the weird kreatures concept, the idea is to create a series of illustrations depicting ancient deities based solely on textual descriptions and my own experiences/memories/interpretations. to reimagine and not draw from preexisting visual portrayals. new ideas.

chaac - (also spelled chac or, in classic mayan, chaahk) is the name of the maya rain deity. with his lightning axe, chaac strikes the clouds and produces thunder and rain. chaac corresponds to tlaloc among the aztecs.
