THE NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR / LA NOCHE DEL JAGUAR by DanielTeran THE NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR / LA NOCHE DEL JAGUAR by DanielTeran
This is a personal illustration I just finished, I called The night of the Jaguar, kind a like smaill tribute to the prehispanic civilizations here in mexico. The background research for the image references was very inspiring, so these jaguars may resamble not to much the actual animals in nature but more the figures and art sculpture made from those people to represent these animals, specially the way of their heads, very inspiring artistic culture tradition. I try to give the feeling of a mix of the past and the present way of life by mixing all the buildings stacked up and the surreal flying jaguars. The charaters are the riders of the jaguars or "jaguar warriors" protectors of the sacred ancient fire.  I wanted to do something more in this surreal fantasy kind of art from a long time but thankfully I have had a lot of editorial illustrations to do lately, anyway hope you like it. Cheers from Mexico.
