Jaguar warriors were elite military unit in the aztec army, similar to eagle warriors, they believed that dressing as the animal they would get it's strength in the battle. It wasn't an easy task to become one though, as the requirement was to have captured 12 enemies during two consecutive battles. Sacrificing them on the altar would bring much more honor to the gods than killing them in battle.
Another rough painting, still in the same mood as the previous piece. Was a fun painting.
Thanks everyone and happy new year!
