Well, im from Mexico and also I have lived near from teotihuacan and now I live in cancun (just a minutes of distance of "chichen itza", "tulum" and the "Riviera maya"), so I know very well the topic. And I have to say that you made a beautiful work! I can see (my personal opinion) that you mix some mayan , aztec and a little bit of toltec in your illustration... Whatever... great work! Congratulations! :)

Mind if I use this artwork for a Non-Commercial Purpose? It's perfect for my Sid Meier's Civilization V Mod. It will of course, be credited, under boosoohooo or any name you desire.

Impressive but, the bggest piramid looks more Teotihuacan than a mayan piramid (the smaller is ok).

Be careful in not confuse all-some mesoamerican civilizations, aztecs, teotihuacans or tarascans are not same than mayans, olmecs, whatever.

Gracias. :)

Chequé tu comentario, también estoy de acuerdo y lo complementas mejor que yo (no vivo cerca de piramides, pero he visto algunas ruinas en mi tierra Michoacan y mas o menos tengo una idea de lo que es una azteca de una tarasca o maya).

Creo que hasta este punto es "normal" que se confundan las culturas mesoamericanas, como no hay un... "hito" que diga que son diferentes unas de otras, los que no conocen las verán todos iguales. Esa misma confusión hay con el calendario maya con el solar azteca. =P

This is great! The water looks amazing.

Though more people should do their research before complaining: "Although it is a subject of debate whether Teotihuacan was the center of a state empire, its influence throughout Mesoamerica is well documented; evidence of Teotihuacano presence can be seen at numerous sites in Veracruz and the Maya region. The Aztecs may have been influenced by this city. Archaeological evidence suggests that Teotihuacan was a multi-ethnic city, with distinct quarters occupied by Otomi, Zapotec, Mixtec, Maya and Nahua peoples. The name Teōtīhuacān was given by the Nahuatl-speaking Aztec centuries after the fall of the city. The original name of the city is unknown, but it appears in hieroglyphic texts from the Maya region as puh, or "Place of Reeds." This suggests that the Maya of the Classic period understood the city as a Place of Reeds similar to other Postclassic Central Mexican settlements that took the name Tollan, such as Tula-Hidalgo and Cholula."
