I KNEW I REMEMBERED THAT NAME!!!!!!
ok before anyone asked ill tell ya. that name was used in an fanfiction called 'Rivers Never Die' and 'Rivers Keep Flowing' if i remeber correctly it was that spirit dragons name that was in love with BlowngWind's Cousin Jewel O'Drake and the other dragon you drew was an evil dragon that plans to destroy the sun. i didnt know it was really an god and you really did an good job it looks just like the one in the story.

It's just Nahuatl/Aztec for 'hummingbird', his full name is Huitzilpilli (meaning 'hummingbird prince'.) I can't remember the name of the god, but it started with Huitzil as well. The Aztecs uses descriptive names like a few cultures in the world do.

I have a whole family of these guys which started with Quetzalteotl in the dragonclanlands.com (well, started with the earlier draik clan, but progressed to there).

huitzilapotchli, correct? Or something to the effect of the sounds. I remember learning about that while doing a report on south american religion for spanish class. Fun times.

Not quite, Huitzilpilli is his name which means 'hummingbird prince' in nahuatl.
Huitzilpotchli is the name of the god though, who has hummingbird in his name as well. ;)

Oh, ok. So it's one of your own characters? Ok. Didn't get that at first. Blonde moment, or somethin' of the sort.

Heh, yeah. I rp feathered dragons on a dragon rp site. Quetzalteotl (not Quetzalcoatl) is my main one, a blue and white feathered dragon, and Huitzil's older sister.

I can see how it's easily confused though. Sadly I was actually trying to avoid a god's name, and completely forgot about Huitzilpochtli when I looked up the name Huitzil. It was one of those 'doh' moments.

He's not on neo, he's on the DC (dragonclanlands.com). You don't need a draik to sign up and rp there any longer, it's just a dragon rp site now. ^^

:D I was going for that tropical bird like colours. I nearly coloured him like a ruby throated hummingbird but changed my mind and just went with rich green shades.

I normally don't post comments on pictures much anymore, but I need to.

I've been noticing your dragon pictures lately, and I am very stunned by how well you draw your dragons. Of course, you draw lots of stuff good, but... xD

I love this one a lot. The colors make me think of a dense jungle.

The head is well-detailed, and the scars are awesome.

Just thought I'd drop by and post. x3

Quetzal and her family needed some new pictures. I was working on their profiles for the DC and realised that every picture I had for any of them were done years ago. :O_o:

Huitzil is a bit more camoflauged then his sister, but I just wanted to work with some very tropical greens for him.

Thanks for posting! I always love comments. ^^

Lol no problem. :D

I was checking out DC, and I really like what I see. I've always loved RPing and dragons. (Hence the username. xD)

So I've applied. Under the name Starlight-Dragon. o:

Maybe I'll see ya there! ^^

I'm still taking it slow on the RPing front, trying to get rid of the writer's block I have right now before I try moving forward. x.x

But yeah, maybe we'll see each other there! C:

I'm so in love with your Aztec based dragons. -drool- ^^ Huitzil is lovely. I definitely love the scars. <3

I have a dragon forming in my mind dubbed Yaotl...once registration is open on DC, I'll join up. Never rp'ed dragons so it should be fun, eh?

PookaWitch Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Ooooh, 'warrior', awesome. :D

I'm pretty sure that registration is always open. There are just times that it's completely, simply open, and times where you just have to post in a guest forum and be approved. *nod nod*

Really? : O
-late replies suck-
I must go check it out again. The forum said registrations temp. closed last time I checked.

Hehe. Yup. Yaotl pwns. >3
I'm thinking about making him traditionally Aztec, but then I thought; hey...I think he'd be cute as a furry dragon. -chuckle- No feathers. Just fur. -never had a dragon character- This shall be fun. Hope to see you around there. ^^
