Of course! This is a blog I found online with a nice number of maya imagery and articles that can also take you to other resources:
And this website is about Maya writing and numbers:
I usually navigate through the wikipedia pages for a specific maya god or another subject I’m interested in (like bloodletting in the maya world) and that takes me deeper to other less known gods and resources.
I saw a number of books on maya archeology a while ago but I couldn’t get my hands on them because they are pretty expensive and I had just moved to this apartment, if I see them again I’ll try to get them and write a review or something.
I don’t know if you have read the Popol Vuh, tho, there is a lot in there about the maya myths of creation. Also recently I got a book called La civilización de los antiguos mayas, which seems really interesting and has quite a few images of ruins and glyphs.
Movie-wise the only maya influenced movie I can recall right now is Apocalypto, it gives you a fairly good idea of the maya view of the world and universe and I think it’s great visually, it did a great job translating the carvings and images of warriors into actual costumes, and you get to listen to the dialogue in one of the maya dialects.
I’ve seen a number of documentaries lately that you might find useful: The Red Queen (discovery channel) the lost king of the maya and cracking the maya code (pbs I think?) ancient maya (history channel) dawn of the maya (natgeo) amongst others, a quick search for “maya documentaries” will give you plenty more titles.
The references I use the most for developing my concepts for comics (gasp, foreshadowing) are a large collection of pictures, articles and cross-referenced descriptions of gods I’ve found online through the past couple of years.
Hope that helps!
Early concept of a character I affectionately call Dark Horse.
She’s a self made champion who grabbed a very dark and evil magic by the throat and told it it was gonna be her bitch from now on or perish forever. She bends it’s power and uses it for good but it has a habit of putting a dark twist to her personality from time to time. It also can take a lot out of her in which she needs to recharge by sleeping, eating and drinking A LOT. In the middle of a big battle she can become famished or really sleepy or thirsty. She can eat and drink more than a handfull of men combined.
She’s tall, dark and handsome. About 5’11 and well built. She’s strong, extremely confident, a bit of a flirt, and can be very motivated or very lazy.
Hello, writerly friends!
I got a bunch of questions asking for advice on revision/editing (of which I have plenty) so I thought I would make a TOP 5! The above are my top 5 tips for revising/editing your book. I believe there are plenty of awesome resources out there for editing, but I wanted to talk about a few things that are seldom mentioned!
I hope you all find this post helpful~ ♥︎
