Mummy Re-Design by DylanPierpont Mummy Re-Design by DylanPierpont
It's been a while so I figured it's time for a new update. I've had this one posted on my site (dylanpierpont.com/) for a while now but i thought I'd share it here to set up for a huge art dump I'll have coming soon.

This concept was spawned during one of the weekly sketchgroups I do with a bunch of friends of mine. Usually we just do our own thing and work on whatever, school projects, commissions, personal sketches, etc. But this week we all decided to work off a prompt and do a re-design of classic movie monsters. I chose to do the Mummy but made an effort to design outside of the typical Egyptian setting. So I thought of other cultures around the world that mummify their dead and landed on ancient Aztec/Mayan/Incan/Central-South Americas.

This was also a little experiment for me in painting with color directly rather than glazing over a value study. It's still very mono-chromatic but I feel like I learned a bit during the process.

Thanks for checking! Should have a new video tutorial and a host of new images to show soon enough!

::EDIT::

Re-vamped this guy a bit over a year later. Still could used a bit of a design overhaul but It's time to move onto newer stuff :)

Do you know anything about Aztec culture? that thing doesn't have anything that resembles Aztec clothing or weaponry. And not all mummies (specially not in México/South America) were preserved with bandages. Learn to México.

Thanks Dylan. I will look into that. I am not sure why you are getting a harsh response from some on this piece. Not every piece has to be historically accurate. If it looks good, who cares. It's art. Keep it up. It is the artist's decision what direction he/she wants to go.

Looks like might be ready to kill some Conquistadors or drag them onto a nearby Aztec temple and sacrifice them to Quetzalcoatl.
