A quick 30 minute doodle while on work. I keep thinking about the fact that Miles gets older, more wrinkly, starting to look like his father and then they just change Phoenix’s hair and it’s done. I love it.
And those glasses, they just do things with me.
The Mayan Astrology Signs are divided into 19 zodiac signs in an astrological system that was developed by ancient Mayans, based on their Gods. There is a lot of mystery surrounding Mayan astrology that persists to this day. What is known is that the Haab Calendar used 19 Mayan astrology signs to represent the movement of the days throughout the year. The Haab calendar is the only Mayan calendar that follows a standard (approximately) 365 day year. It is the one used for Mayan Zodiac astrology, and the one referenced below for each Maya Zodiac Symbol. The Haab has 18 months, each with 20 days, and a final 19th month that consists of 5 “nameless days” at the end.
