In class we were given the objective of drawing a character from an ancient culture in a Sci-Fi setting, I got the Mayan Warrior.
I decided to draw a sort of CyberPunk gang member from a dystopian future, who have moulded themselves around the Aztec aesthetic with whatever they can find.
For the weapon I had the idea of them making the iconic Mayan weapon, the Macuahuilt from scratch. Essentially the Macuahuilt was a wooden sword with obsidian blades running along its edge. making it a devastating weapon. I figured they could make their own version of the weapon with a baseball bat/cricket bat with shards of metal forged into it.
