El Hombre Elote - The Corn Man by Shi-Gu El Hombre Elote - The Corn Man by Shi-Gu
Corn Man, a hero for the kids, and for the luxuries obtained from being a hero.
Is he trully a hero though? or does he deceive people with his corny speeches in order to achieve his true goals?
Maybe Donaji will be able to uncober the dirty secret behind the mysterious yet fabulous Corn Man!

My new original character for Donaji & Itzcacalotl's adventures. Corn Man was born like that, so he's actually made of corn, based on the fact that according to mesoamerican myth, human beings are made of corn, and how in prehispanic codexes, pieces of corn were drawn with faces.
There were no real corn men in aztec myth though.
His weapon is a Quauhololli, some sort of war mace with a spherical shape, it wasn't that popular with aztec people, but many other mesoamerican cultures used it in battle. It has obsidian "tumors" around the mace area.
Donaji does get very irritated at Corn Man because of his attitude, calling her "little girl" and disregarding her as a competent fighter. She can't stand his corn puns neither.

Did this a while ago, but I just had a chance to add color today... maybe I shouldn't even be doing this though.
I have A BUNCH of other drawings I hope to upload soon.

Gracias!
La única manera de intimidar al hombre elote es comiendo elotes frente a él, un tanto traumatizante xD

Y yo que pensaba que el hombre elote sería por eso más tiernito...

Pero me gustó el diseño, un poco como una parodia de un héroe, con la misma parafernalia pero un poco burlesca que puede dar una pista de quién es en realidad.

Jajaja, buena referencia. Realmente es un elote tierno, porque tiene jilote xD

Básicamente por eso mismo le puse la capa :D
