Taino civilization scene by AsterMoody Taino civilization scene by AsterMoody
A scene from the Taino life. Tainos are native people living in Caribbeans islands such as Puerto Rico, Cuba, etc, before the settlement by Columbus.

This changes from my usual style as the commissioner deeply wanted something chibi and cute. There was many versions before this "final" one was done. I learnt a lot in the process and I didn't know anything about the Tainos before Luis contacted me. I'm happy I'm finally done!

This scene was commissioned by :iconlutopia-game-company: who runs a project to make a game called "Tribal Pride" which deals with many awesome ancient civilizations. I hope it gets released soon. Check it out!

Critiques about art or historical accuracy are welcome; The latter ones will receive a particular interest and would probably lead to modifications. I made research about the said civilization, but I'm not an historian and the data I accessed was limited and sometimes contradictory.

I got inspiration from the first draft made by Jorgito [link]

I love this picture! It truely captures that the Tainos were more happy,optomistic creatures and were very loving. The true reason why the Spaniards took this as an advantage for themselves. But what I question is if the Tainos wore that many feathers due to the fact that they used more simple things as jewlery like sea shells and stones. Though seeing that it was the chief, they were known to have head dresses. BUT, again, the chief had many wives, so there might of been lack of wearing feathers for his wife/or wives. Though being Puerto Rican my self, I just adore this picture and drew a taino picture aswell, though its not every accurate to the history either xD I might change it so that it will be.

This is long x_X
