Darkrai nierika by HappySquarrel Darkrai nierika by HappySquarrel
No habia podido hacer nada por la escuela >.<U...
Primero una pequeña definición de "nierika", nierika significa el don de ver según los huicholes, los huicholes son un grupo indigena de aqui de México que me encanta... Luego haré un journal sobre ellos...
En fin los nierikas pueden hablar de muchas cosas la gran parte del tiempo hablan de rituales o entidades que ellos consideran tienen poder...
Lo adapté a PKMN por que los legendarios son algo muy parecido a las cosas que se adoraban antes y la verdad a mi no me gusta mucho el enfoque cristano que muchos ponen... entonces yo le dí un enfoque huichol, más lindo (por lo menos para mí)
El nierika de arriba dice esto...
Ese al que ustedes llaman Darkrai es Takutsi Iyari Yiwi "Nuestro hermano mayor de corazón oscuro" sus cantos ocasionan pesadillas en las noches de luna nueva (esquina derecha parte de arriba) y la unica forma de poder salir de ellas es llamar aun chaman que tenga un muvieri "flecha botiva" con una pluma lunar (la esquinita de la izquierda en la parte de abajo), para que sus cantos no se escuchen en las casas vasta con poner una jícara pintada con Uxa y dentro de ella poner maíz pinto, peyote y plumas (esquinita derecha parte de abajo)...
Una vez al año se le deve ofrendar peyote, maíz, flechas, o sea casi lo mismo que lo de arriba (esquina izquierda parte de arriba)...
Bueno eso es todo :D...
Espero les guste...

I culdn't drew anything this week, exams are horrible >.<U...
First a little definition of "nierika" nierika means the gift of seeing by the Huichol people, the Huichol are an indigenous group of Mexico here that I love ... I will make a journal about them later :3...
Finally a nierika could talk to you about many things, but much of the time you can see stuff about rituals or entities that they believe have power ...
I adapted to the legendary PKMN that are much like the things that people believe before; the truth is that I don't really like taht lots of people put a cristian interpretation of this animals ... then I gave them a focus in Huichol culture (just for being moar interesting)
This nierika says this...
That thing that you call Darkrai is Takutsi Iyari Yiwi "Our older brother dark heart" their songs cause nightmares in new moon nights (top right corner); and the only way to get out of them is even you call a shaman who has a muvieri "an arrow" with a lunar wing (in the corner of the left in the bottom), then if you don't want to hear him you can put a gourd painted with Uxa inside it put corn, peyote and feathers (small corner right bottom) ...
Once a year you have to put some offerings of peyote, corn, arrows, or nearly the same as the I previously talk up the text XD (top left corner) ...

Well that's all my friends :D...

I hope you like it...

Some Mexican folklore, Pokémon and tribal art all in one is really creative:D. How did you learn how to do this kind of tribal art? the picture itself is telling a story

Thanks pal! ;)

Well, I done some research about that kind of art and read some books about it :)
And I looked for more information in Google
I tried to do the same as the people who use this kind of technique; to told a story by just using some symbols and key elements... :D

What a fascinatingly cultural interpretation of Darkrai. Take a bit of Mexican folklore, mix it with Pokémon, and voila, you have something like this. I love the creativity poured into this.
