Xibalba by MeganMissfit Xibalba by MeganMissfit
Been a while since I did some sort of environment >w<

So this past week I was vacationing in Belize, and while we were there we joined this cave tubing tour. We were taken to this site which was once believed by the Mayans to be the entrance to the underworld, aka Xibalba. After entering the cave system, I turned around and looked back and saw a beautiful scene just like this. Our surroundings started to get darker and darker but in the far distance outside was this really cool light beam streaming through the foliage and landing on a small chunk of the shore. I had to draw a picture of it ^_^ It was a really beautiful, gorgeous hell. Lol :)

This took about...2.5 hours? I was getting my car serviced today and had to wait :(

A beautiful hell? The Mayans seem to have had the right idea ;D

This is such a beautiful blend of colors, though <3

Oh it was great. The cave was nice and cool, the water was a perfect temperature and crystal clear. You could even drink it since it was clean. We were the only tour group there (there was less than 10 of us) so it was nice and quiet. Really neat experience ^_^

Great work :) I love the difference between the darkness and that isolated patch of light shining through, and that you've depicted it so clearly. It must have been quite a sight to see!

Wow!

It's... Nice! :)

Beam of light coming from ceiling of dark and strange cave... That's a bit spooky. But it also forces you to want to see more...

Nice work!
