Just to make one thing straight.
Many have asked me to draw Cleopatra, her family or someone from the end of ancient Egypt.
I hate Ptolemaic period and it’s rulers. I don’t observe, study, draw or even think about that period cause that was a time when Egyptian culture got mixed with Greek and later on with Roman culture. And Roman culture is one of the most NOT interesting cultures for me. I see Romans as all knowing smart asses who were bullying everybody.
So yeah. I love, study and draw Egypt when it was pure. Egypt in the peek of it’s power. I love eighteen and nineteen dynasty so almost every character made by me is probably from that period! (Unless I note that’s it’s from a different era- Middle or Old Kingdom!)

Mother
A mother is she who can take the place of all others,but whose place no one else can take.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19aD5elmsyII’ve realized that there aren’t many ancient drawings and paintings with children and their mothers so I’ve decided to draw a lady walking from the Nile to her house while carrying her child.Hope you like them! :)

kemetic-dreams:

Some say the Afar people are descendants of the Egyptian pharaohs. They share some similarities in the way the men wear their hair and shawls draped loosely over their shoulders, words of their language, and use of symbols reminiscent of hieroglyphics to mark their camels.

Afar and Beja people if you ask me are the descendants of the Egyptians. At least in my head and obviously in my art!

The Son of Aten
This is definitely one of my favourite drawings so far - I’ve always loved the Amarna Period and Akhenaten is one of my favourite pharaohs!

I LOVE THIS!!!!!!

Amun is SatisfiedThe other day someone gave me an suggestion to draw Amenhotep III. and his wife Tiye, parent of the Heretic pharaoh Akhenaten, so I gave it a try! I believe that they were from the south, from Nubia, especially Tiye.I’ve been playing with shadings a bit this time.Anyway, I hope you like them, I think I’m in love with Tiye! :D

Even the Gods on Earth have to pray
I don’t know if you have noticed but Seti I., father of Ramesses the Great is almost always depicted praying and worshiping and that gave me an idea to draw him and his young and beautiful wife, queen Tuya praying as the new day begins to Amon, patron of the gods.I guess Ramesses and his family are my favorite royal Egyptians! :)(Also, the first idea was to add their children (Ramesses, Tia and Henutmire), in their teens, praying with them, but I gave up on that idea, cause the pic would be to crowded!)Ignore the statue of Amon, I actually used an image for it! :DHope you like it, I surely do! :)

MY FAVORITE SONG FROM THE MOVIE THAT MADE ME IN LOVE WITH ANCIENT EGYPT!

If you didn’t know the cast of the upcoming movie, who would you pick to play an African queen?
