Egyptian Characters reworked by dashinvaine Egyptian Characters reworked by dashinvaine
Tweaked this for Lutopia at the last minute. www.facebook.com/pages/LUTOPiA…


The completed Ancient Egypt page done for a facebook game, by the Lutopia Game Company. Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/LUTOPiA…
DA: fansofancienthistory.deviantar…

The game involves different cultures from antiquity and the scene required characters (and buildings) to be equivalent to the pieces of a chess set: castles, knights, bishops a king and a queen. The bishop and knight characters were to be a male and female on each side.

It is so nice to see egyptian themed art that isn't some kind of weird anime porn. Excellent work.

Are they all supposed to be different Egyptian deities or Egyptian historical figures?
Reply
:icondashinvaine:
dashinvaine Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
Generic figures designed to correspond to chess pieces. i.e. king and queen, male and female 'bishop' male and female 'knight' and two buildings as rooks.

Ankh ujah sennep! Kind of nice to see some 'Classic' Egyptian, but, it's you. I caught the temporal toss-up.

Is the woman in the middle Cleopatra?
She looks like she's from the Ptolemids Dynasty; they were of Madedonian
deecent and would have been lighter skinned than the other Egyptians.

A bit of a mixture. Mostly New Kingdom (Egyptians didn't use chariots before that). The shield is based on one from Tut's tomb. The queen is Ptolemaic.

A woman in a chariot? Is that correct?
Reply

dashinvaine Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
The original commission called for a female warrior, but yes, there are images from the Amarna era of Nefertiti drining a chariot.
