Egyptian characters by dashinvaine Egyptian characters by dashinvaine
The completed Ancient Egypt page done for a facebook game, by the Lutopia Game Company. Facebook: [link]
DA: [link]

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.

Wonderful!...but I'd make the queen's complexion much darker.

not if she's a consort or Cleopatra

The characters look like they are Pre-Ptolemaic Dynasty; conversely Cleopatra VII married her two younger brothers (both died before their adolescence) before she married Marc Antony, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that isn't supposed to be him either.

I would surmise that she looks palestenian or a persian princess exchanged as part of a piece treaty, a lot of the queens of Egypt were consorts from neighbouring kingdoms

Yes, but none of them held the position of queen consort/chief head wife, that was held for the wife who was either the pharaoh's half-sister or an Egyptian born woman of his choice. The foreign wives did hold a special place in the royal court and harem.

Menhet, Menwi and Merti were three minor foreign-born, West Asian Semetic wives of Pharaoh Thutmose III. Even though they were lesser wives the women were buried in a lavishly furnished rock-cut tomb in Wady Gabbanat el-Qurud.

true but I think you are over thinking the piece and this person's choice to show a fairer queen, at the end of the day its their choice to show a more semetic queen as opposed to a lovely north african queen of terracotta tone.

I was just stating my opinion as a historian and Egyptologist. It was never a dig at the artist's skills. I have not heard any complaints from the artist, so I'm guessing my critique (which was asked for) is not a big deal.

I never thought it was a big deal but message boards tend to get out of hand over any and every little thing these days. That is all I meant.

I love this!  And it fits my novel pretty well, actually.  Would you be willing to do a piece with my characters?

hi, well tell me one thing....

lol, that is the pharaoh of higher and lower egypt, coz he has the red and white crown
cannot have the leopard skin, that is meant for the high priests only

thiz the most awesome egypt work I ve ever seen :iconeeeeeplz:

Quite right, although there is some precedent for a pharaoh wearing a leopard skin, for example Ay depicted on the wall of Tutankhamun's burial chamber.

I like the way every character shines - you can almost tell what each person is going to be like just by their appearance...
