Anubis by Dracunnum Anubis by Dracunnum
There you are : better art of Anubis (and Ammut :p) in this part of my gallery : dracunnum.deviantart.com/galle…



My version of the egyptian god of death.
Anubis and Sekhmet are my favourite since I was 11 ! :p I love egyptian mythology more than other. (Even if I discovered greek gods before...)

Just a quick sketch a drew at work with a ballpoint pen, colored with photoshop 7.

Will be moved to scraps later, too...

Ahhh I love Egypt so much. Best mythology ever. I love Anubis, though I always had an affinity for Isis. She was rebellious, gotta respect an early feminist xP

I agree. :) I find egyptian goddesses way more interesting than greek ones (even if I highly appreciate Artemis). Egyptian gods seems way more balanced and ambiguous to me. And yes, Isis. :heart:

Yes, though Greece borrowed a lot from Egypt when they invaded. Egypt had their gods longer and I guess like anything, they were able to develop them more. I also love how Isis tricked Ra in one myth into having him tell her his real name, and thus was able to take some of his power, making her on par with him. I just love that one xP

Anyway yeah, great work :D

Great job. :D You've done well capturing him in your style. I like your cross-hatching technique. his expression is neat as well; looking rather serious for his serious job. :D Nice work on the swirls in the background too. the Egyptians came up with some neat things. :aww:

Anubis is one of my favorite gods of mythology, too--next to Bast, who was the first Egyptian goddess I ever heard of, and still love to this day ^^

Anyway, beautiful sketch; I especially love the textured background.

Merci beaucoup ! :) Je voulais lui donner un air distingué et assez différent à la fois de l'Anubis que tout le monde connaît... :p

Pretty badass, I love your colouring style.
I have loved Egyptain and Greek/Roman mythology since I was in primary school too.
I was such a nerd, before I got into that phase I wanted to be a Paleontologist. I spent ALOT of time reading back then.
Now I barely read two novels a year, it's hard for me to find anything I really like.
Oh well, better than none I guess.

I think I learnt the meaning of the words mythology, magic, curse or god since I watched "The Clash of the Titans" :giggle:
