To Be a Pharaoh by Zimeta To Be a Pharaoh by Zimeta
For the Egypt contest at: :iconmyths-and-legends:

Here's Nekhbet with Seti I, in my mind she's giving him little tips on how to look fabulous. "Sit up straight, dear. All of Egypt is watching!"

Nekhbet, by the way was matron of upper Egypt and the pharaohs, and seen as the ultimate protector. Sometimes she's even depicted as the divine mama of the Pharaoh. Mm-hmm. On a side-note she's also the wife of Hapy. I bet their marriage was joyous.

Seti's design is partly based on his faboo mummy (google to see him in all of his ancient glory!) and partly based on his coronation hieroglyph.
Nekhbet's anatomy was giving me trouble at first. Well, not all of it. Just her legs. At first I was trying to give her more anatomically correct bird legs, but I just didn't like it.

So! I took a hint from Disney's bitter little parrot, Iago, and also from Sibsy's lovely little Jay:

Great stuff! I love the background, but i do think that it's so busy that it distracts from the main focus--Seti and Nekhbet. Maybe if the opacity was dropped a little bit or something.

Awesome! This would make such an amazing movie.:D I really like all the little details, like the scarabs -- they really help bring the picture to life. And I love your characterization of Nekhbet!
