Mummification was no easy business.

Watch videos about art and conservation how-tos, ask questions and get answers in the Getty Museum’s new partnership with Khan Academy!

Great collaboration! I’d definitely recommend looking through these videos, there’s some particularly interesting conservation ones relating to ancient art here.

I am a huge believer in Khan Academy and elearning. I just heard this announcement and am absolutely thrilled!

I have a new favourite artist, and I have found him quite by accident. Done in the style of “The Prince of Egypt” Sanio has some wonderful art of Ancient Egyptian historical figures that is not to be missed.

If this guy is not doing full animated films yet, someone at Dreamworks or Disney needs to snap him up quick! There is just too much talent here not to take a good, long and appreciative look!

Merit- Amun

This is the first daughter born to Ramesses from his chief queen Nefertari. She is wise but very snobish. She knows that she is the daughter of Ramesses and she uses that when ever and where ever she wants.

I added two servants with her, maybe her good friends.

This is the first time I shade the characters very careful and I asume there are huge anatomy mistakes but give me a break, it is my first time! 😛

Anyway, I was playing with shades, blurie characters in the background etc.

Maybe I’ll submit only characters without the backgorund and bluriness so you could see all the details I drawn on them.

(also I’ve added the mature content because there are visible breasts! (I hate that because ancient egyptians weren’t ”chaste” as we are.))

Hope you like it! 🙂

I know I do! 

Cheers! 🙂
