Something like Egyptian Gods by Turtle-Arts Something like Egyptian Gods by Turtle-Arts
One more picture today for good measure. XD

Been realizing lately that I haven’t done a lot of “just for fun” designs and I really miss it. You know, drawing something that doesn’t have any relation to your own characters, or job-related stuff, or even fandom stuff. Just “for fun” kind of stuff. So I decided to take a little me time and do that. And I want to do it more often.  During school when I had to keep class sketchbooks I always had a ton of random stuff like this laying around, but not that I've graduated I haven't really had much incentive to do that, and I've started to miss it. :< So I'm trying to get myself back in the habit of doing just random design work again. We'll see how it goes.

Hi, I know this is a bit random, but I was hoping to ask permission to use this picture to describe the "gods" of my African roleplay? I will gladly link and credit you the website! If not, I understand.

Is the roleplay on a website? Or is it just you playing with some friends?

You know I just thought of something, what if you put characters like these in that possible Dessert Ghost and Princess of Bells book, it would match the surrealness, mystic and dessert theme it has.
Though I'm probably sprouting nonsense and I'm messing with an idea in your head which you don't want messed with and I'm just a noob :P

This reminds me a little of the game 'Journey'. Just the cloak-like designs and foreign beauty of it all. I'm a real sucker of ancient things, and this is truly breathtaking~ You've earned yourself a new watcher!

D'oh, I hadn't thought of Journey until I read it in the description, but even then I'm not that reminded of it haha

Really dig these designs though! Very simplistic but striking and I love the nod to Egyptian gods. Hopefully you get to do more for-fun designs!

Anubis has always been my favorite. I believe he's the one to the far left. I based a character after him and his name's Jakkaru meaning Jackal after the Jackal god (Anubis) haha. Just thought I should share. Really cool drawings as always Clap

With the soft colors and the robe/poncho/cloaks, this makes me imagine a sort of nomadic version of Egyptian religion. The Roma were called Gypsies because they were erroneously believed to have come from Egypt. These characters look like the gods of imaginary really-from-Egypt "gypsies". 

These designs are beautiful. :D

Thank you! ^^ And yeah, that is a pretty neat idea. Nomadic version of egyptian gods, eh? I like it. XD I don't know why I really designed them this way. I had the Anubis one pictured in my head, and decided to do a few others in the style as well.
