Hannibal: Kaiseki + the devil’s in the details
The Egyptian Temple of Esna, south of Luxor.
Erected in the Ptolemaic Period, this temple was the last Egyptian temple to be decorated with hieroglyphic texts.
The site was an important cultural center in the Ptolemaic Period, although archaeological evidence dates from as early as the Middle Kingdom. […] It was erected in the Ptolemaic Period and enlarged with a hypostyle hall, decorated mainly in Roman times. The temple was dedicated to an androgynous, nameless, omnipotent creator god, which manifested itself as both the male god Khnum/ Khnum-Ra and the female deity Neith.
Nothing more than the hypostyle hall has survived from the temple. Its walls are decorated with some unique ritual scenes, such as the dance of the pharaoh before the gods, and the catching of fishes and birds with a clap net. The temple’s columns, decorated mainly with inscriptions, display the only temple ritual known from ancient Egypt that is preserved in its entirety. The inscriptions are written in Middle Egyptian with some Demotic influence.
[…] The existing temple of Esna was built during the reign of Ptolemy V (205-180 BCE) and decorated by his successor, Ptolemy VI (180-145 BCE), during that ruler’s coregency with Ptolemy VIII and Cleopatra II (170-163 BCE).
The shown relief in the fourth photo is from the north side of the temple, and shows Roman emperor Trajan subduing the enemies of Egypt -a traditional Pharaonic image in Egyptian art.

I swear, squared paper is the bane of my existance, but I prefer drawing on it over everything else… >_<
Lots of Isis.
I haven’t doodled in ages.
Obviously, there is no denying here, the hair was inspired by how Zennore draws it.
(Also I love drawing angry/annoyed looking faces. What.)
HiRez really needs to re-evaluate their female gods.
I swear. Someone needs to do a parody of Katy Perry’s Dark Horse video. And use mostly the Egypt Pantheon for it. And maybe a handful of the other gods.
I vote Isis as replacement for Katy Perry, due to that scene towards the end. Also magic.
>Wants do do some SMITE fanart
>decides to do a shitty, half-assed trace of a Hark A Vagrant comic strip instead
