Anubis-The Judgement by Art-of-Sekhmet Anubis-The Judgement by Art-of-Sekhmet
Anubis transporting the heart of someone who recently passed away to be weighed against the feather of Maat on the scales.

This was a quick mixed media experiment on bainbridge 80 board. Acrylics watercolor and colored pencil. It was fun to do. The scan took out some fur detail 8(

I`d like to do more, and a cooler version of Anubis. I looked up what he commonly wears in Egyptian art, and came up with this. Though I`d like to do a more polished version of the god sometime in the future. This was kind of a rush job.

This is a gift for my art history teacher, Maureen, whom I will never have as a teacher again. She`s one of the nicest, most caring people I`ve ever met.

I have no right to criticize anyone's artistic work, so all I will say is that it is simply beautiful! Anubis is one of my favorite Egyptian gods because of his darkened presence.
Well, anyways... Lovely work! ^_^

haha wow, thanks a lot .
Like I told others, I wanted to do something different than the other anubises. The standard sculptural jackal we see has no fur defined. So I decided to go with a more realistic jackal rendering.

I dig this a lot! Anubis is my favorite Egyptian God. You portrayed him so well! Kudos to you. :3 Love his outfit by the way. The blue, gold, and white all contrast very well with his fur color.

He`s more based on a real jackal rather than the thin, no fur defined sculptural version of him.

I was basing it off of a real jackals anatomy. Looking forward at the viewer, the muzzle is foreshortened.
