Amarna family by Sanio Amarna family by Sanio
After I drew Tut and Ankhesenpaaten I had to draw some more Amarna art. So this is also a ''realistic'' version of one stone relief depicting the royal family (seen behind my characters).
I didn't turn Akhenaten into a oddly constructed man as he is shown on walls and statues.
So yeah, here you go, Akhenaten, Meritaten (the oldest), Meketaten (second child), Ankhesenpaaten (third daughter and future wife of her half-brother Tut) and their beautiful mother, wife of Akhenaten, queen of Egypt, Nefertiti.

Hope you like it! :D

I really want Disney to make an animated film based on Michelle Moran's "Nefertiti." But I don't want Akhenaten to be so paranoid as he was in that novel. Instead the villain would be a priestess of Set who wants to destroy the sun (the Aten) to make herself young. Kind of like Yzma from "Kingdom of the Sun."

As is your usual this is beautifully done - harmonious colors, good accuracy per the orginal and brought to intimacy as living people by your capture of the individuals.

Every time I look at this picture, I can't help it, I'm starting to smile like I'm stupid because I see the perfect family. Don't know if the original fresco is a piece of propaganda like few people are saying, but this is the model of what a family must to be. Equality between women and men. Pharaoh is shown giving love to his children, even though they're all female, and he's giving love to his Chief Wife, his co-regent. He loved them, he loved his daughters, he loved his wife. He shows us how much he loved them. And this is so beautiful. And I congratulate you for transcribe this on your drawing. Thanks so much.

This is true, and this is for that I love Akhenaten. I'm pretty sure he was such a feminist. lol

Probably he was! But I think almost all Egyptians were feminist! They treated women different then the rest old world! They were equal and could do almost anything a man could do and that is one of many things that are awesome about ancient Egypt! :)

I love all of your art work particularly how you used color in your pieces and how you make facial expressions in the people that you draw. It is like each has a distinct personality. To me this show a professionalism in still animation drawing. Outstanding job.
