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 loved this period. I always loved how Akhenaten showed more tenderness,

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.

This is better than some of your other works I've commented on. I'm not sure what you did differently this time, but I like it. ^_^

And after double-checking my facts, I'd have to say that I like d.19 myself. :)

Maybe the shadows I've decided to add on my characters? And the golden, more detailed, jewelery? Plus I've added some colors on my male character's lips, usualy I didn't do that! :)
I'm glad you like it and I'm glad you are 19. dynasty lover! :D

I think I've mentioned before that I like Michelle Moran's books...her portrayal of Nefertari was infinitely more interesting, because it sounds like she went into battle and was generally a kickass gal. Plus there's the whole, "Moses = brother of Ramses II?" deal. Doubtful, since he had sisters, but it depends on your view of the bible, too, I think.

I'm writing a book myself about the harem in the time of Ramesses II. Nefertari is more like a bitch in it, she even kills her brother Amenmose who rapped the other queen Isetnofret although Nefertari is pleased with his act. And there is no Moses cause I don't believe the whole ''jews were slaves treated like animals in Egypt''.

Never heard of Amenmose. Do you have a webpage I can see about him, so I can educate myself?

And I'm holding you to writing that book...I know you know I want to read it. ;)

I've read it here
www.fofweb.com/History/HistRef…

It says that Amenmose was Nefertari's brother and mayor of Thebes/Waset at that time so I've added him to the story! The theory that he was her brother may be false but the idea was perfect and the character fit to my story!

He is actually in love with Ramesses's second wife Isetnofret and she realized that. She flirterd with him so she could find out what is Nefertari plotting. (In my book they are plotting all the time one against other). So Isetnofret is flirting with him but thats all, no make out or sex. Also Isetnofret's father, Djed, vizier in Memphis is accused by Nefertari that he is making a conspiracy against Seti I. (he is still alive and rulling). Djed is killed and at the banquet in the honour of Seti's victory Amenmose gets drunk and rapes Isetnofret. Later he is murdered by his sister cause she found out that he was telling everything to Iset and that he raped her (she doesn't know what to do if Iset tells about the rape to Ramesses).
Btw Djed and Seti are brothers in my story! :)

So here you go, short part of the huge story of plotting, killing, raping etc. in Ramesses's harem! :D
