Re: The Sun Brings Life



I wanted to do a mythology-driven design with a rustic gold feel for this derby, and this was the result. Horus is the god of the sun, and the ankh is the key of life. They are often depicted together (usually with Horus holding the ankh). It took many different sketches and structures to finally get to something I liked, but hopefully you will like the end result

Re: Ou Est Le Discotheque?



"Où Est Le Discotheque?" or, "Euro-trash Scarab"

I tried to take elements of egyptian art and modernize them: contrasting colors, flat artwork, shiny headgear, etc.

I wanted to capture a rare tender moment where the Sphinx isn’t the mighty guardian that he’s supposed to be and instead lets his guard down and becomes just a big kitty.

I imagine it makes a sound similar to "blorp".

It's Friday. It's 4:30. Anubis just wants to get out of work but just look at all these mummies he has to process before 5!

Not really a huge fan of the derby but this came out ok, vote it up

This is fantastic. Is it gradients or solids?

Re: Pyramids Within Pyramids



Here is another creation using logo... a design within a design using the design to create the design... or something like that...

A newer version will arrive later... it will be a space invaders style...



For those who wish to duplicate... the workpace I used was 4800x4800 and it was performed in FMS logo... to do this, create a batch file to initiate FMS logo using the following string:

fmslogo.exe -W 4800 -H 4800
exit

Re: Happy Scarab



Yes, it’s a disgustingly cute scarab. Here’s the story behind this design.

I had spend a good part of 4 nights trying to get the perspective and proportions right on my “Playing in the Sand” design. I was at wits end and was trying to decide if I should continue to trudge on or just give up on it. I kept at it and finally came up with something that I thought got close to what I wanted. Once I saved it and put my pen down I threw my hands up in the air and shouted “WHEEEE!” (no joke, ask my boyfriend).

At that moment the image of an over excited scarab popped in my head. I didn’t want it to be there since I was so burned out but it stuck around. So I started sketching. He came out kind of chibi, but what can you do . . .beetles don’t have fingers and the simple style expresses the over exuberance I had.

Enjoy.

Solids -- just thin lines and careful color choices give it the "gradient look".
