Egyptian Family Portrait by StephenSchaffer Egyptian Family Portrait by StephenSchaffer
Oy! So, I have no clue what's going on with me right now. I've written a few journals about it, talked to friends, family, teachers, etc. and have no f'n clue what I'm doing. Every time I think I've finally figures this whole art thing out, figured out what I want to do with it, it just flies away, leaving me even more clueless than when I started.

Aside from that, I managed to get this piece done. It is a redo of an older piece that met its demise from a bottle of india ink :( Personally, I'm a Greek Mythology fan more than an Egyptian Mythology fan, but I do enjoy reading the canon every now and again and these four characters are particular favs of mine. Clockwise from the top:

Osiris: [link]
Thoth: [link]
Isis: [link]
Anubis: [link]

Hope y'all dig it.

Oh... My.. Gosh.. This is absolutely incredible!
I agree completely! I adore Osiris and Isis too!
Though Anubis has got to be my all time fav!
What a great style and wonderful details!
Truly one of the best things here on DA! In my opinion! ;)

I loved it- i particularly like that while it gives a modern edge to this vision of the 'Diine Family', the image loses nothing of its ancient power. Bravo!

anubis's half brother is Horus not Thoth. Thoth is 1 of the oldest of they Egyptian gods

good point. Wepwawet is Anubis' other half brother and Nephthys other son. 2 canines a bird and big momma sound like a pretty nice portrait

That's funny, I'm practicing magic; me and my girlfriend composed a new banishing ritual yesterday and they are the exact same gods we use in the ritual in the same disposition (Thoth = east; Isis = south; Anubis = west and Osiris = north...
Thats awesome, and your art is great, may I use your Illustration when I'll publish my ritual in a free webzine I'm co-writing? (with Image © Steve Schaffer under it of course)

Keep the good work!
