The Historian

The HistorianI wanted to try my hand out at designing an African lady with a more intellectual, scholarly background than the warriors and royalty I usually draw. I imagine this particular character is a professor of history, or maybe archaeology, at a prestigious university in her native kingdom. The bird figurine on her headdress is supposed to represent a sacred ibis, the totem animal of the Egyptian god Djehuti (“Thoth”).
