After sketching this Pharaoh’s pose and expression, I was a little unsure how to describe it. To me her arm gesture suggests confidence, but her eyebrows read an underlying anxiety. So I decided she’s posing as this cool Queen of the Nile who knows she’s hot stuff, but deep inside is a little uneasy about all the responsibility that comes with Egyptian divine monarchy. Or something like that.
Anyway, I just wanted to doodle something Egyptian after neglecting that subject matter for so long.
