Pharaoh Tut

Pharaoh Tut

It’s been ages since I last drew a portrait of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, by far the most well-known Egyptian Pharaoh to the general public. He died at 19, and some speculate it might have been murder or a violent accident, so I couldn’t help but be reminded of a certain other teenager who was violently killed a few years ago. I even see a bit of a physical resemblance between them. Of course the big difference between them is, in that other teenager’s case we at least know it was murder or at least manslaughter (so RIP to him and condolences to his family and loved ones). Try guessing who that kid was, but here’s a hint: I based the grayscale coloring of my King Tut portrait off a well-known photo of his that has him in a hoodie.
