Takhaet, my Egyptian warrior character, is testing a heretofore undiscovered prototype of the hang-glider. I came up with the idea while daydreaming about her infiltrating some kind of enemy fortress (perhaps to rescue a prominent individual held captive?) and then brainstorming ways for her to get in. I thought, “hey, you don’t need too much post-Bronze Age technology to make a hang-glider, so why not have her fly over the ramparts on one?” Plus it would give enemy soldiers a shock which could demoralize them.
In this picture Takhaet would be a few years younger than in previous ones I’ve drawn of her; she hasn’t earned the golden fly medals I’ve drawn on her earlier yet.
