Hoshea of Israel

Hoshea of Israel

This is concept art for a character named Hoshea of Israel, the protagonist of a short historical fiction I recently wrote. He’s much more anti-heroic than what I usually work with, but he has understandable reasons for his agenda. His tribe recently suffered a massacre and mass enslavement at the hands of the Crown Prince of Egypt, and he wants to strike the same terror into the Egyptians’ hearts even if he gets himself killed in the process. You could say he’s an ancient-era precursor to the modern suicide bomber, even though his religion is early Jewish rather than Islamic.
