Isis by tonyperna Isis by tonyperna
Here is a sketch card of Isis that I drew for the LEGENDS & LORE card set. Sketch card measures 2.5" x 3.5".

Isis - Egyptian Great Goddess of life, death and rebirth. Daughter of earth and sky. Mother of Horus the falcon god. Wife of her brother Osiris, the god-king of vegetation and eternal life. She gave life after death to her husband. The eternal salvation that she could bestow was originally (in the Bronze Age) only for the god-king but gradually, as the cult became democratic in the Iron Age, it became available to all humans. Isis wears a thone-shaped crown which indicates that she originally personified the throne of the pharaohs.

PLEASE, NEGATIVE CRITIQUES ARE NOT WELCOME AND WILL BE DELETED. THESE ARE MY INTREPRETATIONS OF THESE CHARACTERS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON VARIOUS STORIES THAT ALL DIFFER FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THANK YOU.

I really love her pose, she does look powerful but very beautiful, I always loved her wings and the way you drew them is fantastic, especially the colours
