Swan queen! Started with some loose linework but I jumped to paint pretty quickly because it’s easier for me to see if things are working or not in color blocks. Here’s my first process gif ever… enjoy haha! I can do that more in the future if people are interested.
In my mythology class we talked about the Book of the Dead - an ancient Egyptian guidebook buried with you to assist your spirit in the perilous journey of the afterlife. It was full of prayers and handy-dandy magical spells to help get you past monsters and the trials you’d face. However the longest version found is also a 78 foot long papyrus scroll. I hope this thing has a table of contents because I don’t think the monsters about to devour your soul are going to just wait around for you.
