LEGO Book of the Dead

Postby plums_deify » Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:52 pm

I figure these ones deserve their own topic, so there you go.

One thing lead to another, and I drew the "main characters" as seen in a Book of the Dead, courtesy of the Egyptians.

Here are the linearts:

Dead Guy:

Anubis:

Thoth:

The Scale:

The Heart-Eater:
Image

Horus:
Image

Osiris and Isis:

I'm currently painting each of these...not a clue what I'll do with them, but there you go.

Full Gallery is here.

I hope they get along well.
Very nice, and well drawn.

If I were to make something out of LEGOs, I would probably use LEGOs. Pretty advanced stuff going on up in my head.

You know I adore these drawings you are doing. The Egyptian ones are truly great. I've always had a like for Egyptian.

Thondor...typing in all capitals online is considered to be yelling and is quite rude. Please try not to do that often. Thank you.

For me these drawings are great. They show that the Egyptian style is perfect for LEGO. Ever since Pharaoh Hotep came out in the Adventurers line, I have been dreaming that LEGO would make some more Egyptian figures and sets. Nice work.

The Anubis is definitely my favorite. It looks absolutely great, as do the others. Nice job! Are you planning on drawing any explorers or archeologists?

Probably not any explorers or anything. Nor archeologists. :)

And thank you!
