Devourer of Hearts - pg. 1 by shoomlah Devourer of Hearts - pg. 1 by shoomlah
The beginning half of my first assignment for my comics class with Shanth- a 2 page comic, each page with 3-6 panels, telling some cohesive narrative that "blows his socks off." Retooled a bit after the critique, and I think it reads a lot better now. Don't really have much to say about it beyond that, actually- it took a lot of time, but it was worth it. :)

(My friends :iconhomarusrex: and :iconladydoor: are in the class as well, so check them out if your want to see their responses to the assignments as well... Painfully good art from the both of them.)

EDIT: in response to Shazzbaa's comment, I thought I should point out that I drew Horus playing with Ammut rather than Anubis simply because I wanted to draw a crazy awesome Horus. There's nothing more behind it, apologies in advance for the mythologically confusing situation.

My first thought was that this ought to be Thoth, but very nice work indeed! Love the stylization!

My first thought was that this should really be Thoth, but either works. Well done!

I was absolutely intrigued by this ancient egyptian concept! Ammut devours the unworthy heart of some poor devil :)

This is an amazing style to portray this in! I absolutely love the angular style....really does justice to the unique ancient egyptian art style. WELL DONE! fave!

Thanks for commenting without bothering to read the second page of the comic! You're missing the point.

You've added plenty of flexibility to the stereotypical Egyptian art style, which, as a result, both respects the source and instills your own style into the work.

I think the choice of whether to ink by hand or on your tablet is totally up to you- I'm inking a comic right now digitally, but this one was done with ballpoint pen. You can get comparable results, it's just up to you and your tastes. :)
