Painting Odd Gods

This is my first commission from someone on FurAfinity. It is the Egyptian God Set. He is an undetermined animal (they give several possible animals he could be based on, or all of them combined). I think he looks a little Kangaroo like. I researched the background, hieroglyphics and vase.I loved doing the veil/curtain. "Set, Shrouded Power", 8 1/2 x 11, Acrylic and watercolor colored pencil on Canson board. Picture 31 of 2009.


  1. Nice. i like the translucent loincloth and curtain. very well done. i also like the minimal hieroglyphics. enough to say egypt without screaming it.

  2. Thanks, the hieroglyphics on the vase is from some on a real Egyptian vase and the one on the armband says "Set" (well, it's ONE of his names anyway). I loved doing the shear cloth effects.
