Thesis : The Sun Disk by kpelto-illustration Thesis : The Sun Disk by kpelto-illustration
For my senior illustration Thesis project, I looked at Egyptian pictograms of dieties and interpreted them literally. 5 of the 10 images were character concepts, and 5 were illustrations.

This one is my version of Horus, shaped like one of my classic Burdburd aliens. I wanted to play with the idea that the Sun Disk was a literal object, something to be held and passed around, and in this case as a gift from Isis after Horus nearly collapsed from dehydration in the desert.


::: all pieces from my Thesis project were done in graphite and photoshop, textures from CGtextures.com :::

I never though Horus could be at all cute... but now he is. You also did an amazing job on his birdy-face and the hands; they almost look like owl feet, but somewhat human-like. I really like Egyptian mythology, and you interpretations are beautiful. The background is awesome, too!
