Egyptian Gods' Convention by ShadowCheetah Egyptian Gods' Convention by ShadowCheetah
Wow... the scanner really mutilated this one.

Anyway, I'm proud to announce that I have now completed the ancient rite of becoming a member of the Order of the Sacred Bandwagon, for I have fulfilled the two requirements. I have drawn an iPod spoof, and I've drawn Anubis at least once.

I'm not sure how many people here will get this one. Regardless, I always thought that Anubis must be an awfully easy target for the rest of the gods and goddesses.

I'm still not happy with Bast's dialog, but it seemed like she had to say SOMETHING. That was the bast... err... best I could come up with.

I'm pretty sure looking awesome while angry is a requirement for being a death god. ;p

I the pick is still bloody nice. But i thought that bast was a daughter of anubis, and as i see anubis pertraid he wouldnt care what the other gods ahev to for these resons. A) hes a god of death so he not ganna care for what the liveing do. B) All god must die at some point so they got to face him and C) They are all bloddy jelous of His fan popularety lol

For a while, Bast was considered to be Anubis' mother, actually. Sure about that one. Later, she was thought to be his wife, too, so for all I know, at some point, she could have been his daughter. Egyptian mythology is confusing that way.

As for the rest... it wouldn't be funny if he didn't react to the taunting. :P

True with the taunting. COULD you try a pic where one of the god are complaining about all the stuff Anubis is getting. For the history it all goes by which age you get it from.

Using Bes or something for that could be amusing. I'll keep that in mind. ;)

Heh, I probably should have just left it out. For some time, Bast was considered the mother of Anubis. Then again, she was also considered his wife instead at one point due to a spelling mixup with the Greeks, so the whole issue is pretty confused. :P

Ahaha, I love it! C: Anubis is totally my favorite god. *Crap, he's everyone's! I need to be more unique!* I guess if I dug deep enough I'd find a god/dess I like better, but for now...he's so cool! Whooo! Anuuuubiiisss!!!11!

You and your awesome anatomy. c: I especially love Bast's pose and expression. xD It's perfect and hard to describe.

Hehe. Anubis is one of the top ones for me too as far as looks go. Bast, of course, is my all-time favourite goddess. *nodnods*

I'm really glad Bast turned out alright! I'm trying to learn how to draw females (which is odd since originally, I could draw them better than guys). Right now, they sort of all look the same, but hopefully I'll get better.

Anyhoo, thanks bunches, Dazers!

(Psssst... Draw more!)

LOL! I really love this. You really conveyed it all very well and lovely character designs and whatnot. Wonderful expressions as well.

Yay for Egyptian Mythology.

Yay! Thanks, imoto-chan!

Hehe, the character designs weren't really all that hard, though. Just standard Egyptianish stuff with knickknacks that relate to the individual god/goddess. You know, the Eye of Ra design around the eye for Bast along with the was-scepter, which I have no clue what the significance is, but it appears a lot in drawings of her. And a cliche ankh for Anubis. It's kinda fun though. You should try it sometime! Besides, that would mean I'd finally get to see some new imoto-chan art ;p

Randomly stumbled upon this while just lurking around. But I must say that this piece impresses me. I have a certain soft spot for all the Egyptian gods and goddesses, I like them more than even Greek gods and goddesses.

But then again I'm a mythology nut so it's all good.

Nice work mate,

Thanks a lot! I've always been quite a fan of all things Egypt, so this was quite an enjoyable piece to do. :)

I LOVE THIS, and would probably love it even more if I knew what ye were joking at. x3 Like why Anubis is bandwagony (I assume he's in some very popular game or anime I have no idea of? x3)... Or even what VCL is. D: I fail at joke-getting.

But it's so well-drawn! Yer expressions are priceless, they really are, ye're truly gifted at making comic-y things, I mean like, expressing words through facial expressions, it's just so cool! I even love how Bast just is NOT paying attention to him at all, looking somewhere off in the distance, looking kinda dazed and dreeeeamy... x3 and may I say so without sounding creepy, Bast is HAWT.

I think it's the earfluff. <3

And OH she's got him with her little scepter-hook thingy - I NEVER GOT THAT. xD Srsly, I just saw that, and it makes it even BETTAR. xD

But in all srsness, this is a gorgeous drawing and should be inked and made into a really high-end type thing, I think, 'cause it's AWESOME, yer anatomy and proportions are perfect, I think, and it's just. REALLY COOL.

I miss ye. ;_;

But HAY, letter is going out tomorrow! ^_^ It's not very long, but it's quite, quite random and there's a surprise inside that is quite colorful but it leaked through the paper so ye'll see most of it before ye even unfold the paper, surprise spoilt. D: And my handwriting is wonky, so I hope ye can read it all. MAD LUFF FOR FUZZYBUDDIES! <3

SYLVER! *pounces* Hiya!

Hehe, you always leave such big, really nice comments! They're like novels. Only better because they're from you. Thank you so much! *glompages* I need to catch you online sometime again *nodnods*

Anyhoo, I guess I'm not sure how funny the joke is to even those who do get it, but it's mostly a furry joke that probably doesn't quite make sense unless you're at least somewhat familiar with the fandom :)

VCL is an archive of anthro art that's quite popular. I browse through parts on occasion when I'm bored, which is fun, although you do have to be a bit careful since it allows art of all sorts, including those that are most certainly not appropriate for all ages. Every now and then, you see waves of fads that go through there. For instance, iPod spoofs, which were a huge thing for a small amount of time.

Anubis is a very long-lasting trend. Like... he's everywhere. Everyone and their dog draws him. And many of the drawings depict him in situations that are quite adult in nature. Which is what the whole joke is about.

I mean, if I were Anubis, I'd be a bit of a sore point for me if I used to be the GOD OF THE UNDERWORLD (until I was replaced, anyway), and then suddenly, everyone knows me as the symbol of sex, sodomy, and really weird fetishes ;p. Then again, if I were some other random Egyptian god, I probably wouldn't be able to resist poking fun at the guy about it.

Anyway, I'm really glad all the expressions came across! I had a lot of fun with them but I wasn't sure if they'd be clear what's going on since they're mostly reacting to things that weren't drawn. Well, I guess Anubis is kind of obvious with him reacting to some random piece of art involving him doing something unmentionable. Bast was fun since she's half-bored by Ra's speech, but kind of obligated to keep listening, and EVERY year, Anubis goes through something like that so she's pretty used to it by now.

And yes, Bast's earfluff is like... totally sexy. Rawr. ;p

Anyhoo... heh, I can never ink things well in real life (yet), but it might be fun to try doing some stuff with this one. I was really happy with how it turned out, afterall!

Oh, and I'm really looking forward to your letter! I still have to finish writing yours...
