ART: Tiye and the Lotus (R)
Title: Tiye and the Lotus
Rating: R (for artistic nudity, NSFW)
Character/Subject: Tiye, queen of Egypt
Artists' Notes: Tiye was the Great Royal Wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, and mother of Pharaoh Akhenaten. This is based on portrait statues of Tiye and artifacts of the New Kingdom in Egypt, which was my obsession when I was a kid. Also, the lotus may be my favorite flower ever. The pose is based on stock reference photography, as usual.
I was taking a break from all the fandom stuff and decided to do one of the items on my long "to draw, when I have time" list.
