Fun fact, Cleopatra VII was Greek & Egyptian, hence the pale skin. Although she was the last ruler of Egypt before Rome took complete control, she was strong despite her name being smeared in the mud for being a whore.
Anyways, the Ancient Eygptain civilization ALWAYS fascinated me. Especially in the mythology and the architecture of the pyramids. My favorite of the deities are Anubis & Bastet. Both appear to look like animals common back then but there occupations intrigue me more.
The beauty of Egypt was VERY popular especially if you thought the modern world was vain, Ancient Egypt takes the cake, next to Greece & Rome. Makeup was a must for both males and females. Sometimes it would be for ceremonies and others just for vanity. Unlike today, Ancient civilizations weren't as discret when it came to passion, romance, and exploring the human anatomy.
I became better at highlighting and using different tones to make the body appear more 3D in a sense. It took 2 days and at least 10 hours.
