This image is for the upcoming werewolf calendar 2016

I was really excited to be able to do something with werewolves and Egyptian mythology. I always wondered what it would have been like if the Egyptians saw werewolves and created the Jackal God Anubis from theses sightings.

My Caption:
While many ascribed the depiction of anthropomorphized deities in ancient Egyptian culture to be allegorical metaphors to the natural world in which humans existed, some scholars now suspect there may have been a seed of truth to some of these wild bestiaries. Though it was originally thought by zoologists that the Egyptian jackal morphology was more closely related to African jackals, recent studies have resulted in a startling revelation showing a closer link between the modern gray wolf and the Egyptian jackal. Coupling this with both ancient lore and modern accounts of jackals thought to be seen in bipedal stances, it is very likely that werewolves may have a long intimate place in Egyptian history.

Pre-orders will begin on September 1st at midnight US Pacific Time (UTC−8). The first 200 Pre-orders will receive 3 bonus items: a Limited edition collectible art card/postcard by Kyndir, a sticker by Simul and a LE magnet by Johanna

I really like your collection of artwork.  I'm working on a homebrew D&D setting with one of the continents home to beast folk.  A lot of your drawings really capture what I imagine they might look like.

That is an awesome explanation! It's true, actually, not a theory! In fact, I am a werewolf with an affinity to Egypt gods.

I love your Egyptian artwork. Also very into ancient theories suggesting anthros may/might have existed. Since we have so little information about Egypt, and most of what they teach in schools has been proven wrong, it could be possible. Have you heard the one about the dog-headed men from Sirius who came to earth in ancient times to help humans with spiritual development?

What awaits in the darkness, where mortals fear to tread in fear of violating their doctrine?

I do.

A being, perhaps not the lone one of its kind, with the attributes of both human and beast. A being that appears in vivid paintings and reliefs on the walls and is identified by the mortals as a god.

However, while I may be many things - imposing, tall, strong, swift - I am not a god. I am merely a mystery, at home within the shadows.

I am fearsome, but not because I choose to be, nor because of any supernatural influence.

I am a mystery. I am a shadow. I am...a werewolf.


Well? How'd I do? Probably not the best, but I'm open to opinions!

This really keeps my breath hanging on...I can smell the oppressive atmosphere of the pyramid, where Anubis still make his eyes wander, escaping the light of the Sun...a legend awaiting for the spirit that will prove it real, watching us through the darkness of Aeons
Ages when Myths were not created, just discovered...and they wil never die :)
