And dang, it's hard to find references for the ladies' clothes in some of these ancient cultures.
Just a simple small detail which makes them sure cuter and more feminine but on the other hand obviously tough and resilient, literally feeling the roughness of the world under their feet...
I actually, if you don't mind of course, would like to ask you if could draw it goat-skin-like. No doubt you'll make look as pretty as these.
These dresses are quite beautiful.
Congratulations, i find this images quite interesting and it is quite dificult to find some art about the "Black-headed People".
Probably you already know this images, but i will post them anyway:
Oh! Just a friendly warning: Don't draw simple mortal women with headresses similar to the ones the female dingir use (the ones with horns), lest you atract their wrath!
Women (even goddesses!) can be quite envious!
I read books of Zecharia Sitchin. I like aliens, Anunnaki and Ancient Mesopotamia very much.
Look my arts of Sumerian and Akkadian mythology!

Can I use the one to the left as a basis for a cosplay idea I have? She's cool and she is the closest I have found to be what I imagine the character to be.Pretty Please?
Wow, these are really good. I recognized them as Sumerian, I think it was because I have a book about ancient civilizations and they had illustrations of what they wore. Very nice drawing.
You probably have noticed in the references the woman wear an extrange hat or barrete, i've been trying to figure it out for some time.
By the way, dam!, your gallery rocks! Love your drawings
Cheers and good luck
I´ve been in your blog, where can i read your comics? The pictures you got in the blog didnt enlarge.
I wish I had a comic up, but I don't. All I have is old stuff I'm too embarassed to show anyone. That's why I'm working on the Astilbe project, so I have something nice.
The Hebrews might be a little more challenging to find references for, though...
But seriously....I lovelovelovelovelove all the ancient drawings you're doing...they are -amazing-
I'll send you some stuff.
