The Silent Place by Hbruton The Silent Place by Hbruton
Probably my single favourite painting of mine. Sure it has problems but overall I still like it even this many years after I've painted it. Anubis, waits for nightfall in the Hypostyle Hall in Karnak. Again, all jewelry, costuming, background and objects exist with the single exception of the standard. the original has a lion as opposed to a jackal on it. 33x24 acrylic on illustration board. Prints available.

It is beautiful. The standard - I want to say that while the original may have a lion, there are those with a Jackal/Set-Animal! So, it's not wrong in some respects. (I must get back to studying.) :+fav: Wonderful work! ...Though, one question, do they have owls in Egypt???... Either way, it's beautiful!

Yes indeed they do have owls in Egypt, a number of different ones. This one is a Marsh Owl and relatively common along the Nile valley.

Dear gods this is a beautiful piece. I love the feel and atmosphere of the painting all around. You did wonderfully on the garb, the temple, and even the background. The hiroglyphs on the pillars add a touch of the "ancient" feeling as well. I also like the fact that Anubis looks like a silent watcher, or perhaps a guardian observing the world from afar. I feel that you've captured Anubis as he is truly represented; not as a god of death like in all too much media, and such things, but as a silent guardian. Keep up the amazing work. *favs*

Yes, yes. Everybody's favorite is Anubis. D: Why is that? ... okay, stupid question, I know. He looks totally awesome, that's why. =/ He's one of my favorites too.

Though I personally favor Min.

Beautiful. Must fav. Love your art. <3

That is amazing. You are very skilled -- you have even managed to capture some of that "shine" that usually acrylics cannot emphasize. Beautiful.

Nope, I work in acrylic. While I like the wonderful colours and blending ability of oils, I'm way too impatient for the slow drying time. And I'm not too fond of the smell either:) Acrylic suits me just fine:)
