Edit: YES!! My sister took a photo of it with a much nicer camera and it kept her lovely colors :boogie: She also edited it to keep the background black, since the natural lighting was bouncing off of it for the picture. I'm a horrible editor so I had her do it. Thanks sista!! I also wanted to mention(since before i was so upset with the scan ;p) that I used Freida Pinto for the reff, cause, to me, she looks a lot like the bust of Nefertiti, or at least be real easy to sculpt Nefertiti off of her. Which it was :D

So mad! :frustrated: The scanner totally messed up the colors and brighten and everything.. I tried fixing it in GIMP but it still don't look like the original... Bleh.................... her skin is supposed to be more orange tinted... and the background looks horrible..... so distracting *pulls hair out* it makes me so sad that you guys will never see how she should look, in real life :cries: Especially since I put so much work into it :(


If you want to see how it looked before the edit, just how badly the scanner made it look, go here: myworld1.deviantart.com/art/Ne…

Sisters are the best! :love: 
I love this. The pitch black background makes your art stand out a lot! I think it still looks very beautiful! Love this. I wish I could highlight and shade skin colour like you. :3

thank you!! Um... like online or something? I actually just either search online for inspiration or go through my own ancient Egyptian books. And I've saved a bunch of pictures of Egyptian jewelry, clothing, and wigs into a folder on my computer.. but i'm sure you could find something if you did an internet search :)

Gaaah, perfection. I love how we can see the strokes and lines, but at the same time it just blends together beautifully. :D The colors, the designs, everything about this is just perfect.
