These are such a big help for a project I'm working on :)
I saw somebody wondering how the tall hairstyles were made, so I wanted to just add for anyone curious: For a long while, archaeologists were convinced the elaborate hairstyles were just wigs because you can't make them like that with ordinary hairpins. However, a hairdresser, Janet Stephens, found out that you can make them with a needle and thread - literally sowing the hair. She has recreated many of the styles and got published in a proper journal and everything because of this discovery. Try and look her up - she's really cool!
Anyway, thanks a lot for these. Your work is wonderful.

This is really really useful! It's not the typical hairstyles but it's actually hairstyles you can find on the movies. Im really amazed how you caught their styles easily. Though it would be more better if you darken up the color a bit. the lineart seems ashed ; v ; but overall this is a good piece esp for those drawing ancient characters.  I also suggest you put your signature a little bit upwards, people can easily cut it and claim your art though, just safety measures ; v ;
