Sons of Osiris by RockoTheTaco Sons of Osiris by RockoTheTaco
Art history class sparked a dormant interest I had in Egyptian mythology. I read up on some of the stories, and decided to do my own take.

Osiris was lord of the underworld, and a really nice guy. His tendency to trust others bit him in the back, though, when he was killed by his brother: Set.

Set wanted to take the throne for himself, and got rid of the next in line (Osiris' son, Horus) by framing him for the king's murder. Horus was banished from the realm of the Gods and forced to live on Earth.

The only way for him to get back home and take down Set is to die having lived a just life. That means he can't just commit suicide, and he needs to perform some heroic deeds before his mortal body dies.

He takes to crime-fighting, and is aided by his half-brother, Anubis. Anubis willingly banished himself to help Horus get back, so that the two of them could take on Set together.

(Yes, I took a lot of liberties)

hoooooly shit

FUND IT FUND IT FUND IT FUND IT FUND IT

also your art is getting really good. The coloring has some room to improve and the feet are a little wonky, but fuck. It's cool to look through your gallery and actually watch as a master illustrator is born.

KEEP IT UP YOU DOUCHEBAG

Thank you so much, bro.

I need to improve faster if I don't want my sis to pass me within the next two years.

also his arrow looks thick as fuck, is that intentional?

but yeah, the poses, I'm fucking crazy about these poses. Set (that's the black one, right?) looks like a goddamn G in that pose

pretty good drawing - though I would do a little more work on your bow and arrow, the arrow wont fly straight without the feathers at the end of it, and the thicker it is the harder it is to fly. at least well. ^^;
