Myth of Osiris and Isis by Zanten Myth of Osiris and Isis by Zanten
EDIT: Once again, I thank :iconzoneh: for being patient enough to tell me what to correct! SO, there's more of the picture, more grass, colors, shadows, details...
And I'm finally satisfied with it! :excited: but critiques are welcome! :aww:

Maybe I'll even correct more things if you tell me what...
Full name:
Myth of Osiris and Isis - Seth's rage

"At the sight hatred and anger came upon him in a red cloud, and he raged like a panther of the south. He tore open the chest, took the body of Osiris, and rent it into fourteen pieces which, by his divine strength, he scattered up and down the whole length of the Nile so that the crocodiles might eat them.

"It is not possible to destroy the body of a god!" cried Seth. "Yet I have done it - for I have destroyed Osiris!" His laughter echoed through the land, and all who heard it trembled and hid."

Read the whole myth here: [link]

This will be my entry for the Myths and Legends: Illustration contest [link] and for the Story Coming To Life contest: [link] Yes, this IS an illustration! *imagine this pic in a children's book: "Egyptian mythology for kids"* :XD: I so wanna illustrate a children's book one day... :love:

The description above says everything! And I kinda imagined that when Seth walks, the grass below his feet turns into sand *and that's how he creates deserts* since he is so EVIIIILLLL! *Upper Egypt didn't think that Seth was evil. Poor guy, he's misunderstood! :tears:*

Annnnd.. I think that Seth was an aardvark! :XD:

Illustartion (c) me, done 99% with watercolors, 1% with colored pencils

I must thank to :iconzoneh: for pointing out some terrible anatomy mistakes and for supporting me! Thanx hun! :iconglompage:

I was drawing this for more than 5 days, but I still wanna hear your opinions! :nod: :D
