This is the back view of an Ancient Egyptian 17th dynasty inlaid diadem or crown is traditionally associated with the burial of the 17th dynasty Theban king Nubkheperre Intef. It is today in the collection of the Leiden Museum (or Rijksmuseum van Oudheden) in the Netherlands. This rare crown was found in Dra’ Abu el-Naga’ on the West Bank of the Nile at Thebes.

A do-whatever-pretty-much commission for Kokachu! They just wanted something like my Entropy piece, so I used one of my own ocs and had fun!

Final color on top, original desaturated pencil and white charcoal work on bottom.

This was a pay what you want commission, which I’m currently open for

UUUUUUWAHHHHH? Look at this beauty. *A* WIZARD ARTIST BEST FRIEND DOES MAGIC ART!

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate

medievalpoc:

If you are interested in having discussions about race and representation in fantasy media, analyzing and questioning our ideas about what “historical accuracy” means, and criticizing the way we use concepts about Medieval Europe to exclude people of color from enjoying historical play, in addition to learning about people of color in European art history, click here to follow the Medievalpoc tumblr.

Anyone who thinks it’s going “too far” to point out people who refuse to acknowledge the massive double standard in applying “historical accuracy” to fantasy settings only when it comes to including characters of color, go ahead and click here to unfollow the Medievalpoc tumblr.

For just the images, here’s the Flickr stream.

For static database without discussion, here’s the dot org website.

There’s also a Twitter. And a Facebook.

Just because you want a history lesson doesn’t mean you’re going to receive the lesson you were expecting. Pretending that history doesn’t affect the way we interact with each other today is not in keeping with what this whole thing is about.

"I finally understood that great works don’t begin as great works. They begin as rough ideas. I realized that creation is a process. I thought if I can understand the first step I can learn the next step. I was fully aware that I had much to learn, but I was confident that I could learn it.

Here’s a rough sketch of my own. This is the sketch that later became the cover for The Bad Beginning

Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.

I’d watch this movie.

How is this not a movie?
