Anubis by Nashoba-Hostina Anubis by Nashoba-Hostina
Well, I guess it was just a matter of time before I did an anubis. Or, well, an anubis-y thing, as it's not exactly . I know it is far from accurate to the depictions... my only excuse was that it was done away from reference anyway. That being said, yes, I know he's wearing a Kheper. A cookie goes to whomever knows what it is.

Beautiful picture :giggle: I agree with the discussion down there about messing with Anubis (*Has a collection of statues, necklaces and even a plushie. My God comes in plushie form!*)

Definate fav for this :blowkiss:

Thank you so much... as for the discussion up there, I try not to take part in such things. But I will draw the line at oversized genitles for my own personal preferences O.o (And yay for plushieness ::Giggles;:)

Thanks again!

*points to the purdy beetle*

Ah, Anubis. He was always one of my favourites too. Nice depiction. :)
My only suggestion would be to either give him some clothing on the lower half, or some form suggesting the male anatomy. (nothing explicit, obviously). It's just that he's got the 'ken doll' syndrome going on there. ;)
Otherwise, great muscle structure.

Ohh, where did he put this skirty thing of his?
The Kepher or hpr is the scarab beetle, the symbol of order, rebirth and immortality and an ancient god that once rolled the sun across the sky before Re became the main sun god. ...cookie? ^^

Gosh, thanks! As for his staff, it's just special, I guess. I thought the swirl looked interesting compositionally.

My only quial with anubis pictures is how furries, or what have it, tend to turn him into a furrie. And a happy one, at that. It -really- pisses me off when they turn him into a gay sexual thing with a huge penis. Anubis was a human-like god with the head of a jackel, the head, that's it.

And sorry, I'm not getting pissed at you at all, I actually am saying this to you because you seem like the type whom may understand where I am coming from.

It's a really nice image! Your anatomy is getting so much better!
