Today I’m working on a commission for an Adult Coloring Book. :) The author chose to make the book about great women in ancient history, and today’s drawing is Sobekneferu! She was a Egyptian Pharoah between 1785-1782 BC, and before she became Pharoah, she was apparently a part of a religious movement, or cult, known as “Shedet” that worshipped the crocodile god Sobek. I want to depict her in this piece as centered and calm while being surrounded by crocodiles, with a border on the edges of the page illustrating the labyrinth she completed after her father’s death, which had over 3000 rooms! I’ve attached 2 other photos to this post, and will be posting a few more photos throughout the week as the project continues!
