I actually though of doing Sobek instead, sobek is a pretty interesting looking character.

Maybe make Ammit? That'd be an interesting one to make. Half hippo, half crocodile and half lion.

Yeah, she's also cool. I actually think set looks pretty cool along with thoth. If I make a new skin, I might do one of those two maybe.

Thoth's nose would be funny to make, considering he is an... urm... I forgot, was it an Ibis? It was something that ate stuff in the mud, so it looked like it's beak was a writing instrument. :D

yeah that's correct xD It's really cool, I love how the philosophies run off of actual animals and looks, even their writing is very visual, very artistic. Osiris could be another neat one. The green god with a golden penis XD!

Lol, I don't think the mods would find that one very appropriate! xD Maybe do Amon-Ra? Green monkey man!

Or maybe do Ma'at? Bird-woman!

I like ma'at that's a good one ^_^ I was kidding, osiris just has a story with that. I think he lost a bet or something, somehow, he lost his penis and his wife Isis replaced it with gold. xD of course i wouldn't animate that in lol.

Thanks! The only problem that I see with this skin would be that the shading and coloring could be improved a little, so I have some tips if you want help. Anyways, great use of the helmet layer. :)

Yeah I felt the same way after I uploaded it. I wasn't sure if it was just the fact that it's mine and I felt self conscious about it or something, or that the upload made it weird looking in quality. Pretty soon when i have time, I'll work on bringing in more warmth to the color of the skin. And if you have any advice for any parts feel free to tell me, I appreciate it :)

I think that you should base your coloring on the purple shading technique:
http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=pixel+art+tutorial#/d320ykn

[size=small]It's a great way to make your skins look better, it's very easy too. :) But as for the shading, just try and have a light source in mind, where will it be darker/brighter? For example, on the inside of the arms is a great place to make it darker, as it makes sense if you have some kind of light source from above.[/size]

Cool! Maybe work on the facial features a little more? Utilize the hat layer.

Thank you for the advice, I will work on it some more : ) I'm thinking about changing the hair a bit as well. I could try to add some whiskers also. ^_^

I'm not as certain on this as I used to be, but basically she is considered the goddess of affection/love. She used to only represent lions I think, but then changed and represented all felines. I used to know quite a bit more egyptian mythology but I'm really rusty now.
