Nefertiti, Queen of Egypt by Aliciane Nefertiti, Queen of Egypt by Aliciane
Nefertiti, Queen of Egypt

Medium : Digital Painting
Software : Krita, Gimp 2.6

She is probably one of the most famous Egyptian queens along with Cleopatra (even though the latter was in fact of Greek origin). Wife of the Pharaoh Akhenaten, some believe she briefly ruled during the time between her husband's death and Tutankhamun's reign. I like to believe this as well :) This representation is based upon her famous bust found by archeologists in 1912. In her time, she was believed to be the most beautiful woman in the world, so I hope I did her justice. I have a long time fascination for Antiquity, and for Ancient Egypt in particular, I've wanted to draw something related to Egyptian culture for a while. I've been inspired by the beautiful actress Lupita Nyong'o to paint this portrait.
