Musician of the month: Egyptian drummer

Hi everyone! In this rainy Sunday afternoon, nothing better than to paint a figure related to warmth and sun. I also would like to challenge myself once again (2017 saw a complete failure, only 5 guys instead of 12): to paint a musician each month.

So, a musician under the sun ? The best would be an Egyptian drummer, for my New Kingdom army !

Ecce homo (after a famous Angus McBride illustration, no doubt):




And to show that he doesn't play alone in the desert,  a family picture (me, seating on the left :))

Hope you like him. I must say that the Caesar range is a real pleasure to paint.

    1. I used GW Mournfang Brown, enlighted with GB Bronze flesh (old name). Not the same colors as usual, which is why he is a bit darker - I need a variety in flesh tones.
      Concerning the royal guard, he didn't know anything before YOU spoke !! Sceavus, the name of a roman spy I think :D

    2. Actually Sceavus means "left handed"...that is always confusing for friend and foe :)
