Too much TMI...Too much TMI!!!

Ancient Egypt? AH! So that would explain the first page there. I need to brush up on my history there a bit. Also, it's pretty rare to see twin servants.

They are no twins, just minor BG characters (look at their tail) - the guards look the same as well, don't you think? BG characters that serve no purpose to the story will look like regular fennec foxes to minimize stressful work, just look how detailed Tetisheri is! XD LOL - She's my most detailed character when it comes to her royal outfit. Here on this page, she's only HALF dressed! LOL. She still needs her head dress and her rings, ear rings and bracelets. Trust me Tetisheri is the Matriarch of the family and was known to be the first Queen to wear the vulture crown. True history fact! :)

Photoshop powers ACTIVATE!

Power to zoom in!

Twins.jpg

Oh yeah! Those tails are slightly different on both. And I was referring to both servants (female and male). XD

But in all due seriousness, I must say that I had no idea the amount of detail that goes into each one of these characters. Tetisheri must really be blinging when she’s fully dressed.

If we give each guard a different look, it will get very confusing... Hence we kind of go a bit 'Prince of Egypt' style and when it comes to regular guards or servants, simple outfits, design, with just a minor change in the other one. POE had computer programs to duplicate in large scenes but I don't, ha-ha-ha! (Have no clue how it works... XD)

Though in the upcoming page a friend of mine wanted to design the guards of Seqenenre - they look a bit different. So I let her have a little fun. They are members of the Medjai tbc...

When a page has more characters and just bg-characters that serve no function in the story it's best to fade them a tad out.

Yes, Tetisheri, ... Tetisheri is bling bling! *imagines her now in a fancy car that's also bling bling*

I hope Ahmose and Khamose sing Once I called you Brother/The Plagues in a future page....
There has to be a parody of that!!
That's going to be hard, Ahmose and Kamose have the same birth mother; Ahhotep. Their father is Seqenenre Ta'o
They do have half sisters/brothers with the same father and their aunts. Ahmose-Inhapy and Sit-Djuhuty (I suppose a few more wives of none royal blood).

Two separate rock-inscriptions found at Arminna and Toshka, deep in Nubia, give the pre-nomen and nomen of Kamose and Ahmose side by side and were inscribed at the same time according to the epigraphic data. In both inscriptions the names of Ahmose follow directly below those of Kamose and each King is given the epithet di-ˁnḫ, Given Life, which was normally used only of ruling Kings. This indicates that both Kamose and Ahmose were ruling when the inscriptions were cut and consequently that they were co-regents. Since Kamose's name was recorded first, he would have been the senior co-regent making Ahmose junior co-regent.

I think only close brothers would do this kind of regency. :) - We will see a copy of the 'Reprimand' in a few months though! XD


I told you guys, I'm a nerd, I know a lot about Kamose and Ahmose. *giggle-fit* XD
