In Darkness he waits by AlectorFencer In Darkness he waits by AlectorFencer
My little interpretation of Anubis.

The last time I drew Anubis was back in 2005 and I never uploaded the picture. This little idea has been in my head since yesterday evening, so I had to draw it, and complete it in the same night. :)
I love when spontaneous ideas happen to become real. It's so much fun. <3

Thank you so much for looking! <3

I keep coming back to this and I have to say that it is probably my favourite depiction of Anubis, and that is among many other great entries... A job so well done on lighting, pose and expression cannot do any less than capture my attention for a long while... I have looked at this so many times by now that I have to put it in my favourites. 

Hope everything is going as you want it to with Myre!

The thing I like about Anubis is that, he doesn't kill people. He actually waits for their time, unlike most gods of death. Well, that's just me :I

It is rather... strange, the feelings I get from this. I feel the darkness and inevitability that comes with any version of the "Reaper," yet I also feel a bitter sorrow in Anubis' eyes as he stares at the skull in his hands. Like he does not enjoy his job. It is very interesting.

Always liked the dark, mysterious nature of Anubis. This version is great, it's like he'd kill you, but somehow be cool about it.

When I saw this piece I immediately thought of Anubis before even reading the description (I didn't see it till I started replying). It is very realistic and benefits him in many ways. Well done capturing his essence and making him less gruesome in ways and more of a being to be "trusted" so to say. Lovely Piece ^_^

RIGHT IN THE ANCIENT EGYPT WEAKNESS. *faves*

I really like the emphasis of his death aspect, and his pose with the cool looking flamy skull seems to highlight his position as judge just enough so that it isn't lost in the overall. 8D Totally loving the ornaments on the side of his head!
