Description: Hello again members I am back with another drawing tutorial for you all and I hope that you will all enjoy. I will be showing you how to draw an Egyptian person cartoon style. I wanted to draw something different and out of the ordinary, so I thought that this would be the perfect thing to draw. Now the Egyptian race dates back to five thousand years ago and as you know they are the ones that are responsible for the building of the all famous Pyramid, Sphinx statues, and many other incredibly designed buildings that these people are known for. Egyptians are also known for their mathematical skill. It was this skill that energized Greek mathematicians, including Pythagoras, to perfect their work until it was efficient enough to pass it on in written recordings. Take the mathematical skill it took to build the great Pyramid, I mean the structure sits at one hundred fifty feet high and has a fifty one degree slope. Since the character that I am using is a female I will talk a bit about Egyptian females. First off Egyptian woman are known for their heavily lined eye make-up that flare at the end corners of their eyes. They had very elegant clothing as well for five thousand year old fashion. Gold was the common jewelry used to accessorize their attire. There is four famous female Egyptian woman that I know of that is a big part of our history around the world. The first is Hatshepsut; she was a ruler from the 18th destiny from 1479 to 1458 B.C. Next up was of course the all famous Cleopatra, she too was a at some point ruler of Egypt. Now rulers were called Pharaohs and even though these rulers were woman, they too were considered Pharaohs. Lastly there was Queen Nefertiti, another famous name from Egyptian history and then Egyptian queen Arsinoe II. All in all I guess you can say that Egyptian woman played a big part of our history's make-up. This tutorial will show you how to draw an Egyptian person step by step. I hope you have fun with this lesson I made it simple enough for everyone to enjoy and tackle.
