Ammut the Devourer

Ammut, or Ammit, is the crocodile-lion-hippopotamus beast from ancient Egyptian lore. The creature was said to devour impure souls before they fully reached the afterlife.

After finishing transferring the sketch, I traditionally colored Ammut using watercolors and colored pencils on cold press illustration board.

I scanned and finalized Ammut with Photoshop CS5, adding a hieroglyph texture into the background as well as additional tints and shades.
