I've always been fascinated with Egyptian Art and its mythology, this drawing was based on the supreme statue of Chepren, one of the great masterpieces of art, it represents the image of the ideal man and of God incarnate in man.
Behind his head there is a falcon that embraces the head of the king, this falcon is the God Horus, as you can see I've only included a part of his head in the drawing, maybe I'll do another with the full rendering of the original sculpture.

You have some great work on your blog. I like this one particularly. Very imposing character. I have tried charcoal and find it quite difficult to control, but you obviously don't have that difficulty.
