Ma'at, Goddess of Balance by EmanuellaKozas Ma'at, Goddess of Balance by EmanuellaKozas
"...the perservation of Balance was utmost
importance, and cast into the sea was the
child Ma'at, to find a new land...riding on the
breath of Poseidon..."

Again, Inspired by Symphony X
This shall also be colored.

Ma'at was the Ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation. In Duat, the Egyptian underworld, the hearts of the dead were said to be weighed against her single Shu feather, symbolically representing the concept of Ma'at, in the Hall of Two Truths. A heart which was unworthy was devoured by the goddess Ammit and its owner condemned to remain in Duat.

It would be lovely if you would, I'd be very greatful! If you draw animal headed gods then Re, hawk headed sun god, Thoth, ibis headed wisdom god. But I don't mind, I'll be rooting for you! Good luck to which ever Egyptian god or goddess you draw! ^-^

I was gonna play with the goddesses part first from all the ancient religions and then move to gods since I am trying to improve my anatomy skills a bit (with a few sidekicks from Symphony X visions I am getting lol). Already done Re and Thoth, just need to fix some things on them still or maybe just add the full colored versions so you will be seeing that soon
