    Ramses After the Elixer

    I wanted to remake this one of Ramses the Immortal-a character of Anne Rices book "The Mummy."
    Using Peter's rabbit hole secrets, and eraser I was able to have fun with effects and textures of different layers.
    I hope you like it. Thanks for checking it out.

    Sandy ........this is a nice incorporation of what you have learned from Peter and your own great painting talent....the colors are rich and subtle .. having the face multiple times adds to it surreal quality...

    I remember the original...this one is even better...great job neighbor
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thank you dear Katie, I appreciate your kind words. I thought he was gorgeous, and that he deserved to be redone.

    I already know this guy, but it's interesting to see him in a sort of psychedelic version while he's evocating supernatural spirits forces through the arcana of the ancient Epyptians magical rituals ....
    well, maybe not that bad to re-phrase it in correct English should You start a story about this character.
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    Thanks Cesare. I wish I still had the book, but I returned it to my sis in law. I will go ahead and mention a bit about it though. I think it would be a great movie. The pharaoh in the museum was just another person so that the real Ramses would remain in secret and asleep. Once discovered...many exciting events would take place. A book not for young readers, and would offend a few, but one that I found very entertaining. A book I didn't want to put down and read through pretty quickly. Anne emphasized a very virile and sexy man whom loved women, was a gentle soul, yet in no way a weak natured person, loving all life. He demanded justice and was quite a warrior. This is how I imagined him to look after reading about her description.
