Maiherpi was an ancient Egyptian nobleman whose tomb was found in the Valley of the Kings near modern Luxor. Although his official title was "Royal Fan-Bearer", he is thought to have additionally served as an adviser or bodyguard for the New Kingdom Pharaoh Thutmose IV. Some have speculated that he was of Nubian heritage due to a depiction of him as jet-black in his copy of the Book of the Dead, but it must be remembered that sometimes Egyptian characters were painted jet-black to symbolize resurrected souls.

The Afro that Maiherpi wears here is based on an actual wig stitched onto his mummy.

Darth Vader without his helmet (inspired by a Chasing Army quote which called him a "Nubian god")

I draw them on paper, outline them with a black pen, and color them in GIMP.

My vision of Alexander "the Great" III, the famous Macedonian general who conquered the entire Persian Empire and brought about the so-called Hellenistic Age.

There's a huge debate on the interwebs over whether Alexander and his Macedonian people were Greeks as popularly believed or instead a separate ethnic group with their own language. I find the Macedonian side of the argument more persuasive, as ancient Greek writers explicitly called the Macedonians "barbarians" and otherwise spoke of the Greeks and Macedonians as if they were distinct peoples. Ergo, I decided to go with a more "barbaric" design for my rendition of Alexander, giving him a bearskin cape and Celtic-style face paint.

Drawn at UCSD and photographed with my iPhone.

Shepsit, a ranger-type character I plan to use for a role-playing game on another message board. Haven't figured out her personality or backstory yet.

This is supposed to be a lower-class peasant village in ancient Egypt. I actually have no idea what Egyptian peasant houses would have looked like during the Pharaonic period (as far as I know, the majority of the houses that have been recovered at archaeological sites belonged to nobility and middle-class artisans, not peasantry), so this is only a layman's guess. I still like drawing simple huts like these though.
