Tutankhamon's body - line drawing ready

Took me three hours to transfer the drawing of Tutankhamon to the board, but now he is done. I tried to make the beads approximately right, but obviously I did not put all the details in place. My reference photo wasn't quite good enough for that. I squinted with my magnifying glass, tried printing details of the photo, but still it was blurry.

But thank goodness I found help. The Werner Forman Archive was more than kind and gave me permission to use their photo as a reference to this painting. Please check their wonderful resource of photos for anyone working in the field of history - be it studying of publishing. You will find their link on the link list.

Tut's Throne - Drawing of Tutankhamon's Head

It took me two hours just to transfer Tut's head with his crown onto the board. What an amount of details! And this is nothing yet... More tiny details coming. Lots of them.
