Cleopatra by kelleybean86 Cleopatra by kelleybean86
I've always loved Cleopatra, and after reading the book "Cleopatra: A Life" by Stacy Schiff, I was inspired to draw her. You can see a step-by-step of this drawing in progress: [link]

Intéressant essai de reconstitution.
Il ne faut pas oublier que Cléopâtre VII était macédonienne et appartenait à la dynastie des Ptolémées. Elle en sera sa dernière représentante.
Vouloir représenter Cléopâtre en Égyptienne est sans doute l'expression d'une erreur même si les Ptolémées ont toujours respecter les valeurs égyptiennes et ont pu se faire représenter, dans l'art traditionnel, parfois revêtus des parures royales et religieuses de ce pays.

I really like how you gave her all the scrolls, as it helps show the viewer that she's adept at statecraft. :)

Absolutely beautiful! Cleopatra is one of my favorite pharaohs, her history is so rich and I feel you made her beautiful and noble at the same time. Thoughtful with obvious research

Sophisticated. At least a representation of Cleopatra that's accurate.
