Okay, the cartouche on the drape is something else!  :D  Also, I really like the rich contrasts of the gold trim and deep blue parts that look like inlaid lapis lazuli.  I'm particularly curious about what's going on with the *inside* of the shield.  Did you free-hand paint various glyphs on the inside?

Thanks for the kind words! I appreciate it greatly and it's good to be back on the forum.

Double thanks! The cartouche was a gamble, but I think it worked out. The gold is ArmyPainter Greedy Gold and the blue is cheap DecoArt metallic Ice Blue (NOT to be confused with FolkArt metallic Ice Blue, which is much paler, as on the Anubis Guard's headdress.)
Yes, the inside of the shield also has those scraps of sewn paper (or leather?) on it; I used a liner brush for freehand. It's not my best work (apparently the shield and arm were originally separate from the torso, but they were stuck together when I got it and it is not easy getting into some of those crannies), but I'm a strong believer in the 'finished is better than perfect' philosophy.
Afraid the hieroglyphs are gibberish, though; if I had to do it again I would look up some excerpts from the Book of the Dead or the Book of Going Forth by Day.

Ah a mummy fan. Cool scene and cool paintjobs. I like them all, much detail work as I see. I suppose you are a more patiently painter in fact I would get mad with this amount of tiny, tiny details. Good job!

Thank you! The attention to detail really varies a lot from day to day, depending on patience and energy, but this one worked out all right. Had to do it in three or four sessions though.
