Thoth by NightElf86 Thoth by NightElf86
UPDATE: Added background! I created it myself, using this epic tutorial:
[link] by ~For-as (Thank you! :aww:)

I'm not sure I'm quite satisfied with it, but that's what my friend wanted for background and it's definitely better than no background whatsoever (I hope). ^^;

**************

This is a gift for a friend. :)

For all those who don't know and want to learn:

Thoth ( /ˈθoʊθ/ or /ˈtoʊt/; from Greek Θώθ, from Egyptian ḏḥwty, perhaps pronounced ḏiḥautī) was considered one of the more important deities of the Egyptian pantheon. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. As in the main picture, Thoth is almost always shown holding a Was (a wand or rod symbolizing power) in one hand and an Ankh (the key of the Nile symbolizing life) in the other hand. His feminine counterpart was Seshat, and his wife was Ma'at.
