DEITIES PROJECT

CHARACTERS

INTRODUCTION & COMMENTARY

Deities of Duat and DEITIES Project includes a large cast of Ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. There will be a personal focus on character design — and the various relationships dynamics between the deities — to help make the cast feel recognizable to the ancient myths, but still specifically suited to the project.

While all the deity characters are derived from Egyptian mythology and artwork, these visual designs are of my personal interpretations, and their use will be associated with DEITIES project. These designs are open to my adjustment as the story and project develops, and any information regarding the characters and their relationships are subject to change.
