OC-Challenge: Mythology- Bast by evalesco5 OC-Challenge: Mythology- Bast by evalesco5
:iconoc-challenge: This is for the OC-Challenge, where you were supposed to include your characters in some sort of mythology, or make them a mythological figure.

I've been obsessed with Egyptian mythology since second grade when I saw the show 'Mummies Alive' (I loved Nefertina XP), so I wanted to draw my own version of my favorite Egyptian goddess, Bast :) I decided not to give her the head of a cat, and make her look more human with just a few feline characteristics. She is holding symbols commonly associated with her- the ankh and a sistrum. Below her is my original character, Micaiah. He grew up in Eygpt, and, as he has a fondness for cats, I believe that Bast would have been is patron goddess, and so here he is praying to her/making an offering of incense.

Not too many did Egyptian mythology for the contest. A rel original take on Bast here, but she still looks as she should. The moon and texture on the sand-y pillars are well rendered. She looks quite serene and benevolent as a goddess.
