    ROUND #163 :: Envoy of the Khemethar
    DESCRIPTION

    Envoy of the Khemethar

    Nearly 6000 years ago, the Khemethar discovered a small blue planet on the edge of the galaxy, and sent an envoy to the primitive species that lived there. They made contact with a strange but industrious people in a place which first would be known as the Upper and Lower Kingdoms, and then the united nile valley would come to be known as Egypt.

    The primitive race could not completely understand where their new guests had come from, and explanations of their journey through the stars led the Egyptians to believe that they had met Gods. The Khemethar's mission being one primarily of study, they allowed the egyptians their belief in order to get closer into their culture and to study the people of this planet much more closely.

    Though a peaceful race in the grand sense of the word, they still suffered the same flaws as humanity, and fights often broke out between the members of the envoy - more than 2000 in number - some ending in injury, and death.

    The stories of their hardships, battles, and revelations to the Egyptian people became legendary, and finally mythical. When they took their leave of the egyptian people, they left an undeniable mark upon them.

    Notes :

    - Design One or More of the Khemethar envoy, based upon one of the Egyptian Gods (ie, Aten-Ra, Isis, Osiris, Set, etc)

    - You do not have to depict them as the Egyptians did - think of interesting things that they might have had/worn that might have been interpreted the way they were by the egyptians either for symbolic reasons, or simply because it was the closest thing that it looked like, not having the same technology/clothing available to them.

    "Khnum was one of the earliest Egyptian deities, originally the god of the source of the Nile River. Since the annual flooding of the Nile brought with it silt and clay, and its water brought life to its surrounds, he was thought to be the creator of the bodies of human children, which he made at a potter's wheel, from clay, and placed in their mothers' wombs. He later was described as having molded the other deities, and he had the titles Divine Potter and Lord of created things from himself."

    soknopais



    The god Soknopais, which was depicted as a crocodile or a man with the head of a crocodile was a powerful and frightening deity;
    in some Egyptian creation myths, it was Soknopais who first came out of the waters of chaos to create the world.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    One of the many envoys of the Khemethar, known as Thot. He gave science, writing and all other forms of geekness to the Egyptians as well as a hefty dose of walloping when warring factions became too close for comfort.

    OK, my take on Amun-Ra. Wish I had time to throw in some kind of background. Final is at the bottom.

    Anubis God of death

    Anubis god of death

    There is a theory among ufologist that some human have been kidnapped by alien forms for their ressources , as maybe some of you knows the human body contain precious materials like plasma , spinal cord etc... Those kidnapping are hided by our governements that would be the reason why we never heard of it !
    (you can believe it or not it's just a theory i found interesting to use for this CHOW)

    Historical text and picture about anubis ...
    The deceased enters from the left guided by Anubis. His heart is placed on the scales and the result is recorded by Thoth. Then Horus takes him in front of the judge Osiris for the final verdict. Behind the throne stand Isis and Nephtys.
    The picture associated to this texte PICTURE

    So from this theory and historical text , we could believe that Anubis was more like a doctor taking care of body conservation by embalming for futur "exportation" to his homeland, in purpose to extract from dead bodies the valuable ressources , to sell or to use we don't know, as for the heart it's still unknow why they were weighing it.
    Last thing , Thoth was in charge to write records of heart's weight ,it looks like they were dealing with merchandise more than a death cult .

    Thoth

    Envoy of the Kemethar: Thoth

    The planetologist Thoth was one of the first Kemethar to set foot on Terra about 6000 earth-years ago. In the following years, he studied the planet and the native population of the species that would call themselves homo sapiens sapiens millenia later. With his gleaming exoskeleton and bioluminescent crescent horn, he appeared to be a being with magical powers, and the technology he used made the natives believe even more in his power and wisdom. But they also learned something from him: The notebook Thoth was seen writing in frequently, inspired them to develop their own hieroglyph writing system. Later he should be known as the god of wisdom, writing and the moon.

    The captain's consort of the visiting Envoy of the Khemethar became something of a favourite amongst the people of Egypt. Less intimidating than some of her masked peers, the one that came to be known as Isis on planet Earth was cherished as a loving wife and mother, gentle and beautiful yet a strong figure whose powers went beyond the realms of life and death.

    This alien visitor was viewed as a god but really just liked showing off his glowing red ball trick.

    Hey everybody! This is my first piece of digital art in about two years...I recently decided I'd put down my tablet for long enough, and this seemed like the perfect way to start practicing again -


    In my concept, the Khemetar, despite their technological potency, are a species with a very weak constitution, and therefore require large life-sustaining suit-vehicles in order to exist anywhere outside of their home planet. The bright orbs which the Egyptians interpreted as solar disks were in fact pockets of stellar energy needed to power the suits (and placed on the head for temperature regulation). The three ambassadors depicted here were the Khemetar who came to be associated with (from left to right) the gods Djehuti (my username! aka Thoth), Osiris, and Bastet. Several of the features of the elaborate suits were incorrectly interpreted by the Egyptians, such as the arced breathing-support tube mistaken to be an Ibis' head, or tools and defensive instruments attached to a suits' arms as the crook and flail.

    here are my WIPS:


    This was a lot of fun, I can't wait to see what everyone else creates - it's good to be drawing again! :-)

    Fiiiiinal.... Still lots of tweaks I want to do it, but no more time today!

    Nut, Goddess of the Sky, often pictured as being made of stars. Her first glimpse of earth, the planet she comes to love more than life itself.
