Mummy # 3 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

Sorry for not posting for the past few days. I have been completely swamped with both work and scanning more absolutely fantastic portraits. Over the last week I've gotten a pretty large number of portraits that I am incredibly excited to start sharing with you. There are some that are breathtakingly gorgeous!!!

Today we feature a new portrait from Anna....

In Worlds’ End, Petrefax retells a story of his experience at an air burial.

According to the rituals of an air burial, each member of the funeral party tell a tale.

Master Hermas tells a true story from his youth when he and Klaproth were apprentices under Mistress Veltis.

When Veltis was an apprentice she accidentally broke a flask of preserving fluid. She was ashamed and ran and hid from her master. She chose the catacombs beneath the city as her hiding place. In the catacombs she travelled a path she had never taken before, passing a wall of mummies, and eventually finding herself in a huge room with six cerements hanging in that room.

This is one of the mummies that she passed on her decent into the catacombs.

This mummy appears in Sandman # 55, on page 20, in panel 3.

This is a pretty straightforward and awesome portrait from Anna. I really like the details of the bandages. I like that they are not necessarily uniform and the shading along the edges gives a realistic feel to the aging cloth. I also really like the blackness that Anna used for the background. It really accents the starkness of the character.
