Court Of The Crimson King by Catula Court Of The Crimson King by Catula
A quick picture of Iris in another Egyptian-themed costume. Harem dancer, more or less (Khebeyet in some ancient Egyptian tongue, I think), and only because I felt like drawing it. I think overall it came out quite nicely, though her pose is a little bland. :P

Time: 2.5~3 hrs

Thanks! She never wore the outfit in the show, but even in her normal attire, she's incredibly cute. ^^

Indeed, a good "starter" concept. :) My poses still leave a lot to be desired, it seems... :XD:

Very cute. But about the title: What does King Crimson have to do with this?

Well, I had imagined the picture being of Iris as a dancer in the court of a pharaoh/raja/king, and given the crimson colour of the background, I decided to make a reference to one of my favourite Prog-Rock groups of them all. ;)

Ah. I liked the reference since I'm a fan of the band as well; But I didn't get the implication that there was a king in the room.

Yeah, I guess I didn't specifically make it known that she was dancing in a king's court, but I often end up making a reference to things I like in my picture titles.

Merci! I've had a thing for the Egyptian culture lately, so I'm trying to entertain the idea by expanding it into my art.
