I really like this style as it's the kind of style I like to draw in often, however I think it's far too detailed for the type of work that I'm doing and I can't imagine it printing very well on worksheets.
Image shows concept art of the movie
I think something like this would be much more appropriate. It's humorous, fun, simple yet effective. To a child of 9, I also think this is much more appropriate than the one above. I have to remember it is worksheets I am illustrating, not a book...or a Disney movie!
This image has the same kind of humour. I think I'm leaning much more towards the similar side of things with inspiration from images such as these.
EGYPTIAN STYLE ART
This is a style I wanted to try. Egyptian artists drew flat and never twisted the body. Shoulders were broad, the face was in profile and no face was ever pictured from the front. The eye was also placed directly on the side of the head. I quite like this because it's simple, easy to cut out and I could see it sitting well on my worksheets with information.
These drawings I've done are more 'free,' perhaps more in my own style I'd say, but still trying to keep it 'Egyptian-y' with the flatness (especially of the Pharaoh in the front)
