Bagan
β€’
Bagan is an ancient city located in the Mandalay Region of Myanmar. From the 9th to 13th centuries, the city was the capital of the Pagan Kingdom, the first kingdom that unified the regions that would later constitute modern Myanmar. During the kingdom's height between the 11th and 13th centuries, over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of over 2,200 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day. β€’

Back to Scribal school! I've been experimenting with different sizes of script, different levels of clay-wetness, and writing in Babylonian rather than in Sumerian.
.
.
The first few lines I wrote when the clay was wet, and are from the end of the Babylonian 'Epic of Creation', when the god Marduk gets given the title of the former head of the pantheon:

Back to scribal school! i've been experimenting with different sizes of script, different levels of clay-wetness, and writing in babylonian rather than in sumerian.
.
.
the first few lines i wrote when the clay was wet, and are from the end of the babylonian 'epic of creation', when the god marduk gets given the title of the former head of the pantheon: "since he created the heavens and fashioned the earth, enlil, the father, called him by his own name, 'lord of the lands'..." (i copied more but stopped in the middle of a word because the clay was cracking!)
.
.
the next few lines are from the epic of gilgamesh, and i wrote them out about 12 hours later, when the clay was starting to harden. i also tried to write the signs as small as they are on the surviving versions of the story, which seemed to be a lot easier with the clay having hardened a bit! i struggled to keep the signs in a straight line though, just like when i'm writing in english πŸ˜‚. in this section, uta-napishti has survived the flood, and is offering incense to the gods, but everyone's hoping enlil (who brought the flood) doesn't find out that someone survived: "...make me remember these days, and never forget them! all the gods shall come to the incense, but to the incense let enlil not come..."

When a place gets crowded enough to require ID's, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere. The best thing about space travel is that it made it possible to go elsewhere. β€” Robert A. Heinlein

Final design. Time to paint and render it. This is the Phoenician king Azemilcus of the island of Tyre. He was the king of Tyre when Alexander besieged the island, turning it into a peninsula so his siege towers could reach the walls of a city surrounded by the sea. This happened at the beginning of Alexander's conquest of Asia (I already made a post about Tyre, with a phoenician soldier). I think I'm going a bit fast with this project. I've already painted some Central Asian characters that would appear almost at the end of the story (with India being the next and final chapter), while I've missed many others from the earlier campaigns in the Levant and Western Asia. As you can imagine, this is a complex project, with many historical figures and military units involved. So I will go back and forward trying to illustrate what I've missed.
