Here is the colored rendition of my earlier drawing showing Philos, a supporting character from my alternate history story set in Bronze Age Greece. He works as a shepherd in a small, rural Greek village lying north of the Egyptian colony of Dedenu. For this colored artwork, I've given Philos a tame Megantereon (a saber-toothed cat related to the Smilodon of the Americas) who helps him like a big sheepdog (or should that be sheep-cat?). After all, the whole story is set in an *alternate* timeline from ours. #originalcharacter #characterdesign #alternatehistory #ancientgreece #greek #bronzeage #oliveskin #hellenic #megantereon #sabertooth #sabertoothcat #sabertoothedcat #bigcat #digitalart #art #artistsoninstagram

Alternate Country #37 - Alternate History #7 - “Great Monchu Khanate.” - Consists of: 🇲🇳🇨🇳🇷🇺 - Alternate History: Start: 1279 End: 1827 Many little things led to the fall of the Mongols. In this timeline, Genghis Khan stays alive for another decade, gaining more control. Even after his death, the rest of the empire was more stable. Although it eventually lost most of its western and Chinese land, it held onto Mongol populated lands and East Turkestan. With no people really living up north, they expanded the empire into what is now the Russian Far East. They unified with the Manchus against the rapidly expanding Russians. Over time, they gave more and more land away, before eventually signing deals to be absorbed by Russia in the 1800’s, on the significant 600 year anniversary of the death of Genghis Khan, the Mongol empire officially ended. - Flag Meaning: This flag shows three peoples and three geographic features. blue symbolizes the Uyghurs and other Muslims of the west as the well as water. The white shows the Mongols and the snow. The yellow shows the Manchurians and other Asians of the east and the yellow sun, as the east is where the sun rises. - Languages: Manchurian, Mongolian, Uyghur. Most Recent Leader: Min Ning(Khan) Capital: Karakorum Economy: Capitalist Motto: “Нэг газар олон хүн” (Neg gazar olon khün- One land many people) Animal: Takhi - #alternatecountries #alternatehistory #suoviroalternatecountries #mongols #khan #khanate #manchuria #uyghur #mongolia #china #russia #siberia #karakorum #genghiskhan #qingdynasty
This is a map of Hellas, the region now known as Greece, in the Middle Bronze Age within an "alternate history" timeline that I've created for one of my stories. In the period this story takes place in, the Hellenic kingdom of Mycenae has risen as a new major native power in the southern region of Hellas (aka the Peloponessian peninsula), whereas on the northwestern coast there stands a Kemetian (Egyptian) colony named Dedenu that was founded three centuries prior. To the near north of Dedenu is a rural Hellenic village where the herdsman Philos, one of the story's supporting characters, lives. Meanwhile, the highlands and plains in the middle of the region is occupied by the fierce Macedonian tribes, ancestors of Alexander the Great, who will eventually be pushed further north by the Hellenic expansion. This map is by no means complete or exhaustive, mind you, as I simply focused on the locations that would almost certainly be invoked within the story itself. #alternatehistory #cartography #maps #map #hellas #greece #ancientgreece #kemet #egyptian #digitalart #art #artistsoninstagram

Павел Корнев, цикл "Приграничье" Про первые четыре книги я давеча высказывался крайне нелицеприятно, причина этому, как выяснилось, нехаризматичныц для меня протагонист. Со сменой ГГ на торговца с простой русской фамилией Апостол, будто сошедшей с экрана голливудского боевика, получилось вполне себе чтение для общественного транспорта. Для фанатов, пожалуй все те же 8/10, а вот лично мне - 7/10. #чтопочитать #ячитаю #книги #книга #постапокалипсис #детектив #попаданцы #приключения #книжнаяполка #книголюб #фантастика #боевик #postapocalipsis #андрейкруз #iread #book #books #bookshelf #bookworm #action #cowboys #criminal #novel #detective #adventures #alternatehistory #приграничье #корнев #лед
Here is a sketch of the fortifications of Dedenu, an Egyptian colony erected on the western coast of Greece beginning in the reign of Pharaoh Amenemhat II (1914-1879 BC). This is the (fictitious) hometown of my priestess character Itaweret, the protagonist of an "alternate history" story I am working on. The architecture of the ramparts you see here is based on those of real Egyptian forts such as Buhen (near the modern Egyptian/Sudanese border) and Tjaru (in the region of the Sinai Peninsula). By the way, palm trees actually do grow in Greece as depicted in this scene. When I visited Greece as a kid on summer vacation, I was struck by how much the country's climate and scrubby vegetation resembled that of southern California (the same turned out to be true for Rome, Italy). It was a fascinating surprise considering how we Americans tend to stereotype Europe as being all lush and temperate like, say, Ireland or Germany. #alternatehistory #ancientgreece #greece #ancientegypt #egyptian #kemet #african #architecture #ancienthistory #illustration #drawing #sketch #art #artistsoninstagram

This ancient bowl is said to reflect the character of those who view it. • If you see White - You are pure of spirit. Your favourite animal is a panda. • If you see Blue - You are kind and caring. You volunteer at the local homeless shelter. • If you see Red - You are outgoing and adventurous. It's hard work keeping up with you! • If you see Green - You are torn betwixt worlds, between sweet Elysium and unspeakable annihilation; your spirit writhes with twisted phantoms that howl into the Stygian void; sulphurous flashes of arcane magic claw at your flesh as grotesque daemons from the stars ooze chaos and shadow, lurking below in the primordial realms of Az'aketh, whilst forlorn entities loom above, fixing their deathless gaze hungrily on your soul. As you plunge deeper into the endless abyss, the wretched screams of your splintered mind echo unanswered across boundless space. - On the plus side, you'll have an unexpected windfall on Tuesday! • #throwbackthursday #throwbackbruseum #alternateuniverse #alternatehistory #ancient #bowl #divination #history #historian #historybuff #ancienthistory #historylover #heritage #archeology #archaeology #archeologia #archeologist #mystery #wonder #museum #museumlover #colour #color #fun #humor #humour #london #londonlife

While waiting for my hair to grow back, I decided to draw a picture of a alternate Fascist Sarawak Coat of Arms for my Grandfather. I will probably make an improved one later. Country: Kingdom of Sarawak Government: Fascist Leader: Vyner Brooke Alliegence: Axis Powers Short Scenario: in 1919 an economic depression affected Sarawak, particularly It's maritime trade industry which only got worse and worse, negatively impacting the country. Sarawak was effectively a British puppet at the time. The concept of restoring the power to the Rajah became widely popular. In 1922, Italy became fascist effectively popularizing the ideology. On December 1941 Peal Harbour was never attacked in this timeline. Instead, when Japan invaded Malaya, Sarawak severed ties with the British Empire and conquered the rest of Borneo with Japanese help. Eventually, After the destruction of the RAF in Britain, The British submitted to German Air power (Neville Chamberlain, doesnt die in this timeline so Churchill doesnt become PM) The Second Great War ends after the fall of Singapore on 15 February 1942. (The Non-Agression pact between Germany and the USSR was maintained) The Rajah leads an industrializing and militarized United Borneo becoming rich off oil. THE END #Sarawak #brooketrust #rajahsarmy #rajahsarawak #fascism #conceptart #alternatehistory #KingdomOfSarawak

The Extraordinary Contraptions! Always enjoy working for them and running tables. They are great people and have contributed so much to my life. Sometimes it can be dicey working for friends and SOs, but they’ve always treated me well For some reason I’ve always loved this picture. Though it is sadly missing Teodore. Something sweet about it. @fishballishere you’ll find my giant nerd life partner on the left! (6’7” in a kilt!) #besties #musicfamily #indiemusic #artrock #alternatehistory
