If the ancient Egyptian and Chinese cultures ever met, how would they draw each other in their own native art styles?

I would say drawing in a recognizably "Chinese" style was tougher, because while the Egyptian style and the creative liberties it takes with human anatomy are very distinctive, the way Chinese artists would draw their human subjects seems a bit more realistic and less obviously stylistic. However, when drawing the Egyptian guy's face, I did study how the ancient Chinese would draw portraits of their emperors to get it to look as stylistically Chinese as possible.

The textual labels above are meant to name the opposite culture's country; on the left are the Chinese characters for "Egypt" and on the right are the letters in "China" converted to Egyptian hieroglyphs.

Pretty good. I like the contrasting styles, and the colors are also all a consistent tone. Good job, man. 4/5
