Obscure Fandoms: Nefertina from Mummies Alive by Acaciathorn Obscure Fandoms: Nefertina from Mummies Alive by Acaciathorn
This here is Nefertina from Mummies Alive, a 90s cartoon chock-full of historical inaccuracies and bad Egyptian puns. :XD: I remember pretty much nothing about this show...but my internet research has indicated that it was on around the same time as Gargoyles, which I remember in vivid detail :o ...not sure what that says about the quality of "Mummies Alive" ^^;

But yeah. This undead lady has a badass design, so I drew her. I'm satisfied with everything but the hair (it's supposed to look dry and tomb-tousled, but I think it came out like a mop)...I tried to make her skin look splotchy cause hey, she's been dead for thousands of years. Hooray!

This is the third installment of the Obscure/Underloved/Atypical Fandoms Series - which will feature characters that I've never drawn before and who come from fandoms that are lesser-known or not as popular here on dA. P.S. Anatomy issues are due to the fact that she's literally falling apart due to decomposition, and not due to the fact that my artistic abilities still leave a lot to be desired. ;P

What's up with her skin, anyway?  Is she sweating or something?

Was actually a pretty good series, it didn't get as many seasons as gargoyles I believe, and the story was never fully resolved. I thought the character designs for the show were in some ways more original then gargoyles, which I liked better, it was a nice mix of modern tech with a sense of the ancient eqyptiness.
Anyway lovely work ^_^

I think it's very interesting and great that you are drawing from obscure fandoms! They need more love! :D I don't know any of them though, but they look great! I think her skin looks more sparkly than splotchy ... don't kill me!

It's cuneiform...a written language from Mesopotamia and the "lingua franca" of the whole region around Egypt and the Levant.

I just baaaaarely remember commercials for this... but it reminds me of another cartoon chock-full of historical inaccuracies and bad Egyptian puns... did you ever see a cartoon about a girl who volunteers at a museum and this snooty little-kid pharaoh gets woken up, and he has a black cat as a 'butler' type character, and they have adventures? Man I can't remember the name of it and I can't find it via google. But it happened! I think through PBS.

Anyway. What anatomical issues?!?? Srsly I would mummify for your skillz!

you mean Tutenstein? I remember that show...the main girl was voiced by Crystal Scales, the same voice actress who voiced Libby from Jimmy Neutron :3

It's called Tutenstein (i'm pretty sure I spelled that right). It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. :shrug:

(They're gonna save the day. The Egyptian way.)

Great pic! I loved this show. But this character's name always annoyed me -- Nefertiti was already a woman, after all. Why stick an extra feminine ending on?

I'm pretty sure they wanted to make her name sound more modern. Kinda fits in with the whole pun thing they were going for (like the Hot-Ra...seriously? lol)
