what i like most about this piece that i would like to incorporate into my own boss concept is the impression he presents of himself by the way he stands and his look. Just by looking at the character you know he is someone of power and not to be taken lightly. this is something i wish to project onto my own characters.

The ancestry of the Roman alphabet from Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs) to Semetic (early Hebrew) to Phoenician to Greek. (J, U, and W were late additions to the Roman alphabet.) The Ancient Egyptian name for their own writing system was "Metu Neter" - meaning divine speech. "Hieroglyphs" is a Greek word - "hieros" means "sacred", "glyph" means writing.
