I read this question somewhere and could not find it on WikiAnswers!!!
I looked up some sites and info and came up with this…..
The Egyptian drew heads + eyes + legs + feet Sideways (profiles)!!! But the shoulders + chest are drawn as if you were looking at them from the front. Although it seems stiff and unnatural, this way of drawing makes the drawings more visually appealing and makes them appear alive and ready for action doing everyday chores or so…
Also, notice that men are usually drawn with darker colors than women!
What do you think???
