Ancient Egyptian Series: The Nile

The Next item up in my ancient Egyptian series is the Nile River.

The Nile played an extremely important role in the lives of the ancient Egyptians. It gave life to their civilization with it's fertility. The Nile gave them the water to irrigate their crops, water to drink, a means of travel, which helped in politics.  It even played a large role in the life of their Gods and Goddesses. The Nile is believed to what gave the ancient Egyptians the basis of their Religion. Osiris' phallus basically caused the Nile to be Fertile. I am sure everyone learned about the Nile in school so there is no reason to really talk about it.

This is the look that I created for it:

For this I thought of gleaming water and for the darker part is inspired by the black sediment that the Nile leaves on the shore/land.
