I like drawing it, since it's neutral.  Neither dark nor light for the human skin spectrum.  And pale skin is beautiful too.

same here. i love coloring a beautiful golden brown skin. Pale skin can be very pretty, especially when it look like marble or ivory.. but I get flushed too much so I mostly just look red ;p lol

I agree.  It's a shame people fight over skin tones, especially over the Egyptians.

The science proves they were mixed, the further down you got in Egypt, the darker the skin. But science shows they did have Caucasian hair, including red and even, but rarely, blonde hair. they must have been a beautiful unique people :)

I remember at a museum, the portraits from graves looked Roman and the people looked a little like me.  I'm a Black American but I look mixed.  It is quite amazing how unique they are.

Well, later on Egypt as taken by the Greeks and then the Romans, so there was a lot of different type of people in Egypt. a lot like the US in that way :)

Actually from my research Egyptians weren't black... as we know of black people... They actually come from the same ancestors assome of the Europeans, Celts, and Indians(from india, not native americans) cam from. In fact ancient Egyptians are found with Caucasian hair and before they were really influenced by the Greeks lot of the Egyptians had red and even blond hair. And of lot of modern Egyptians share DNA with ancient Egyptians.... Also I've notice into their art they've really distinct themselves from 'traditional Africans' and depict working women with darker skin and noble or royal woman with lighter.. this might suggest they could tan. However they were conquered by black civilizations and such and were probably a multicultural people and have lots of mixed people walking around. I draw my Egyptians so they can be depicted either way... not fully black, but definitely not white. There are actually lot for different ethnicity of Africans, ranging from all sorts of different looks.. and North Africa has lot of Arab type looking people living in it... so when people think African they usually only think of one kind of looking person.. Now who were truly powerful people who built amazing monuments and have culture similar to the Egyptians(though their language hasn't been deciphered yet) were the Nubian, they even had a warrior queen.. but people dont talk much about them... they made some real neat pyramids.... i should draw one of them sometime.. ;p
