I was doing some reading on some of my cultural mythology and was inspired to draw Ashur. There aren't many details available on the gods, so this is my take on him. I focused on the character for this drawing and didn't bother with a read background.

From Wikipedia: "Ashur is an East Semitic god, and the head of the Assyrian pantheon in Mesopotamian religion, worshipped mainly in the northern half of Mesopotamia, and parts of north-east Syria and south east Asia Minor which constituted old Assyria. He may have had a solar iconography."
