Norse Mythology has often been the subject of total badassery! & this portrayal of the Norse king of the gods & many other aspects of mortal lives is shockingly incredible!

The idea of blending god, his faithful steed; the 8 legged Sleipnir, the rave duo Huginn & Munin as well as the wolf duo Geri & Freki into this macarbre but nonetheless incredile design!

The almost biomechanical appearance of this creation gives off an aura of uneasiness & can also look rathe disturbing if one isn't prepared to see the image here in full detail but aside this, the detail & the style used is perfectly relevant to create this interesting & dark portrayal of a known Norse god!

Let's hope to see more creations as unique as this

Why does he have a sword? Odin uses a spear, a spear is his symbol too, Gungnir.
Reply
:icontgping:
TGping Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
I know all about his sword. I intentionally chose the sword over the spear for this instance. Does it help that his sword is made of Yggdrasil roots? In my imagination I think that the yggdrasil wood is stronger than metal...

Anyways, I do have plans to add a spear for his next incarnation.

So many time have I seen artist draw something and not know what it was. Its cool art work on their part, but it just adds that much more when the artist does there home work and it shows.

Yeah, it really does make a difference, I do a lot of sketches to get things right. And I like to read up on what I draw.

Are the wolf arms based on Fenrir, Freki & Geki, or Garm?

Also, are the raven wings based on Odin's eyeball ravens, or Hraesvelgr?
Reply
:icontgping:
TGping Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
The arms are based on Freiki and Geiki :)

And those are his eyeball ravens, as well as his eight legged horse sleipnir :)
