Color Drawing Of Forseti


A remarkably slow night-shift brings us a more colorful portrait of Forseti giving the law. This is based off a somewhat different version of my original pencil drawing. He looks a good deal more cheerful here.

Drawing Of Loki

This is a devotional drawing of Loki I created this morning. I used pastels on black paper, but I had to balance out the colors with my art software, as they were far too muted at first.

My printer definitely had some trouble with it.

Pastels seemed very appropriate for a Loki piece. They're not the most precise medium and can blur in unpredictable ways. Pastels were also a childhood favorite--I got all sorts of joy and amusement from them, which is exactly the sort of thing Loki approves of. In any case, the earlier strokes felt like starting off with a mask, a blank and inhumane visage. This gradually gave way to human features and skin tones. I didn't plan this piece out ahead and had some tense moments with it here and there, but I'm very happy with the results.
