Gods of the North by the-Orator Gods of the North by the-Orator
My personal interpretations of the Aesir. I drew a good handful of the goddesses (and Hel, but she's doesn't quite count as a goddess) and most of the gods (I didn't draw Aegir).

Before taking on this project, I had NO idea how fun drawing beards was! I mean its like hair! But on someone's face!!!!! AADDSFHJSDHDJF!

I originally sketched these out in my sketchbook, then colored them on photoshop.

I love your interpretations! Your Vanir are exactly how I imagined them in the myths.

I like Hel a lot. These something about her that I like. and yes I know who her father and brothers our. Maybe it's the split
Maybe its just me,  but do you think the norns may be more sinister than Loki or his children? I say that mainly because fate isn't something anyone should or claim to have control over.

Haha, Balder really does look like Legolas, kinda! A more fruity Legolas, but I see where you're coming from. XD
Anyway, I really love all your designs! Odin, Hel and Vali are my favourites, but they're all great. :3 Such personality in single images~

Hey! I loved your Loki Sketches and your interpretations of the Aesir look stunning! Marvel's Loki got me into Norse Mythology, but I still have a lot to learn! In my country the only 'known' god is Thor and it has been really exciting to see there are so many more gods with amazing stories to be read. Your work will certainly help me give faces to the names!
PS: Yes, I just made an account so I could tell you how much I liked it!
