ODIN by JeffStokely ODIN by JeffStokely
***FULL VIEW FOR FULL AWESOME!***
This is one of my personal favorite pieces and I also believe it's one of my best to date. And it's another one heavily influenced by Toppi as well as Konrad Dielitz

The runes on the stone read:
Here this way the wind does blow
Over those who've fallen
The lord of death walks this path
All Father, come reap


It also has some history! Last year at SDCC 2009 I lost my portfolio which included the original version of this commission. Remember this guy? [link] Eternal gratitude goes to ~callacurt for waiting over a YEAR for me to finish this badboy. I hope the wait was worth it. I decided to turn his $80 commission into a $200 one. If theres anyway to get a good commission out of me its to request something Norse related

:iconcallacurt: - Commissioner

Tools used: Bristol board, 0.5 mechanical pencil, Korean memory nib ink set, minor use of copic pens and LOTS o' ink

I bet it is! there are no borders when it comes to drawing a mysterious and visually unseen character, could be anyone or anything, there were lots of symbolism used in respect to the gods in many different cultures.
I simply love the technique, the black and white highlights the narrative of the character even more.. nice one! :D

I've just taken a brief look through your gallery, but I've fallen in love with your character designs and your beautiful lineart :D Odin looks... well, fierce, haha. I love the sweeping look of his hair and clothes, and the dark look on his face.

one great looking odin. out of all the great things and details of this piece, the way you managed to draw those two extra legs on odin´s horse, sleipnir, without them looking out of place, has got to be at the top.
well done, mate. commissioner must´ve been ecstatic when he got this.
cheers.

Thanks! I was pretty worried about fitting all 8 legs in because of the angle but then I remembered there's a version of Sleipnir with 6 legs in some cultures. Still a bit worried but I think I dodged the bullet on that one!
Glad you think it turned out well!
