The Wedding Preparations by Hellanim The Wedding Preparations by Hellanim
After some time I finaly got myself to add something... I have to much work so don´t have a time for dA :-(

Scandinavian (Norse) mythology ... and here it goes "The Wedding Preparation in Åsgard", Thor like a lovely bride and Loki disguised as his bridesmaid :drool: ... I LOVE this myth ... How Thrym stole Thor´s hammer.

This is altogether perfect: Thor looks frustrated and furious (he has runs in his stockings already!) whereas Loki, in contrast, is really getting into the part! I like the one guy drooling over "bridesmaid" Loki, and Hugin and Munin up at the top watching it all! :D

Fantastic (and hilarious) take on the myth.  I adore the contrast between Thor and Loki here!

Sigyn (or whoever the woman behind him is) looks mildly worried at how much of a natural  Loki is at this

... does Loki use a frying pan as a mirror? I just noticed the shape...

Oh my gawd that sway-backed sweet thiang on the right holy moly! Poor Sigyn; Loki looks better in her dress than she does!

I love your work SO MUCH!!!

Sweet Jesus, this is SUCH a beautiful drawing! :wow: I'll admit that your style is not what I usually look at, but this picture just blew me away completely! :love:

I would be rolling on the floor laughing, not able to get out a word, when Thor would try to stick his hairy legs into stockings in front of me! :XD: :rofl:

And Loki -- DAMN, LOKI!! :drool: :faint: So beautiful, and the look on Sigyns and that guards face are hilarious! :D

Also, Odins ravens -- so lol! :XD:

All in all, a beautiful drawing, I love it! :)

Loki is enjoying Himself just WAYYYY too much here! His handmaided looks so nervous and He's just applying His lip gloss. XD

I also like the guy who's pointing over to where Loki was getting dolled up. The one doing the 'OK' hand gesture with the lecherous expression. "Hey guys! Get a peek at Laufeyson, he's HOT!"

I would love to see an animated feature about the Gods down in the style of your art. Your style is so distinct, and your color pallette is so unusual and striking - what was the inspiration behind it?

Thanks a lot! Actualy there will be a firs short animated movie next autumn 2013, first part from serie of 22 episodes. This design has been created especialy for this animation (I am working on it for some time already...)the whole concept (colors and whole ornamental stylisation is create to associate with real medieval scandinavian ornamental style from 10th century, usualy represented on carving in wood or on metal chiselling and jewelery.

Oh yes, it was a lovely tale, until Thor got his hammer back and literally just started killing everyone at the wedding O_o
I'm not very used to the amount of violence in these tales! ^^;

Amazing drawing! I really love it! (Loki is so comfortable being a woman, I love him!) <3

:nod: I agree with your points about the violence, I am not fan of it as well and I disagree with Thor's hammer wielding action at the end of the story. However I like the bride disguise part, it is simply delightfully funny to imagine - the most "manly" man between all Asir in the drag is simply priceless.
