Olafski

This is my personal blog, for both art and general tumblr stuff, I guess.
My take on the king god of Norse mythology. Got a little tired of seeing depictions of him as this old guy with a short white beard and golden armour. In the myths, Odin spent a great deal of his life travelling the world to learn and gain knowledge. The antlers were added because I think an ancient god should be a bit more “primal” than the stories made up by men in the viking age.
This is the design that will be used in a comic I am planning to make called The Eye of Odin.

    This actually reminds me a little of the character designs in The Secret of Kells. This is gorgeous.
