So here's an update on how my project has been going. At this early-ish stage, I'm just working on the drawings, not the paintings yet.
It's been wonderful getting to spend such extended time at my drawing board!
I started out by revisiting the pieces that I had already done a lot of work on (see previous posts) and seeing if I could improve them. I did the most work, I think, on changing some things for my Freyja picture (below you'll see reference photos for her hand that I took of myself), but I've also totally changed the figure on the Thor picture. The other changes were a little more minor.
Above you'll see a photo of a new one I'm working on for the Norse goddes, Nott (Thor's grandma). She rides along the sky to bring night to the world every day. I'm excited to get to put a cool horse in this one.
I'm itching to do some dragons, so maybe I'll work on that creature next. I'm still deciding if I'm going to do Nidhogg (the dragon who perpetually gnaws on the roots of the world tree), or Jormungandr a.k.a. the Midgard Serpent (the sea serpent who encircles the world)
Well, off to draw some more!
