Battle across Ginnungagap 1 Picture

A piece which I plan to be a triptych of images depicting the birth of the world according to Norse Mythology, this is the first panel, where Odin is birthed into the eternal void; Ginnungagap, a tundra of giants.

I'm still battling against digital art, and losing I fear. I chose to approach this image by completing it first in Black and White, and then proceeded to apply colour passes over it, to keep the colour scheme subdued and unopressive.

Still hating on edges, so this is just a coloured line drawing, and not an actual painting.
