SIF and FREYR Picture

This week I bring you yet another set of illustrations created for the website NORHALLA, depicting one of my passions: norse mythology.

As my keen followers will attest, I've always been a huge fan of the Old Gods of Valhalla and I have a lot of illustrations here in my Gallery to prove it (and more are coming!). But I believe these are my best interpretations to date. The brief was simple, mostly because I had to work with very few directions except in that I had to try and convey the original roots of the myths with my particular style.
Everything from the colors, to the atmosphere and details of the images are carefully planned and I hope my passion does indeed show.

In this particular pieces, we have the wife of Thor, Sif, and the fertility god Freyr. Sif represents, personifies and is the source of spiritual strength and beauty.
Freyr represents and personifies fertility and is also associated with sacral kingship, virility and prosperity, with sunshine and fair weather. He used to be one of the most important gods in the norse pantheon.

Hope you enjoy it and please visit the website if you can:
