SKADI and IDUNNA Picture

These set of illustrations was 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, I depicted some of the lesser known Gods, at least to general audiences. Skadi represents determination, passion, and embodies the female warrior (shield maiden). Quite a dangerous lady!
Idunna, on the other hand, represents the power of healing and medicine lore. She was in charge of picking up apples in the gardens of Asgard.

Hope you enjoy it and please visit the website if you can: www.norhalla.com/
