Hel Picture

a-sketch-a-day 20130102. Hel, goddess of the underworld.

Another old-and-updated ‘post-apocalyptic mythological fantasy’ concept. The general idea/feel goes something like ‘ash, smoke, soot, dust and dry earth’; a living statue made of black marble or dark granite, blank ‘scar’ and disfigured shoulder on her left side a rough/scarred surface. Story-wise Hel is powerful but often neutral and/or passive. Lady’s got no need to rush.
