College Work: Odin Picture

For my final character project this year, I designed Odin from Norse Mythology. I wanted to do more characters from the myths but there wasn’t enough time. Eventually I plan to pick up the concepts again (since I’ve been dying to re-do my old interpretations) and my absolute adoration of Norse Myths is still burning strong.

I probably spent way too long researching and designing the Eagle helmet Odin is sometimes described wearing, considering it didn’t make it to the final design, and even delved into Bronze age archaeological finds to try and avoid the typical winged/horned viking helmets. So instead I delved into culture 2000 years before the Viking age whelp
