The Hanged Man Picture

"I know that I hung on a windy tree
nine long nights,
wounded with a spear, dedicated to Odin,
myself to myself,
on that tree of which no man knows
from where its roots run."

Another part of the 100 theme challenge I'm doing. The theme is Tarot. I decided to do the hanged man and took a look at Norse myths. This is my first attempt at digital colouring too.

Odin sought knowledge more than any man alive had ever sought it. His thirst for knowledge consumed him so much that he cast his eye into Mimir's well losing it permanently in return for a drink of the well's immense wisdom. Still in search of knowledge, Odin hanged himself from the tree of Yggdrasil from which all 9 worlds came into bloom. There he remained for 9 days until the runes of knowledge were made known to him, giving him greater knowledge than all men around him.
