Aegir Picture

I love digging through old myths and Religions and find these gods and creatures people have forgotten or at least don't get out much anymore.

I originally did this some time ago but was never happy with the end result. It was the wrong feel and it was missing some key pieces of the mythology I wanted to have.

Aegir was always an interesting deity to me. Despite the Norse pantheon being so visible he's not that often talked about.

He's the Giant King of the Seas. Bearer of the Seaweed Crown. His Giant beer kettle that Thor gave him brings foam to the seas and Beer to the Gods.

Anywho, enjoy all who find this.
