"In Norse mythology, Hel is a being who presides over a realm of the same name, where she receives a portion of the dead. She is referred to as a daughter of Loki, and is described as having been appointed by the god Odin. Her appearance is described as half-black and half-flesh colored, and as further having a gloomy, down-cast appearance."
Inspired by some of Kippery's black on beige work <3
I love your interpretation and all the fun textures in the black
At first I thought it was one person just wrapped in nice brushes of black, but then I noticed the lower portion of her body and the presence of another. I loved it even more~
I LOVE when people show their reimaginings/redesigns of mythological beings (from the simple to the divine), and yours is just lovely.
((Which I find interesting, because the way game designer Kazuma Kaneko, a fave artist of mine, redesigned Hel, it was a women with most of her top half black, and her lower body looked more like it was made of an icy white mountain, and her long straight hair was icy white blonde.))
So given that, I love how your design was not only different, but so beautifully original that it stands so on it's own.
The elegance, the gloom, the positive/negative spaces; I'd love to have this in my home. You DESERVE this DD and any praise you receive~
