A Once and Future King

I remember a shadow...

A personal work of mine featuring a recent favorite character, Loki. I'm fascinated with his costume design in the films and of course enamored of Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of him (unhinged yet strangely tragic.) Painted in Adobe Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq 21UX, ref pics from Thor screencaps:… with some color inspiration from the Bifrost. Thank you to Jessi for the title idea - it's not quite a reference to the novel, but I like the phrase.

Great job, on this sneaky, little devil. The details on the clothes are great, the lighting and shading are incredibly done and the background is very well done.

I love Loki.  I'm surprised you haven't done one of Hela yet... they did an amazing job with her in Thor: Ragnorok.

One of my absolute favorites in your gallery Heart  I love the effect of the lines of light and the colors in the armor and the background stars. When Avengers came out I went a little nuts searching art of Loki, and this is still one of my favorites I ever found.

I really like the colours you used, the gold looks so warm. I also like the title, I think it's very fitting for Loki.
