Awesome rendition of my favorite figure in Norse mythology. Love the effeminate look, plays well into Loki's shapeshifting, genderqueer persona, as well as the other details related to his myths (his 2 sons, the fire of which he is a patron deity, the Yggdrasil he travels etc) And ofc as always love the technical aspects of this painting: grrat layered composition, beautiful color scheme and well rendered textures.

Really great work, thank you for choosing this character and sharing it with us, makes me very happy to see one of my favorite mythological characters ever interpreted so unique by an artist, while at the same time also honoring original characteristics of Loki.

thank you! I'm happy that you've seen all this details! There's also not really random runes, I tried to find ancient curses and translate them into runes. This is a reference to the episode where Loki swore with the gods. It's like he was a battle rapper of myths :D (Big Grin)

I was thinking the runes aren't random, but I didn't have time to translate them. So awesome to know they're related to one of Loki's most awesome, imho, gods' hipocrisy shaming game ever :giggle: Thanks so much for explaining this to me. And indeed, the most awesome battle rapper ever, besides all the other aspects he was great at (magic, shapeshifting, inteligence, knowledge, cunningmess and so on)

Awesome Loki!  Deadly, yet with a stark beauty, and then there's all the rest: the flames, the runes, the wolf, the universe in the World Tree....  Excellent work!

You're entirely welcome!  (And I only belatedly noticed the fish.  Again, so nice with all the subtle symbolism!)
