Painting from Livestream. I wanted to do a quickpaint of whatever came out, and it was all sort of flowing along a ‘I don’t know what this is going to be line’ until I thought about Loki and what spellwork was like back in ancient times. How he might appear as more of a force of nature and a little less like a goat.

To me he just seems like the type to be silently watching the world from the brush, barely noticeable, waiting for his chance to pluck at the strings of fate.

He is just sitting there and he is somehow intimidating...maybe it is the skull.  There is a look of what a person especially someone involved with magic would dress or something like it.

Love this in every way! The colors, lines, details...

The feeling of old Lapland shamanism in this makes me shiver ^^

Hiding in the shadows does seem suitable to his character.

that last phrase, about Loki being a silent observer, reminds me of a neat little book: Ragnarok: The End of the Gods by A. S. Byatt where Loki is shown as such :)

A fairly unique take on the Norse god - I always imagine him to appear Elvish (even though I've been a Marvel comic fan for years) rather than actually Norse in any way. I don't really know why, either... But this is fantastic; the skull coupled with furs, and even the branches add to a savage, beautiful take on him. I think you've captured the essence so well in this image, honestly.
