Thor - Odin and Sleipnir

Now, (almost) a week after the successful release of "Thor" it's time to show some of the stuff I've been working on 2 years ago!
It's been a great time working with a very talented and even nicer group of people.
Hope you guys enjoyed the movie as much as I did.
As a start, here's a concept of Odin on Sleipnir, his eight legged horse.

On May 21 I will be at Gallery Nucleus for an artist panel and book signing together with my fellow artists who also worked on "Thor":

Charlie Wen
Ryan Meinerding
Vance Kovacs

See you there!…

Sleiphnir was well drawn, i must say.
I was wondering if I could use this picture on my blog, I'm making a list of mythological creatures and I would like to use this picture to illustrate Sleipnir

Fucking Odin.

Does this mean that Loki's children are all real in-universe? Because if so it's a miracle he didn't snap sooner.

That's always where Sleipnir was after Loki birthed him. He became Odin's mount. Did you not know that?

Sleipnir... What are you doing.

This is truly stunning. It almost looks realistic.

Oh geez. I looked at this after drinking and the extra legs really threw me off. x_x Awesome stuff.

I know the movie is called 'Thor' but seeing Odin in action, with Sleipnir no less, was amazing, there should have been more of that.
I love this picture, it really captures Odin in all this glory.

Am I the only one seeing Sleip's extra leg there? hahah

That awkward moment when you realize that Odin is LITERALLY riding his grandson.....

Only in Comic Lore, and it is sad. In the Norse Mythos, Loki is not among Odin's children, but is his blood-oath brother and of no blood relation beyond that oath ritual. Loki has no blood ties to the Aesir until he has two sons by the Aesir woman Sigyn. Your comment, however, was awesome. lol

lol I was just going by the information that most believe from the Thor and Avengers movie. When I read more about the mythology later, I realized that I was wrong. :D
