Ragnarok 2006 cast image

By Reinder
We haven't seen much of Ragnarok in recent Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan storylines. She will have some part to play in Feral, and since the story is set more than a year after The Rite of Serfdom, I've taken some time to redesign her. She will have longer hair again and have foregone the Gnomian Punk Rocker look for something that, while still unusual, looks a little more like a historical outfit. This brownish-purplish little number is based on [link] by the marvelous ~BraveAnimal.

I may change the colour yet to fit the comic's overall colour palette, but for now I've tried to follow the colour scheme of the original. The straps under Ragna's breasts probably don't offer the best possible support, but at least they offer some, which is more than I can say for most medieval dresses that I've investigated so far (queue replies from costume makers to the effect that they did have bra-like undergarments in the 11th Century and that I should have looked at this or that website :) )

Ragna has also gained a little weight, making her look more amazonly and Nordic. I'm a bit fed up with the narrow-shouldered, thin-armed look that my female characters default to. Kel looks like that, but there's no reason why any of the others should have to.

Thanks! I hope to be able to get back to the Rogues soon. Actually, I'm spending two hours a day on the comic, but it all goes to fixing old work.

Darn I look slim! Thanks hahah!
I am so honored by this.. wauw. The dress is a plain brown irl, but I like the hue the photo's gave and so I have to like you coloring as well. The detailing is amazing!!

Funnily enough, my parents would have named me Ragnar if I had been born a boy.. fun you choose a similar name for this character.

I'm glad you like it. This drawing is a big step ahead for my ability to draw this character (even though I've been drawing her for fifteen years!) and the dress does look marvelous on her. Makes me want to increase her involvement in the next story she's in...

That turned out nicely, Rein.

i love the character design, especially the details in the belt.

Oh yeah... those belts were a lot of work but it paid off. Having such a great model helped.

I quite like the medieval style of carrying things around by hanging them on your belt. I do wonder if this didn't lead to some people wearing five or six belts for all the stuff they needed to have handy....
