Freyr was also the god of fertility (in land), as his sister is goddess of human fertility

I see no reason to give all the details in the descriptions, when it is missing one succinct formulation.

We don't see that much art of him, even thought he was rather important back in the day...

I lovelovelove the ornaments.

I've seldom found a depiction of Freyr I've liked. I absolutely LOVE this! You've captured His noble personality well, in my opinion.

Great picture of Freyr!! I really like that how, as a Vanir, he looks a little more decadent than the Aesir you've done. I also love the inclusion of the little ship!

Amazing picture, I wish I knew more about the gods of the Norse Mythology. I too love how he is protecting the Viking sailors, and the ship in his hand. I Also love the clothing and the mustache.

Now where did you get that quote? :3 Because from what I've heard, Freyr is the chastest fertility god out there! Only two wives, no children, no official record of playing the ladies... What have you read that I haven't? :D

Love this picture, it's so... intense? That's what I'm going to go with until a better word presents itself. The look on his face is fittingly epic for an old god, and I love the attention to detail. He even looks good with the mustache, and I usually hate facial hair, so well done! Now he must twirl his mustache.... :3

У вас такие красивые рисунки на славянские и норвежские мифы....)
попробуйте проиллюстрировать ещё какую-то мифологю

хотя это звучит наверно очень навязчиво X_X

Славянская и нордическая мне наиболее близкие.) Еще в галерее есть немного по греческой.

Если накатит, то возможно будет что-то еще.
