I don't care what the myths say, Loki's WAY hotter than Freyr and Baldr.

How often does Loki make use of fire anyway?

Loki actually had a black hair and a goatee in the myths ;) but nicely done.

It really depends on the myth and translator. 
... Is it bad that this depiction of Loki reminds me of Buffalo-Bill from Silence Of The Lambs?

Every ''mythological-Loki'' artwork make him ginger... I know that Thor was ginger, but I haven't  ever heard about ginger-Loki.
Do you know the answer, is dat true?

BTW I love your interpretation, he looks totally like trickster-god here. :)

It's probably due to two things. One is Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle. In it Loki is as a demigod of fire, so he's often portrayed with flaming red hair. Secondly, and probably related to why Wagner cast him as a god of fire, is the fact that Loki is often confused with Logi, a fire giant who is the very personification of fire.

Of course it's a bit understandable that people mix them up when Loki, Logi and Utgard-Loki (three different people) show up in the same story. ;)

Loki really has nothing to do with fire.
So you went for a rather flamboyant and suffisant look/interpretation here, hm? He's like, "I'm not just gonna crash your party and insult you, I also don't care what you think of my outfit, wether you like it or not!"
