The Swarthy One



The final battle between Surtr (or Surt) and Freyr in Ragnarök. In this scene, the giant Surtr is coming out of his homelands, Múspell, to fight Freyr, norse god of prosperity. This battle will end with the death of Freyr, and Surtr will go on to set the world in flames so that a new fertile world is created from the sea after Ragnarök.

Here's some additional information on Surtr and Freyr.

And a close-up of Surtr:

This is my final entry for the Coaching/mentoring competition 2015! as part of the group District Three.
The theme was for our last assignment "Villains of Mythology" and we chose the main characters of Ragnarök, the end of the world told by Norse Mythology.
It has been a lot of fun to be part of this project, and I sure learned a whole lot in the last month and a half.

Finally, as this is our last one together, just want to mention all my cohorts in this wonderful adventure and give them some shameless advertisement. You should check out their galleries, they're all very talented artists.

Our mentors: :iconkingabritschgi: :iconkimsol: :iconmarcelabolivar: and my teammates: :iconhaleydesigns: :iconlove-and-blades: :iconshadeley: :iconnitchwarmer:
