Fenris at Ragnarok by Uberlegen31 Fenris at Ragnarok by Uberlegen31
I like nordic myth so I decided to draw the wolf Fenris who according to legend is destined to kill Odin come Ragnarok, the end of the world in Nordic lore. A magic ribbon is used to bind him until he finally breaks it and takes his revenge on the gods in the final battle. Done in photoshop.

You know if they didn't tie him up he probably would have been a guardian of Valhalla, dispite being the son of Loki.

I like that you draw his fettir as a ribbon. The only one ive seen i think... Everyone else seems to do a chain, which isn't quite right.

the chain always enphatize the idea of an unbreackable prison...but I agree with you.

Oh i get the symbolism of the chain, no question. It's just one of those things most forget.

Kinda like loki having scars on his lips. I've only seen that in a few images.

Course the same could be said of Thor having a robust red beard :D

very nice replication of Fenris.
Although the legend I heard was that they made his binding from nothing as in the void.

Actually, both spellings are correct.

In any case, this is a very nice piece. I really like how you included the ribbon, and the look on his face is frightening (in a good way)!
