"Hel he cast into Niflheim, and gave to her power over nine worlds, to apportion all abodes among those that were sent to her: that is, men dead of sickness or of old age. She has great possessions there; her walls are exceeding high and her gates great. Her hall is called Sleet-Cold; her dish, Hunger; Famine is her knife; Idler, her thrall; Sloven, her maidservant; Pit of Stumbling, her threshold, by which one enters; Disease, her bed; Gleaming Bale, her bed-hangings." - "Prose Edda"

Isnt she described as half "blue" ? 
Wickard's avatar
Different translations depict her differently, for example "blue" in one translation could be "dead" in another. Besides, I tried different colours and this one seemed better to me.

I am currently editing a video on the Goddess of Hel and was wondering if I could use your picture in it? I will, of course, add your information in the description of the video and in it, and I will also provide you a link to the video as well after its up.

Thank you for the feedback!:happybounce:  I really think its my best work so far. I'm even afraid of drawing something else, because it won't be as good as this one =) So I'm on full practicing mode.
