TC:TF colored



The First of the Search from The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Been drawing this stuff too much lately.

Definitely keeping the Norse/Viking influences in the designs concerning her culture, since the author clearly has drawn his inspiration from the Jötnar/Hrímthursar; they even have names like "Rime" (Hrím) and "Frost-" in the later volumes. TF strongly reminds me of Jötnar like Járnsaxa ('Iron-Seax').

Her sword is inspired by a Viking-age blade found in a Finnish warrior woman's grave. It belongs to one of the most beautiful prehistoric swords found in Finland.

I always pictured the First as a blond, but it's been some time since I read the books and really it's neither here nor there as this is fantastic.
