I painted this yesterday (although I had been chipping away at the concept for longer) as a last minute entry for the Ghost Book. I didn’t get in, but that’s fine :3 I’m a little disappointed – but part of putting yourself out there is getting rejected sometimes! I’m still super happy I painted it. I needed this. And I love the result so much.
As usual the scan can’t compare to the original, but even with that I think I did a fairly good job with the scan.
Pencil sketch and daniel smith watercolors.
To me this looks exactly how I picture a young Hel, just after she’s been taken from her father and sent to Helheim
I love this. Beautiful piece!
I love this, the imagery is haunting and beautiful. I want to give her a hug.
