CGHub Challenge Thumbs: Norse Mythology

It's been a bit since I posted anything on here. Over ate CGHub there is a challenge to create an illustration based on Norse Mythology, which I am geared and ready to do. Listening to Carl Orff's Carmina Burana (O Fortuna) and doing some sketches.

Originally I had two ideas in mind, one of Odin and is Huginn and Muninn and another of Freyja. So here are the two sketches....



While I like them both I am leaning towards bringing up my Odin piece because I find it more interesting and also because I have yet to add more men into my portfolio work. I have aims to make the ravens into a Valkyrie type instead of staying with the birds. Some inspirations for this challenge in my research has been Rackham, Waterhouse, and Abbey, along with a look through some Byzantine art. As for the shaping  of the image there is still a lot of work to be done. I am a bit worried about the lighting but am also looking forward to seeing how I am able to develop this piece. 

So wish me luck...going back at it....
