So! The Ragged Witch is hosting a contest about Loki, so I decided to bring out my old sketch and finish inking him in. I’m hoping to add some colour, or at least good textures to this, over the course of July.
This shading is a B**** though. >.>
His tattoos are meant to signify his children. Jormungand is like a ‘belt’, although he has released his tail, signifying chaos and eventual ruin. Fenrir has the bloody foam river pouring from his mouth, and depending on your viewpoint, is either bound still (his tail,) or freed completely. And I could not draw a good skull to save my life, so the black and white crosshatch is for dear Hela, signifying death traversing all roads, left and right, and the bindings of it (the stuff between the 'arrows’).
