Sleep Well, Daddy Dearest... by Lauffeuer Sleep Well, Daddy Dearest... by Lauffeuer
This... nice, young, halfdead woman is Hel from Norse Mythology, daughter of Loki, Queen of the unglorious dead. :D
Isn't she just cute?
Well.
I did this thing because a good friend of mine, ~Weltenhund, asked me to do a little pencil-scrap of her. And well. Here it is.

I also did this... this thing because of my (and my friends) uber-fandom of Runemarks. I'm currently annoying all nine worlds with that book. :D
Just to explain, the cracked watch she holds in her hand is the Death Watch in Runemarks. She promised her Father, Loki, one hour in the Black Fortess but betrayed him and stole 13 seconds from him - Loki died because of that.
Explains the watch AND the title. :D :D :D
YAY!

Hel... Yeah, I know her. *nods* There have been so many different descriptions of her, but all of them say she's half dead. Love your rendition.

Woah. That's just amazing, and there's so much detail , especially on her dress. There's no way I'd be able to do anything near as amazing as this (mainly because I don't have the patience.)

I'm very much interested in Hel, so methinks I should get my hands on these books. :shifty: She is so adorably creepy, and I LOVE her dress.

He only died temporarily, though...
This drawing is awesome. I am completely unable to draw fancy Victorian clothes.

Oh man, what a lovely Hel. I've always liked the character, and wanted to draw her but never gotten around to it. I love how you portray the undead half of her, and how contemplative she looks. Also, that's some REALLY good pencil shading.

I think the proportions still need some work, though...
I really like Hel, too.
Unfortunately she's barely mentioned in the myth...

Ha ha. That's funny. Daddy Dearest. Lol.

I didn't like Hel much after she killed him, I have to say. Seriously, all that for one guy? Alive? She knows that Balder doesn't like her, but she still tries to make him hers. If she likes him, then she'll want to make him happy, right? So, she should try and force them to be together.

Oh well, but in the end she gave in, didn't she? XD'
And I have to say that I felt really sorry for her... ._.
I mean. Nobody's BORN bad, eh? XD
And as we know Loki he sure did something to anger her. XP

But we're not sure what, right? I don't recall ever being told explicitly what it was that Loki did to Hel. I suppose he wasn't a great parent, which he said, but... I think it may just be everything. Like, the way he kept baiting her while they were there.

Also, isn't she mad at the entire group of AEsir for "trapping" her in Death in the first place? He's part of the AEsir.
