Cool stuff. I'm reading up on Norse literature for one of my stories--Prose Edda and the Volsung Saga--so I like it. I want to see more. :shock: :D

Your illustrations looks good as fantasyillustrations. But beeing illustrations from the Norse literature I think that they are missing the humor. The stories has always been looked upon both with the drama they have, but also with the humor. In Norway (and I think that count for all of Scandinavia) there is as much very dark humor to them as the drama. Here is one (he is from Denmark, and makes them with ALOT of humor. And I think that one of the best in the feeld.) that has made Norse mythology into a comic, and it´s going to be all the stories and working on album 14. His name is Peder Madsen, (website: http://www.petermadsen.info/ ) take a look at his work. I do hope that I don´t bring you down by this but that it more can be some inspiration. ;)
