Norse Painting Hel.

This is a bit different compare to what I usually do but wanted to give it a shot.
I wanted to try doing a Norse painting but in a more traditional way. So here is a creation of the goddess Hel.

Daughter of Loki and Angrboda. Siblings with the Fenris wolf and the Midgard serpent, Hel is the goddess of death.
She is often being portrait as having one side of her face/ body as fair and beautiful, while the other side is described as horrible and decay.

It was a fun project and I tried to keep it as iconic as possible.
Colors tried to make authentic and line work as interesting as well
