Jormungand by Trishkell Jormungand by Trishkell
It is one of three children of Loki, it is the gigantic, so gigantic snake that he surrounds the world...

one correction, though it looks better like this so i wouldn't change it, but according to Norse mythology, since he was both a serpent and the son of the fire god, his coloring was different than expected. His belly was a bright yellow, his sides the color gave way to a deep burning orange threaded through with line of black that grew denser and closer until they formed a broad, inky stripe on his back. his eyes were points of "red fire" and his fangs were the color of polished ebony.

The only problem with that coloring is that it loses the dark, foreboding effect, so i wouldn't change anything.

Great Work!

The intensity of this is mind boggling...what a fantastic piece! I adore the way you made the water look like it is sloshing about, I can almost see him undulating under the waves and tossing that ship about, wonderful.

Really nice drawing, I like mythology, as I see you like to draw it, you know the legend of the jormugandr is in three different mythologies: norse, mexican, and spanish...The water, boat and expression on the beast are really realistic, very well illustrated...

Love the tiny boat! The textures are so lovely. This is why I like traditional art so much.

The different interpretations of Jormungand are really interesting to me. Check out Thistil Mistil Kistil for a completely different version of the character. I think it's really interesting to contrast and compare between a realistic, scary-looking version of the snake versus a cartoony, friendly-looking one. :)

Jormungand is so cool. I like the way you did him here, but isn't he supposed to be eating his own tail or the world will end?

yes you're right! But i chose to show the moment when jormungand comes out of the water and stops bitting itself the tail to join the final battle

Stunning! I really like how you can see the paper texture.
Traditional mediums give such a different life than a digital work can achieve.

Being a big fan of Norse Mythology and using it in my bio for my character, I love that you have a piece depicting Jormungand.

Really great job with the water and you managed to depict the size very nicely. Well done all around!
