I was in desperate need of cuddles, so, living vicariously through these assholes. Fenrir is incredibly choosy as to who he lets touch him, but has a deep need for physical affection because it’s part of how he communicates. Once he and Abe are settled I’m sure there’s lots of headbutts and crawling on Abe and just pinning him awkwardly when he has other things to be doing. Fenrir is solid muscle weight and has no issues using it for captive cuddles.
"I lay with the wolves alone, it seems. I thought I was part of you…"
Painted myself a Winter Soldier hoodie. Fabric paint and a little acrylic.
There is shit wrong with this that I can’t pinpoint. Suggestions and / or redlines appreciated.
Working on a pic of Naturepunk she since reblogged the portrait thing. Got some other gift art in the works, too.
Trying to make an honest effort with Nidhogg. He’s supposed to be kinda low-slung but quick, so pulling a lot of his stance from Komodo dragons. His ribcage is made out of the arms of giants that grab things and pull them into his ‘stomach’ area where they’re torn apart. They also help him navigate around what are, literally, the roots of the world. Also thinking he can break himself apart in order to get through really tight squeezes and reshape himself on the other side.
SO DONE WITH YOU~
Done for Sidereus LARP October Event, The Lioness Reborn
Observation: Painting water is both the most irritating and the most calming thing.
You know that feel when you’re working on a pic and you’re super excited about it and want to share it really REALLY badly, but at the same time want to wait until it’s done to post?
That is me. In droves right now.
ALSO ALMOST 200 FOLLOWERS WHAT THE SHIT—I feel like I should do A Thing to commemorate the moment when it happens. Hmm. What do people normally do?
Considering some details about the Asgard bits. I make mention of the wolf slaughter by Odin’s decree, but did Tyr take place in it? His feelings on the matter? Also wondering if he should be more stringent in his approach to drawing a line between what he is and what Fenrir is from a young age. Right now he does sorta do it, but not in such a way that I think really demonstrates commitment to the idea. While it’d make more damage he’d have to repair later, it would also be obvious fuel for Fenrir’s modern-day hatred, and would make a bigger deal out of Abe taking steps to apologize and try make up for his mistakes, I.E teaching Fenrir to ride a horse and use a sword in story two. That feels like a big step to me for both of them.
Comes down to perhaps Tyr taking on more of Odin’s edicts than he realizes until the damage is done and he has to work to change that in himself. Hm.
Also Shannon/Andrea. Rewrote a scene in which Shannon, for some reason, said Andrea used to call her 'chica.' Which opens up the idea of Andrea being woc, but hesitant to do that because she’s essentially a ghost. I’d rather not the first person of color you meet in the story be a hallucination/victim. Davi does come along later and he is decidedly not white, but that’s not cool to make him the only one and make him seem token. Will fumble around with this more.
Also I really REALLY need to sit down and actually design Nidhogg. The one thing that’s stuck is thousands of human eyes filling his eye sockets and all of them moving independently. I know he’s mostly bone, but considering sticking whole parts of humanoid bodies on him instead of a smooth skeleton. Like, human arms reaching out and pulling things into his ‘stomach’ which is really a seething mass of arms could be cool.
