Moleskine: Fenrir by Ben-G-Geldenhuys Moleskine: Fenrir by Ben-G-Geldenhuys
Here I go again, posting more wolf things. Trying my hand at an infamous mythological beast.

I've always been fascinated by Norse mythology... in fact, I'm fascinated by practically any kind of mythology. Those ancient dope-heads had some pretty good shit in those days ;p

I've been picking at this one for a couple of months (those who attend the Saturday Open Sketch groups in Cape Town know about this), I only decided recently that I'm probably done with it.

A number of things inspired me to draw this, especially this piece of literature from *W-Lupus [link] and this deviation by ~nightmarelover

Enjoy!

Blue pencil & ballpoint pen

I think lying dormant for thousands of years can make your tongue feel like that ;p

Hehehehe

Woah, this is epic! Also, is that a dude on top of Fenrir?

Yup, it's a little viking guy. I wanted Fenrir to appear colossal, by adding a figure and some trees gives a nice indication of size.

I wanted to add some Norse runes on it as well, but that might have been a little overkill... and absolutely pointless.
