Frigg by Lhox Frigg by Lhox
Frigg, the Seer.

This wise Goddess is the mother earth figure of Norse Mythology. She is Goddess of Nature, and one of the most powerful Goddesses of the Asatro.
Frigg can see the future, and knows everything that is going to happen- and yet she tells nothing of it.

She is described as being mysterious, accepting and magical.

Frigg is my favourite Nordic Goddess. The painting is done in gouache.

Fantastic drawing! The colours are so brilliant and I love how smoothly you managed the transition to colour without the black making it muddy, so pretty XD

Awesome ^^thanks. My mom was a hufge fan of norse gods and she wanted me to have a one of a kind name, she had to sign some papers to do it though, turns out I'm the first girl in my country to be named Frigg =D I'm kinda proud of that

Wonderful, both design and execution. I saw the "pregnancy" in it too and also find it fitting :-).

This is lovely!

The curve of her oversleeve reminds me of a pregnant belly; I don't know whether you intended the symbolism or not, but I like the result.

I didn't intend it to look like she's pregnant, but several people have commented on it and I can definitely see it too. Which I kind of like. People start seeing things in your artwork that you yourself haven't noticed!

beautiful i love the circular fluid movement and good use of depth and perspective on the foot paths .you did a great job on her face . and best of all it is a figure from actual myth / legend not an illustration from a story some one is currently working on . not that many of them are bad it just peeves me that there work is in a club for Myth /legends. sorry for the rant .

I love how the left sleeve gives the impression of a pregnant belly.

I never thought of that, but you're right! That's quite funny, because women used to pray to Frigg asking for help with child birth.
Thanks for commenting!

I was about to make the same comment, about her sleeve making it seem like she's pregnant. I think this is quite fitting for this character.
