Artwork Description

In Norse mythology, Hel is the ruler of Helheim, the realm of the dead.
She is the youngest child of Loki and the giantess Angrboda. I've got a soft
spot for Hel, she didn't choose to be a corpse from the waist down.

yeah you're right...I honestly don't remember why I did her leg like that.

Great picture, and I also have to say your other one is as well, the one about the Realm for those not killed by wounds or in battles, I forget the proper name. Anyways, very, very nice! May I ask a question though, you say she is corpse from the waist down, yet, it looks like her upper leg is fine...-shrug- though maybe there's something else to it, I don't know about Norse myths.

Hmmm... if she's a corpse from the waist down, how come I can see her thigh? o.O;;; just a thought... actually, the picture is gorgeous...

This picture has this nice blend of youthful beauty with sexy curves all into one well rounded beauty. All of your galery is very impressive! Keep up the wonderful artwork.

I love the softness of the background -- the mist, the darkness, even the stone seems to be not quite in focus. It seems appropriate for Helheim, a place of the imagination to most mortals. Hel herself seems so dark and mysterious. The detail for her is excellent!

Art at its best.
