Portrait of a Prince of Asgard by Nero749 Portrait of a Prince of Asgard by Nero749
We have to fill the wait for the next movie, don't we? ;)

Quite a pretentious title I blame entirely on the painting itself. I (almost) never have a plan when I start a new painting, and this one ended up looking like it should be framed in a golden baroque frame almost bigger than the painting itself. (I'm sure you know the type of frame I mean.)

I think I'm finally getting a hang of doing simple textures that make things look real, but without entirely loosing the charm of a painted portrait.

Undoubtedly there will be more Loki in the future. :devilish:

Available from Redbubble as a print and other things I suppose you might want it on:[link]

Oh, beautiful work! :D I love how soulful his expression is, you captured the look of his eyes absolutely perfectly :D He has this mixture of sorrow, pain and determination, and you caught it spot on :love: The detail on the hair is beautiful as well, and I like the way the light brings out only half of him, but with such definition and intensity against the darkness - very cool contrast! Also, the skin texture of his face is great. Fantastic job on the portrait :D And yay for more Loki!

I love how you made his armour shine here! :aww: His skin looks great as well, very real and painting-like at the same time.
