Heimdall by StinaWiik Heimdall by StinaWiik
Heimdall - the guardian of the gods who will blow the "Gjallarhorn" if danger approaches Asgard. His senses are so acute that he can hear the grass grow and he can see to the end of the world. He is the guardian of the Bifrost Bridge.

Heimdall is destined to be the last of the gods to perish at Ragnarök when he and Loki would slay one another.

Oh, and I also really love his "hang on, I'm listening" hand movement.

I am currently working on a slideshow/video and it will contain many different pictures. Now i have found a image specific this one that I found very nice and fiting to the content of my video. Now I kindly ask if i may make use of this particular picture in the aforementioned video. Itwill be published onto youtube. A If my request is denied I will not make use of the picture. I do just wish to use it in the video not print it but it will be in a non commercial way. In credits and description I will make a reference to your site and you if you wish.

Which epic is this from? I'm currently reading the Havamal right now.

Looks really great! Excellent design of the breastplate and facial features. =D

You're very lucky to have such legends, England doesn't really have anything like this. :)

Yes, I've always find the old Norse Mythology rather fascinating and it's truly a wonderful source of inspiration :aww:

:nod: And England has a very interesting history I think and I've always admired your glorious castles, beautiful country houses and small villages. And you have Shakepeare... :D

I really like the not-too-saturated colors you chose and the design of the breastplate. He has an nicely original appearance too. The head seems oddly small along with the undefined breadth of the torso but that just gives a heroic look I guess. The gjallar-horn I imagined to be quite different but looks great that way too.

Thank you! :D Yes, I to like the colors in this piece to somewhat strenghten the mood and the assaulting threat. Thanks for pointing out the head-size. I'm not seeing what you see atm, but I guess its because this has been on my work-table quite some time now. I'll get back to it with fresh eyes later on.

Happy New Year!
