Greece
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...
~Lord Byron

Thor Odinsson
IMPROVED VERSION

Coloured pencils and tempera watercolours on A4 paper, November 2013.

Inspired by the recent Marvel movies, I decided to draw the thundergod as I imagine him according to mythological and archaeological sources.

Thor [Old Norse: Þórr, Old English: Đunor, Old High German: Donar, Proto-Germanic: Þunraz (thunder)], the red-bearded son of Odin and Fjörgyn, the mighty god of thunder, hallowing and fertility, protector of mankind, defender of the Æsir and of Asgard. Thor wields the mountain-crushing hammer Mjölnir, made by the dwarfs Eitri and Brokkr, and he wears the iron gloves Járngreipr, which allow him to wield it, and the enchanted belt Megingjörð that doubles his strength. The swastika on his chest is the Thorshamarmerki ("mark of the hammer of Thor"), used by the Vikings on swords and runestones as a symbol of Thor’s hammer and of lightning. On the background we see Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr, the two goats that pull his chariot, and the Södermanland runestone, bearing an invocation to his name and a depiction of his hammer. The runic inscription on the top right reads “Thor”. He was also known by other names, such as Björn (Bear), Hlóriði (Loud Rider) and Vingþórr (Hallower). Described as fierce-eyed and strong, Thor was the archetype of a loyal and honourable warrior, a personification of the Viking ideal toward which every warrior aspired. One of the most prominent figures in Norse mythology, he was a major god of all branches of the Germanic peoples before their conversion to Christianity.

More random info: today is Thursday, which literally means Thor’s day. :P

"...there on they grey fields of Mithrim was fought the Second Battle in the wars of Beleriand. Dagor-nuin-Giliath it is named, the Battle-under-Stars, for the Moon had not yet risen; and it is renowned in song. The Noldor, outnumbered and taken at unawares, were yet swiftly victorious; for the light of Aman was not yet dimmed in their eyes, and they were strong and swift, and deadly in anger, and their swords were long and terrible."

~The Silmarillion, J.R.R.Tolkien. :reading:

Fingolfin and Morgoth by elven21
Fingolfin and Morgoth
Coloured pencils on A4 paper, spring 2000. Reworked in April 2015.

"Thus [Fingolfin] came alone to Angband's gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once more upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came. [...] he could not now deny the challenge before the face of his captains; for the rocks rang with the shrill music of Fingolfin's horn, and his voice came keen and clear down into the depths of Angband; and Fingolfin named Morgoth craven, and lord of slaves. Therefore Morgoth came, climbing slowly from his subterranean throne, and the rumour of his feet was like thunder underground. And he issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him like a stormcloud. But Fingolfin gleamed beneath it like a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crystals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered like ice. Then Morgoth hurled aloft Grond, the Hammer of the Underworld, and swung it down like a bolt of thunder."

~The Silmarillion, J.R.R.Tolkien
