    Here is Odin. Or Óðinn as he is called in the old Norse language which is almost extinct but largely survived in my native language, Icelandic. :D
    He is seen with his two ravens Huginn and Muninn.
    In almost every depiction I have seen of Odin he is portrayed as a pretty frail looking old man, and I decided to deviate from that quite a bit as you can see.

    Awesome. I, personally, have always envisioned Odin as being ripped and slightly overweight. Like the build you drew right there.

    Thanks, yeah I really felt like he should be the kind of guy that looked like he gained his muscles from physical labour, not the kind you do in a gym to get ripped but more the kind you get from power lifting. And so a wide and big build was in order to make that more obvious and through the clothes to make him look powerful, even though he is kinda past his prime.

    PS. I was gonna draw his wolves behind him but they didnt turn out too good so I decided to just skip it.

    you focus too much on the characters and not enough on the figures themselves. copying from comic books and cartoons have brought you this far, but they are not academic studies. nude figures will help you to improve vastly. i'm talking night and day difference. your figures are very flat -- with no volume or depth. even a flat drawing after studying anatomy will still imply a certain depth.

    that's the best advice i have for anyone who draws superhero pin-ups.

    Yeah. I did kind of notice Anansi's lack of blackness.

    Hello everyone. I have barely drawn a thing over these last two weeks, I had exams at school and then I went straight to a new job but here are a few little drawings of mine.
    This one I did the other night while watching Escape from L.A.

    And here is the first sketch of my June Fan Art Contest entry.

    Still wrong there buddy. Not everyone in Africa is black (ie Egyptians).

    Anansi... is black.


    Still a cool drawing. Can't wait to see that Superman pic finished.

    Well, spideyboy said he should be african-american (which means american but of african decent, not black in general) so I corrected him by saying he should be african only. You're talking about skin color. It's different.

    I agree, I was just pointing out that describing a black person's race as African is too broad because it includes people other than black people.

    The problem is there isn't really words that literally mean what people associate them with. Curse you connotations!
