IF- Vanity -Half Born Hel-

I love Norse Mythology! [and any mythology to he honest]
This is Half-Born Hel, the queen of the underworld! Inspired by Joanne Harris's 
Runemarks and Runelight books, the second of which I'm reading through
at the moment. [And boy is it good!]

I want to develop a more painterly style, as an alternative to my bolder cartoony one. 
Still very much has a sketchy feel to it.. Not sure if its quite there yet.

For those who don't know, half of Hel is dead and the other half alive.
Its very fun to incorporate both features into one character and can be
quite hard to do so. 

Just finished a very busy few weeks! So its really nice to have time to
work on some more personal stuff for a change. 


  1. I think this is a great departure from your usual, quirky stuff. Really nicely done. Love the colors.

  2. Wonderful illustration and quite original! :)

  3. I agree...quite original, and nicely done!

  4. This is Great :) i love the way you split the character and made it work soooo well and the colours and everything work really well :D
