Death of a Viking by EjLizardbreath Death of a Viking by EjLizardbreath
Just a wee personal piece. It was a burning image that needed to come out of my cranium and into existence. 

A viking lies dying as a raven looks at his soon-to-be-corpse hungrily from the tree above. The sword that slayed the man lies broken by his side, his own sword standing, as a kind of grave marker, from where he dragged himself away from the fray. Odin's presence is here, his time will soon come to an end.

I am so proud of that raven. XD

And people wonder why I like mists and fog so much!  You want drama, romance, and mystical .... you add mists!  You know, totally know, I love Odin coming out of the fog like he is partially made of mist!

Thanks. :) I was working on just that for the better part of an hour, trying to figure out how to make Him look like He was something from another plane(because, well, He is.)

There is mist of course, it is the sign of the spirit world!  Very epic indeed!  Dramatic with the shadows, the shape of the tree and the mists.  I love the spectral form of Odin!

Thank you! And thank you for recognizing the little hints and symbols I threw in. :) Most people wouldn't get those.
