initially I wanted to color her up in
green-hue skin and dark black/purple robes; but decided against the
classic wicked-witch-of-the-west/ Maleficent look - and instead went
with a palette of more organic earth tones to enhance the nature side.
Here you see some color experiments for her as well :)
Odin - Ruler of Valhalla - the house of the Einherjers (slain warriors, chosen to fight in the battle of Ragnarök)
I wanted to remove the design a bit from the classic Grey Wizard/ Gandalf look... But of course he needed to keep his grey beard!
I liked the idea of giving him a bit darker and more devil-like feel. Afterall he is the ruler of a kingdom of dead warriors...
And he of course needed the two Ravens Huginn and Muninn at his side; who informs him of what goes on in the world around.
