Unintelligible Scribbles

 The various scribblings of Stephen McNally

Merry Christmas! (with the Allfather)

A quick facial and cloth rig test of Odin, pressed into service as my messenger for the season.

Thor facial rig test

A test of Thor's facial rig, it's a bit simpler than Loki's, but then so's Thor.

Loki facial rig test

An early facial rig test for Loki from a while back.

Loki and Fenrir

Loki and Fenrir amid the stripey trees
A detail of Loki
A detail of Fenrir
Work in progress
The original pen and ink sketch of Loki from ages ago.
This one is part of a larger project I'm working on, but also features in the Brainbelt Illustration Collective exhibition running in the Graphic Studio Gallery until tomorrow.
Loki was always my favourite of all the Norse gods, intelligent, mischievous and quick-witted.
Fenrir was one of Loki's children (One of the perils of shape-shifting amour) by the giantess AngrboĆ°a.

Freyja's tears scattered

I'm a good bit happier with this one, although it's still work in progress.
Freyja's tears was a skaldic kenning for gold

Freyja's tears

Not entirely happy with this one yet. Might have another stab at it later.

Freyr's Contraption

Freyr riding Gullinbursti, his somewhat absurd flying golden boar. It's one of the odder contraptions from the Norse myths. Only pen and ink so far, haven't had a chance to colour up.


Bit of a lazy one this week. I just find Calvin Klein ads inherently absurd.
If you don't, well, here's Fry and Laurie's take instead:

Perennial Odin

The All-father holding Gungnir, with Huginn and Muninn perched;
Yggdrasil in the distance.

A quick mock up, that'll likely never be finished. 
A detail.
