Ragnarok I by Exileden Ragnarok I by Exileden
Collaboration with :iconkhaosdog: - Wolves of Ragnarok.

Ragnarok -"Doom of the Gods"- means the end of the cosmos in Norse mythology.

There are three wolves. One is Skoll, who is chasing the Sun and Hati- is chasing the Moon from beginning of the world. And cruel one, who was banished by the Gods into depths of earth- Fenrir.

The wolf Skoll will finally devour the sun, and his brother Hati will eat the moon, plunging the earth into eternal darkness. The stars will vanish from the sky. The cock Fjalar will crow to the giants and the golden cock Gullinkambi will crow to the gods. A third cock will raise the dead.

The earth will shudder with earthquakes, and every bond and fetter will burst, unleashing the terrible wolf Fenrir from darkness....

I did concept of Ragnarok I- Wolves of Ragnarok and lineart and *khaosdog beautifuly colored this.

LINEART: - A3 smooth bristol, by jumbo grip pencil.
COLORING: - A3 high quality watercolor paper, watercolors, acrylics, pearlescents and colored pencils (polychromos).
Picture is (c) by me and khaosdog

Alternate Ragnarok I version (anthro version):

Ragnarok II

It reminds me of when Tor and Fenris sealed Wolfbane in the earth until they have need of him. I love it!

This piece is amazing. Is there any chance of it being available as a print or as a collaboration is that not possible?

This is phenomenal (as are many of your other works). I have an avid interest in Norse Mythology and your works do a great job of capturing the essence of these legends in a visually appealing way. Very creatively inspiring.

You know, this is the only version of the Apocalypse I have (been trying to) memorized. All the others I have yet to read or I just don't care.

Epic piece! Simply gorgeous. I didn't actually know that there were three wolves in Norse mythology.

This is absolutely amazing! Would I be allowed to use this as a book cover?! This is exactly what I envision!
HyperPowerfu64 Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
If I may ask, what's the book about?

No need to go into too much detail, I'm just curious.
Aviatrix427 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2016
A sort of Norse/werewolf adaptation of Beauty and the Beast...except my werewolves are of the Underwolf variety; not Twilight ;)

I've seen a few people who have gotten this image tattooed. It's one of my favorite peices and it's upsetting some people just take it without permission. But hey, they gotta live with YOUR art :3 just letting you know. Some artists get very angry when someone steals their work for a tattoo

Wow! The detail in this is just beautiful! You did a very well done job on this! :D

There’s A Battle Of Two Wolves Inside Us All

An old Cherokee told his grandson: 

“My son, there’s a battle between two wolves inside us all. 

One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment,

 inferiority, lies and ego. 

The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope,

 humility, kindness and truth.” 

The boy thought about it and asked:

 “Grandfather, which wolf wins?”.

The old man quietly replied:

“The one you feed.”
