O you who turn the wheel

I'm hoping this one is clear. Its supposed to represent the curved surface of a Culture 'Orbital' (think of the Rings from Halo), bathed in the light from a dying star.

Here it is as if you were looking at it on its side.

Its from the ongoing major project at uni illustrating the covers for the Iain M. Banks 'Culture' novels.

Norse Mythology is RAAAD!!

So! This is a fake comic cover for my final major project I've done about 4 of these covers all can be seen HERE!! But I thought this one deserved some Coloured Vapour exposure, as I'm really happy with the colour job I've done on it!!

This is 'Nidhogg' the serpent of the Norse underworld 'Nifelheim', along with countless other serpents and snakes and creatures of darkness it chews on the roots of the world tree 'Yggdrasil'. When not having a good gnaw on the world trees roots, it basically spends its time trading insults with the great eagle giant 'Hraesvelg' through a squirrel called 'Ratatosk' the gossiping bitch!
