Inktober 2021 Day #5: Raven. Yet another one that took longer than expected. Bonus points if you know the names of the ravens (hint: they’re from Norse mythology). I knew I had to reference Norse culture with this one. One of my ideas was having the ravens in a dead tree, with PMD similarly perched, having just put the plungers on their heads. I usually do some quick google image searching of the prompts to find a spark of inspiration, and this time I found a bust of Odin in a similar pose with similar armor, so that’s the direction I went in. The statue has some nice Celtic knotwork on it (which could have applied the the previous prompt), but I couldn’t squeeze that level of detail in at this size. I could have worked this one a bit more, creating more separation between some elements (like the raven on his tail, it’s body kind of gets lost and merges with the helmet), but it’s very late and my hand cramped up.
