Frigg, Queen of the Heavens

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Frigg was the sister of Niord (a Vanir) and was the wife of Odin, the King of the Aesir gods. She was the Norse goddess of marriage and nature was under her control. About her was always the smell of fresh flowers and fruits of the earth. It was said that she could see the future, but told no one, not even Odin, what she knew. In her hall, she would sit at her spinning wheel and weave the clouds for the summer sky. With Odin, she was the mother of Balder, Hoder, Hermod, Saga, Sigyn and stepmother to Thor. I envisioned Frigg a burnette with long black braids. In some descriptions, Frigg is said to always wear blue and the heron was her patron bird. This is one of my first Norse gods/goddess pieces. After I drew it, I scanned it in and did all the inking/coloring/effects in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Painter.
