Skadi, the Norse Goddess of the Hunt and Scandinavian Winter

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Skadi was the beautiful daughter of Thiazzi, the giant. Thiazzi was killed by the Aesir as he tried to steal back the Magic Mead. When this happened, Skadi went to Asgard and demanded compensation. She was married to Niord(the Vanir god of the sea and of ships/ship building) and Odin threw Thiazzi's eyes into the sky and they became stars. After a while, Skadi realized that she and Niord could never be happy with each other, so she left. When she was out hunting with her wolves one day, she ran into Ulle, the Aesir god of Winter, Archery and Skiers. They fell in love and were soon married. I always envisioned Skadi as a goddess with long white hair, a white fur cloak and silver armor/helmet. Like my other pieces of artwork, After I drew and scanned this in, I used a combination of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Painter.
