Loki Laufeyson

WOOO~ Finally! I saw the Avengers~ :D Im compleatly stunned with how perfect the whole cast over there is. :o And I think its pretty obvious who was my fav character... Ofcourse its Loki.
 I rewatched Thor and searched for pretty much every avalable interview with Tom Hiddleston. He has left an impression of himself as a sweet-hearted funny guy, so I still dont think that Loki was the bad guy of the movie... Damn those sweet malicious smiles! :s
I guess... Ive been Loki'd, huh? xD

 So yup, had this unresitable urge to draw him. c: Used photo references and mechanical pencil 0.5. :)

 I didnt notice if the shiny trim around his collar and coat was just a square shaped... thing or a zipper... So I made it a zipper. Drew the lineart with a black marker 0.2 and erased the sketch underneath.

 Tried marking the shadows on his face with a sepia toned watercolour pencil first.

 The first watercolour layer~ Mixed together yellow ochre, raw sienna, english red, glaukonite (a shade of green), quinacridone lilac and a bit of cobalt blue. Yeah, double checked all the names of the colours. :) Actually it would be enough for the skin if you have ochre and english red.

Second layer of a a bit darker skin tone. (mixed more cobalt blue).

Ochre base for the  shoulder thing and the lip tone is the same darker skin tone + madder lake red light (dark red). The eye colour is azure blue + cobalt blue.

Intense paynes grey for the hair and a bit lighter on the collar, the cape thing is green+ emerald green.

Intense yellow ochre and a combo of raw sienna+ burnt umber for the darker parts. Did the collar and hair over with tint black tone.

Oh yea... Wanted to make an artsi background, so I grabbed some inks, salt and started mixing~ Used yellow and green ink.

Obviously the bg thing was too much and started to compeate with the portrait, so tried to lighten it with white acrilic. Overdrew some black lines, added lil' details with white gel pen and its ready for scanning~


  1. I LOVE Loki too! We need to be best friends or something.
