Back in 2007, I did a portrait of Freya, Norse goddess for my self-published third issue of Babalon Babes. Whether or not I ever print another Babalon Babes issue remains to be seen. Regardless, I decided to do an update on Freya. Why? Why not?
I briefly studied Norse neo-paganism maybe eight years ago. Has it been that long?
Back to this illustration. It’s been a while since I added detail in my artwork. It’s something I prefer to do actually. People have advised me not to worry about details too much. Yet it’s the details that grab my attention, as with I assume is the case with other people. The devil is, after all, in the details.
