Loki and His Children by humon Loki and His Children by humon
In the front is Loki, and in the back (from left to right) are his children Jörmungandr, Hel, Fenrir and Sleipnir.
Jörmungandr is a good deal smaller than usual, and Fenrir (who is usually a giant wolf) and Sleipnir (who is usually a eight legged horse, which Loki gave birth to in the form of a mare) have obviously been humanised. Loki have two more children, who are also wolves.

Loki makes weird kids. :D

I wanted to try and draw them as normal humans who you could meet on the street. Hel, Goddess of the land of the death, is now a goth girl with her pet snake Jörmungandr, Fenrir is a tall and strong guy, and Sleipnir is a sporty runner who wants to get professional.
Loki himself is of course a trickster who cheats and lies his way though life and has managed to get himself into the higher social layers, both by being smart and by sleeping around.

I got quite unpopular when I said I had been taught Odin was bisexual, but I dare say that Loki is. And even if I’m wrong, at least I’m not the only one. I’ve noticed that quite a few gay places and products in Denmark are named after this god. :XD:

Loki is absolutely 100% pansexual. <3 I've worshiped Him for years and any one of His followers will tell you He is DTF with anyone who catches His eye. XD This is beautiful and I really love your rendition of Him.

Odin is Bisexual? Huh, learn something new everyday. Can I ask the reason people say that? Not that I care if he is, more power to him.
And of Course Loki is Bisexual, you can't be that fabulous and not be bisexual if not straight up gay.
(don't hurt me Loki....)

If you look through Humon's stuff she does eexplain that it's at least hinted at through history that he was the "top" to Loki's "bottom" and that he practiced magic normally reserved for women

I don't even know is the gods define sexuality the same way we do, so I don't care much - except that I really don't like people saying Odin and Loki are lovers, because that just seems wrong to me.
Loki is ridiculously pretty here - I love his grin. Interestingly enough, the one time I saw him in a dream his hair was red, but he was clean-shaven and had a narrow face like he does here. (He was also dressed in motley... go figure.)

I love this picture. Its so humorous! And you're right about Loki...and probably about Odin, too. In fact
I think the Original Norse mythology mentions that in "Loki's Flyting" (insult poem) where he implies that
Odin worked witchcraft, just like a woman, and Odin mentions that when Loki was living with the trolls that he'd given birth to babies, like a woman. He implies that he slept with Sif (Thor's wife). Of course, after that, Loki was a wanted man. And not in a good way.

Marvel's interpretation of Loki does. We can pretty safely assume this is so he's easily recognizable as the evil counterpart for their blond Thor. ^^; Comic books rely heavily on people being able to categorize characters easily by their appearance.

"Jörmungandr is a good deal smaller than usual..."
Considering that he's supposed to be able to encircle the globe and still swallow his tail, that is a huge understatement. lol.

Love the dark atmosphere in this picture.

No that i believe is wrong. Or at least i was being teached that in school... I have to look that up.
*looks up nordic mythology*
Okay in the swedish wikipedia it says that Hel was thrown from a mountain and got half her body hurt so she wasn't born that way. And she was half ice cold, blue and limping forward. Or in easy term half zombie. But it does not say she was beautiful either.
But wikipedia MAY be lying to me.

loki turning into a mare just to bear sleipnir was about the classiest fuck you in mythology XD and in mythology you always get weird stories about the god...they don't have a sexuality most of the time and therefore exist above and beyond it. so not exactly bisexual...
