Thor's Death WIP by AlekinaArt Thor's Death WIP by AlekinaArt
Music: What the water gave me - Florence and the machine

Not finished yet, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but every time I sit and try to work on it… I just forget how to paint or something!

I could use some inspiration right now so… Do you have any speculation on Thor’s death?

This is an interesting and beautiful piece of artwork. I've read some comments on people saying he looks sad and heartbroken - and I'm not saying they're wrong, but I closely examined his face and what I'm getting is satisfaction.

No, Thor! It's interesting to think of Loki grieving Thor's death, he acts so much like he hates him but I can't help but wonder if Loki would grieve and feel pain if Thor were to die or was thought to be dead. What's most tragic is that Loki would finally understand to late the pain and suffering Thor went through when he thought Loki had died.

So here's what I got from your beautiful piece of art. I was drawn to Loki's face and he looks so heartbroken. So, maybe the scenario in the scene above is similar to what may happen in Thor: the Dark World, where Thor has to come to Loki for help. The bad guy is tough, and when Loki thinks about betraying his brother in the end turns around and helps him. They are alone fighting this bad guy, and they prevail but at the cost of Thor's life. Thor must be buried immediately to ensure that his soul goes forward to Valhalla (the Viking heaven from mythology), and so Loki performs the rights alone, burning the body aboard the ship to send it off in the proper way. To me, Loki's face seems to convey a rich sadness of knowing that he and his brother will never have the chance to have a strong relationship ever again. Nothing else can ever be shared between them, and all hope of recompense between them has been burned up--literally. So Loki is looking up, composing himself for the journey back to Asgard, where he will have to break the news to everyone, and carry the guilt of somehow being part of Thor's death the rest of his life. 

I know this was long, but sometimes detail helps with inspiration. Honestly, though, I feel this is great and emotion-stirring as it is. :)

whaaaooooo... what. That is amazing.
Good god your entire gallery is magnificent!
rachellelo Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
The ambiance is dark, sort of ambiguous. Is he sad? Happy? Satisfied?

Well, based on the mythology, Thor died of Jormungandr´s venom... But, when I look at your art, why not make Thor die at Loki´s hands, so then can Loki regret his deed (at least, Loki´s facial expression tells me so)? I imagine that Loki would have gone berserk if something like that happened.
Messerfly Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012
You are making me be sad with your awesome drawing :tears:
OrochiSoniko Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow! Music, color, emotions - all is perfect! This story is amazing!
I fell in love with this painting at first sight! Alekina I love you! :D
ReveChanson Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012
I love this. I'm emotionally centered, so if I'd done this Loki would be on his knees weeping all god-like.
But seriously, gorgeous.
AlekinaArt Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2012   Digital Artist
Yeah... I've been thinking of doing it all over again, with better composition and all that jazz. Problem is I'm having a hard time visualizing the concept with fresh eyes (and I really want to keep that burning boat dude) any suggestions welcomed!
KatsuyaKaiba Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012
Well, in the Marvel comics, Thor died at the end of the 'Fear Itself' cross over series, leaving behind a Child Loki by himself.
KatsuyaKaiba Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2012
Went to recheck things, and apparently Thor was brought back to life by Loki and Silver Surfer!
Xupz Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012
Hum oh my f*cking god, this is so gorgeous and intense I may have just come from looking at it ç___ç

So just like, whenever you finish it, I mzy qsdfghjklmù

Okay. First off: This picture is downright amazing! With the fire reflecting on the water and Loki's face with that expression on it...wonderful. Instant fav!
And second: Thank you for drawing this to Florence and the Machine! Thanks to you I found out about them and now I cannot fathom how I ever managed to live without them. Thank you.
AlekinaArt Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012   Digital Artist
woah I am so glad that I got you into Florence! thanks for letting me know, your kind words made my shitty day, I hope I got to stimulate your imagination a bit, happy listening!
aya-fae Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2013   Artist
Hm. You could do the boat at more of a 3/4 angle, and then you'd have more room for kneeling Loki... and maybe you could make the background color deep twilight blue, it goes very well with flame colors.
AnnaKitty Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2012
Ragnarök is never very emotional to read and I just really realized how sad the whole thing really is.

I do not know what you based this off, dear. But I know that it is amazing and I could look at it and cry my eyes out for a long, long time.
