Month for Loki, Day 8: I love Your face.
In what has become sort of a tradition for this blog during the month of July, today’s post will be a Loki artwork post.
First up, is one of my newest favorites – a digital piece subtitled
The Fire God says Hello…
(AKA Loke-Spam #2) by Striped Smoker on DeviantArt.
Another digital piece…
Loki, as Beast, by QuickReaver on DA.
I love that feral glint in His eye, the tousled mess of His hair…and of course, that jaunty tilt of His top-hat.
I am struck by something primal and dangerous in His facial expression
…and whatever that is, this image reminds me of Malcolm MacDowell from ‘A Clockwork Orange.’
Unfortunately as much as I really *lovelovelove* this image – and it is referred to all over the web as being ‘Norse Loki’ – I have absolutely no artist information/credit for this artwork.
When Googling this image, one is liable to come up with dozens of Pinterest hits and a few links back to a missing/deleted page on tumblr (media.24.tumblr), but other than that – there seems to be nothing more.
I’m sharing it in hopes that someone – anyone — has any leads for this artwork.
Please let me know – I’d love to give credit where credit is due! Thanks!
And finally, in the realm of Pop Culture Paganism…
Here is Sergey Razumovsky.
So I went searching for more of this artist through Google, and I kept finding some really interesting stuff…in Russian.
Translated, it turns out that this is fan art associated with Bubble Comics’ Major Grom/Major Thunder the Citizen comics.
This character is named Sergey Razumovsky. He is an orphan, a brilliant hacker, an Entrepreneur of social networking, a philanthropist, and a rather engaging and flirtatious fellow.
He is quite possibly Bubble Comic’s most popular character, according to http://bubblecomicsarehere.tumblr.com/
Sergey is similar to Loki in many ways, both in looks and attitude…and there are some subtle yet unmistakable similarities with the lore between Odin and Loki in a few story arcs of the comic as well. O.o
I don’t know how much of that is intentional on the part of the
original artist (who seems to be named Phobs.)
(The first image is fan art; the second is an original from the Major Thunder the Citizen story arc, by ‘Phobs‘)
Hail Loki, I love Your face ❤
