Month for Loki, Day 12: I love Your face…

by beanalreasa

Per tradition, today’s post features some of my favorite artwork/images of Loki.

Enjoy!

Loki lineart by JarfieArt, as featured on zir tumblr 

I love the stitches on His mouth, and those boots, especially ❤

 

‘Loki’ by Loren DeSore

 

Dat Jotunn by lebzpel 

That smirk and those yellow eyes!

What I like most about Lebzpel’s style of depicting Loki is how zie consistently combines the opposing and liminal aspects of Him – in zir sketches, Loki somehow appears youthful and yet ancient, muscular and yet somehow fragile, infinitely amused and yet also world-weary.

I believe Lebzpel skillfully captures His essence perfectly in many ways.

 

And speaking of capturing aspects, here’s one of my newest favorites:

 

Though this artwork features Odin (as I imagine that is Loki, underneath the grinning mask), it is titled

You, they said, did sorcery on Samsey…’ by lisiakita on DeviantArt.

The artist captions the artwork with this text, translated from the Lokasenna, verse 24-5:

“Loki said:
But you, they said, did sorcery
on Samsey,
and tapped on a tub-lid like the
shamanesses.
In wizard’s guise
you went over the world of men –
and that I thought an unmanly nature.

Frigg said:
“The fates you two met with
you never must
speak about to men –
what you two Aesir acted out in the old days –
one should keep always away from
one’s past.”

Well then…
