I recently made this for the favorite book swap, and since my partner received I thought I'd share

Watercolors and ink pen.



The colors were a bit hard to capture, this photo was taken on a rather gray day before I sent.

I made the original drawing with a mechanical pencil (no tracing or anything, but with illustrations and photos to aid me for the ravens) and then inked over it. I thought I'd given myself too little room on the sides for the gradient purple I wanted, so I traced it and duplicated it on the side of the original and then painted that, as seen in this WIP



The colors are somewhere between the first and the second photo.

The back has some text, among others a verse from the Edda, which I didn't print as prettily as hoped so no photo, but in essence all reads

Hugin/Thought - Munin/Memory

Huginn ok Muninn fliga hverian dag
irmungrund yfir;
omk ek of Huginn, at hann aptr ne komit,
simk meirr um Muninn.


Hugin and Munin, fly each day
over the abyss;
I fear for Hugin, that he will not return
yet I worry more for Munin
