An old piece of work that i did a couple months back (when my photoshop wasn't on the fritz >.<)

it's a depcition of Fenrir, the wolf god on norse mythology, and the son of Loki, the norse god of mishcief (as to how they came out with a wolf i don't know). as he grew in size, Odin saw him as a threat and ordered him imprisoned. noone could capture fenrir, sothey tried trickery. they tried to bind fenrir by posing it as a contest of strength. After two attempts had failed, Odin had ordred the creation of a stronger thread, known as Gleipnir. They used gleipnir to finally subdue the beast, at the cost of Tyr's left hand. he was gagged with a sword lodged between the jaws of his mouth to asure that he would not bite at any who approached him.

On the day of Ragnarok, Fenrir would outgrow his bindings and escape and Devour Odin, and in turn be killed by one of his sons, either his jaws torn asunder or ripped to pieces

i hope you guys like this :) Comments and Constructive criticism are greatly appreciated!
