Draugen

Share

So the draugen is this water giant from scandinavian folklore. And i love folklore.

Edit: Yay, frontpage! In celebration, I'm gonna publish this B-movie poster that I accidentally made this into:

Oh screw that!

That girl's going to wonder why her friend is screaming for their life right before she's crushed by a giant hand.

It's an effective illustration if it can get me to react like that.

min3ralWater responds:

Yup, a pretty terrifying thought. Hope you didn't like swimming that much.

Thank's for the review!

great piece. really like the fog effect, even in the distant sky. alot of good. but is it wierd that i find her face more creepy than the thing going for her?

min3ralWater responds:

Fog just looks so cool in general. I like to add it even when it isn't necessary.
And I actually find her face creepier too, or at least more mysterious.

Thanks for the review!

Am I doing it right?

comeeepliiiing.

min3ralWater responds:

Don't know what that means, but thanks for 5 stars!

I also love folklore! Its a great piece, the way the light highlights the droplets of the water is a very nice touch. Also, is Draugen spelled correctly? All I find in my search is Draugr, the again walker.

min3ralWater responds:

So it appears that Draugr is Old Norse and Draug is Norwegian.

Draug is an indefinite suffix (eng: a Draug). Scandinavian languages have a suffix definite article, which you get by attaching -en or -et to the end of the word, so the definite suffix for Draug would be Draugen (eng: the Draug).

Thanks for the review! And yeah, folklore is the coolest shit.
