Waiting Until Dark by thurisaz Waiting Until Dark by thurisaz
I loved working in black&white! More to come, soon.
When I started this one I had something completely else in mind, but after a while I learnt that it went in a much darker direction than expected.
I decided to make a w/p out of it because of the size and the border and the estethic aspect of it (blahblah)

Anyway here it is, hope you like it and that it fits your screen ;)

Please fullview to show an important detail.

Reminiscent of Odhinn in a way - it also presents a few other unpleasant meanings, I'll have to see if I can translate the runes at the bottom.

Do we read the runes left-to-right, or right-to-left?
Also, I'm assuming it's Elder Futhark...?

Thanks for the comment and sorry for the late reply! It's the same figure as on the Emperor cover yeah, but the original is the work of Gustave Doré. Hope you enjoy them on Wacken! :horns:

This artwork is extremely compelling. Scary at first glimpse, but so beautiful at the same time I cannot look away! Kind of reminds me of a quote: "If you had only one chance to stare at death, would you take the chance to look away."

Åh ja det hadde vært noe, når jeg bodde oppi nord så kostet det meg alltid 1500-2000kr bare i reise dersom jeg skulle på konserter sørpå - så Emperor var et av bandene jeg aldri fikk sett dessverre. Men nå blir det vel ordning på Inferno, og kanskje kanskje Wacken også! Vi får se ;) Skal du?

Takk forresten :D
