Inspired by Marisa's versions the Norse gods Loki and Thor , I made some myself


* HEL *
(”Hidden”, ”Hider”)

Goddess of the Inglorious Dead and Queen of Helheim, the Underworld for all those who did not die gloriously in battle but of sickness or of old age.

Her father was Loki, her mother the giantess Angerboda (Angrboða) and her siblings were the the giant wolf Fenris (also known as Fenrir or Fenrisulfr) and the sea serpent Jormundgand (Jörmungandr, or Midgardsormen; ”the Midgard Serpent”)

The saga Heimskringla relates that she procured herself a spouse by having the Swedish king Dyggve die a natural death.

Half her body was blue and the other half had human skin colour.

Of course, the skin need to be blue on one side and white on the other side for this sim as well. However, she looks very dark in nature indeed.

But good depiction of Hel on the Tarot card anyways.

God, please protect me from your idiot followers for they have blinded themselves with bleach.

Life is like Go. Its takes smart and amoral people to make decisions based on their strategies of living.

I like her. There is another version of her I also like: the one of Age of Mythology, but that one is very hard to make. This one is very good

Actually, the sources vary on the description of her regarding her skin.
Some say her left side had one colour and her right the other; some say the upper half of her body had one colour and the lower half the other. Some say the part that was blue actually was more like a dead or rotten part of her; like she was half corpse. When you look for illustrations of her, you will also find many different ways of imagining her.
(Was very confusing at first when I started making her!)
I felt Enayla's skintone gave her a sort of lifeless look, and as it also had a soft blue to it, i decided to give her this tone.

Btw, Kavar's skintone 'TasteOfDeath' looks really great on her.

hey i have some ideas that might be helpful to you i think
you could make her half skeleton, with the hair half white, it would be more cool in my opinion, i wish you could develop more this skin with these ideas please.
