A Once and Future King by alicexz A Once and Future King by alicexz

Available as a 13"x19" signed limited edition print from my official shop!


I remember a shadow...
A personal work of mine featuring a recent favorite character, Loki. I'm fascinated with his costume design in the films and of course enamored of Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of him (unhinged yet strangely tragic.) Painted in Adobe Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq 21UX, ref pics from Thor screencaps: superheroscreencaps.com/caps/t… with some color inspiration from the Bifrost. Thank you to Jessi for the title idea - it's not quite a reference to the novel, but as a stand-alone phrase I think it's quite fitting.

One of my absolute favorites in your gallery Heart  I love the effect of the lines of light and the colors in the armor and the background stars. When Avengers came out I went a little nuts searching art of Loki, and this is still one of my favorites I ever found.
