Prepare yourself for Ragnarok by Rabbiata Prepare yourself for Ragnarok by Rabbiata
>>Hati...Skalli...Geri...Freki...Managarm...Garm...but the most terrifying of all was Fenrir!<<


Time: Loooong...
Tools: Copic Markers
Music: I actually watched TV :'D



This picture killed me!!! AAAHHHHHH!!!! X_X
Wolves and dogs of the Norse mythology <3

For the mountains and the fog I tried this Tutorial by =Giname out --> [link]




At the top
Hati chases the Moon across the night sky.
Skalli, his brother, chases the Sun during the day.
(BTW...Skalli is also know as Sköll or Skoll, but I prefer Skalli :))
I like Hatis design, but Skalli was horrible to design >_>

In the middle
Geri (left) and Freki (right) are the companions of the god Odin, but also the ravens Hugin and Munin are his companions.
That's why I gave the wolves two feathers, because I've a notion that they're befriended with the ravens XD'

In the middle
Managarm (left) is a dog who devours the meat of the dead ones.
I drew him with floppy ears because I think that was cute (even "cute" is not the right word here...) XD
Garm (right) is a dog with 4 eyes. He guards the entry of hell.
I drew his chest bloody since I once read somewhere that his chest bleeds... >3<

At the bottom
Fenrir/Fenris is a monstrous wolf, even the gods were afraid of him and so they bound him.
I drew him as a shadow creature...I hate to color with black, it always turns out bad >_>


On Ragnarök (End of the world) Garm will blast his chains, Hati will face the moon and Managarm will swallow it. The blood of the moon will drip and cover the sun and in the end Skalli will eat it. And also Fenrir will set himself free...
There are also different version, but this is my fav...





These characters will play a role in my comic "Scandinavian Wolves" --> [link]
They will only appear in tales...or maybe not?! ;)



Love,
Rabbi~

Managarm is a sibling of Hati and Skoll, there for not a dog, but a wolf, and Fenrir is dad to Skoll, Hati, and Managarm, and on Ragnarok hati eat the moon and mana will turn on the starts and spill there blood all over the earth.

Uh, thanks...I know the story xD
And Managarm is a dog; "Mánagarmr" means in Old Norse "Moon-Dog" or "Moon-Hound" :)
Only because he is brother to Hati and Skalli doesn't mean he is a wolf as well; I mean, Fenrir is a wolf too, but for example his brother "Jormungand" is a snake ^^
But who cares if he is a wolf or a dog now, there are different versions of him out there anyway, as well as of the story itself, but I just picked the one I like the most...;P

En la mitología nórdica Hati era un lobo que perseguía a Máni (la luna) por el cielo todas las noches. También es conocido como: Mánagarm en Escandinavia, es llamado el “perro de la Luna”, que se sacia con la carne de los que han muerto.

Fuera de ese detalle el dibujo es bueno y tu entendimiento de la mitologia nordica puede decirse que tambien.

que tradcucido seria...
...which translated would be

In Norse mythology, Hati was a wolf chasing Mani (the moon) across the sky every night. It is also known as Mánagarm in Scandinavia, is called the "dog of the Moon", which is satiated with the flesh of those who died.

Apart from that detail the design is good and your understanding of Norse mythology can say that too.

Some unimportant details, for example: something is wrong with Hatis muzzle (maybe it's too sharp?)
