Odin (Old Norse Óðinn) is considered the chief god in Norse mythology and Norse paganism, like the Anglo-Saxon Woden it is descended from Proto-Germanic *Wōđinaz or *Wōđanaz.

His name is related to óðr, meaning “mind”, “excitation,” “fury” or “poetry,” and his role, like many of the Norse pantheon, is complex: he is a god of wisdom, war, battle and death. He is also attested as being a god of magic, poetry, prophecy, victory and the hunt.

This one was a real blast to draw Originally done as a pencil sketch on A3 cartridge paper, I then scanned it into the ol’ PC and painted it up 100% in photoshop.
