Wolf and Raven

Every picture has it's own story. Here's the one about my "Wolf and Raven".

My husband has an unusual hobby - historical reconstruction. He and his friends are those guys who craft metal armor, swords and axes and then go to some field to train in ancient battle skills. They've got knight tournaments sometimes and all that.

And to the "Wolf and Raven"... It's drawn to be on the front side of big battleshield. Black areas of the picture are going to be metal plates. Joining these animals in one picture is my husband's idea: he says wolf and raven were important symbols for the viking culture.

I wonder if they will sell on DT. I made two more variants of the picture, so we shall see.

Hi. I like your story.
It's about Ragnarok - Twilight of the Gods - I think. In that battle wolf Fenrir kills Odin. One of Odin's names is Hrafnagud - God of Ravens. Two of that birds are Odin's companion - Hugin (Thought) and Munin (Memory).

Good luck with your drawings!
