Skoll Chasing the Sun by Thunderflight
Skoll Chasing the Sun
In Norse mythology, Sköll ("treachery") is a warg that chases thehorses Arvakr and Alsviðr, who drag the chariot which cuntains the Sun through the sky every day, trying to devour the sun. Sköll has a brother, Hati, who chases the Moon. At Ragnarök, the end of the world, both Sköll and Hati will succeed in their quests. [x]


This was a conceptual experiment with printmaking for my final printmaking project! I wanted to portray a popular Nordic myth by having Sköll jump OUT towards the viewer, rather than having him be placed in a 2D space with the viewer watching from a distance. I thought it'd be cool to engage the viewer as Sól, the Sun personified in germanic legends, and feel what she must feel as she is forever chased by Sköll.

In retrospect, I think adding more specifically Nordic designs around the wolf would've helped unify it to its concept. It was hard to emphasize markings or the like with black and white, and I was too afraid of breaking the hyper realism with written words or Nordic designs around the wolf.

For all intents and purposes, this looks just like a wolf jumping towards the viewer, but oh well. I had a good concept. Perhaps I can work on improving this piece in the future.

Thanks for the support :+fav:
______________________________________________________


This piece was done as a dry point etching on BFK paper. The process was simple: I merged two wolf photographs that were perfect for my concept using Photoshop CS5. After printing it on regular printer paper, I taped it to the back of a thin plexi plate and etched over the edited photo with an etching needle. When the etching was done, I spread carbon black ink over the plexi plate and thinned it out using cardboard. After wiping the ink off of the plate gently with cheesecloth until only the ink that caught in the etching remained, I printed it through the press onto my paper.

This was a very fun process for me considering I'm much more confident in my drawing skills and it was a very technical piece. I'm hoping to do more dry point prints in the future.

A perspective study on scratch board. My professor suggested we spend two or three minutes on his face from one angle and then he'd switch before I had time to finish. It turned out pretty interesting!

Hello there! I go by Thunder on dA. I chose this particular alias because June, my birth month, is known as the beginning of hurricane season where I live. Storms have always fascinated me. Storm watching is a favorite hobby of mine, if you could call it that.

I'm passionate about what I do. I know that I truly want to be an artist. Art is everything I am. And I want to improve in any way I can.

Thank you for supporting me. Feedback and critiques are greatly appreciated!
