Fenrir by Kitsune-Prophet Fenrir by Kitsune-Prophet
I finally did it! I've been trying for years and years to draw this furry bastard. Finally did it!! XD

Maybe I'll get a tshirt outta this pic.

Woot! Norse mythology completely NEUTERS Greek and Egyptian mythology!! XD

Anyway, Fenrir - the giant wolf, son of Loki and Augerboda. Supposedly father of Hati and Sköll.

This is where he is bound by Gleipnir, a fetter made of strange things like the spittle of a bird, and the roots of a mountain. Stuff like that. Fenrir ate Tyr's hand. =D

Interpretation of Fenrir (c) ME.

Poor Fenrir!  *pets him, cautiously*  The Aesir were pretty terrible to him, just because he was big and hungry....

Actually, it could look like both a dog and a cat at the same time. For me actually.

Funny thing about Fenrir is he probably wouldn't have tried to kill Odin and eaten Tyr's hand if they would have just left him alone and not bind him because of what MIGHT happen.

Don't forget the beard of a woman - all of which, these things did not exist.

Modern paraphrasing of how Fenrir got trapped:

Fenrir: "Is that rope?"

Odin: "... ... ...sure."

Fenrir: "...let's try it."

Two minutes later...

Fenrir: *Sighs* "Dammit..."

Gleipner is made from the noise made by the footfall of a cat, the roots of stones, the beards of women, the sensibilities of bears, the breath of fishes and the spittle of birds. I love Fenrir and your picture. But I also love Greek and Egyptian mythology so............SHUTUP!

all the info seems correct, and the drawing is geniously crafted.
one of the things they made the ropes to bind Fenris was woman's beards.

No offense, this is a GREAT picture but Fenrir has a sword in his mouth when he is bound i love the picture though, but the Fenrir myth is my favorite myth in all mythology but it seems the sword part just slips away from most people ^.^;; his drool made a river though (which is kinda nasty)

Amazing, I've always liked this guy and had him featured in some of my stories (which are all still in my head) as one of the main characters. Because of all myths he is the only wolf myth creature I can think of, and is one of the coolist wolfs ever!

Great job coloring this pic, you really did justice to Fenrir-sama. *bows to your l33t drawing skills* Your style of drawing make's it look realistic as well, Awesome job

Ahhhhh yes, Fenrir. Quite a piece of work and one of my favorite mythological entities. The muzzle seems a bit short (as he was supposed to bridge the gap between sea and sky when his jaws opened) but this is way more than I'm capable of. Nicely done!

AAAAH. IT'S SO OLD. I remember being PROUD of this thing...!!

I need to redraw it...

But it's not bad, I'd say. He's still somewhat... fluffy.

I didn't mean anything insulting, It's a whole lot better than I can do. It just seemed to me that he had a slightly (again, no offense) shrunken head. And I would agree he is a tad......erm.......fluffy, I guess, but he still looks bad-ass at the same time. I like this piece, but a revision would most likely be equally cool. Go for it.
