Naglfar, the nordic ship of the dead - the story to it is quite interesting and you can find a lot about it on the internet.

This was part of my intermediate examintation in March, 2014 and was done in Photoshop (A2).

In the norse mythology the ship is supposed to be made entirely out of finger- and toenails of the deceased. That is why there was the old custom of cutting the nails from the dead, so they could not be used to finish the ship and Ragnarok would not come that soon.

Although corpses, bones and kind of root-snake-things are displayed, I still imagine it being made of toenails. I think about it a bit like a makabre skulpture.—

The head of the ship is suposed to picture Hræsvelgr, a giant with the figure of an huge eagle. In old norse his name means “Corpse Swallower”. When he uses his wings, he creates the wind that blows over the lands.  I kind of imagined his body to be the ship (the swallowed and trapped corpses trying to free themselfs) and his wings to be the sails.

One funny fact about this picture: One of the friendly undead in this ship just always makes me think of The Cat from Kiss. I mean, this is a serious ship of the dead that is part of Ragnarök, and all I see is funny painted men with whiskers.

——>And here’s a link to the print drive page if the image linking didn’t work. Because I still don’t understand how to do anything properly on Tumblr, arggh!<——

That’s riiight!

SSSS is almost a year old and it’s book 1 time! I’m sure you all know how these webcomic crowdfunding campaigns work, but still: it’s basically a fancy, fun, month-long preorder for the book.

I’m really thankful if you guys help spreading the word! The reason I’ve been able to work on the comic full time this year is because my previous comic print drive did so well, and if enough folks get this book I should be able to keep on going and updating as frequently next year too. :3

Read “Stand Still. Stay Silent” over here.

i keep wondering if there were any jaeger pilots who, after a successful kaiju killing, just couldn’t wait a second to have a little victory dance. and thousands of confused citizens look out to sea and see a jaeger pelvic thrusting into the sunset.
