God of Thunder by WesTalbott God of Thunder by WesTalbott
I was looking through my gallery and realised that if people don't like zelda or my original stuff then there's not much interesting. So Here is my rendition of Thor. I originally planned to make him suitable for modern day, but the more I worked with the design the more I felt lead to do a more traditional one.

Let me know what you think!

Finally, a decent picture of Thor that isn't the Marvel version and/or blond.  Thank you, sir/madam for your work.

It's always nice to see classical renditions of the Friend of Man. Interestingly, this reads to me like a reverse-modernization: it reminds me of Marvel-Thor's classic costume, rendered in a more traditional look. And he's got reddish hair, so points for authenticity!

I like how massive you made his hammer look; ever since I read a bit that mentioned that his hammer is so large than only a giant (or Thor) can lift it without it being cumbersome, I get twitchy when I see it shown being smaller than that.

Also, yay! HE HAS BEARD. (It's not really Thor without a big badass beard.)

I like the design, glad you chose to draw him with dark hair, it gives him a more menacing look!

very sweet man! the lack of the traditional viking helmet that he's always seen in seems to give this more of a serious tone imo.

The details are all great: the cloak pin, the belt buckle, and Thor's weird chest disks (good use of Viking design)! The flapping of the "crotch-cloth" (for lack of a better term) is suprisingly the most effective part of the whole work, which alone lends tremendous three-dimensionality to the totality of the piece. Good on ya!

first, meh!at the left hand ,its just bad man, i mean the lfet one is much better, not becouse of teh gear on it and all by yes the finger position the right hand with the fist lined like that make all the arm looks lame, but i liked a loot the design in the upper armor, but i don't think you worked a lot in the legs ...or in the axe :\

Thor is one of my favorite charas in Marvel Universe. I think U did great redesign of him and there is great touch of Mythology in his outfit...
