"Hel, in Norse mythology, originally the name of the world of the dead; it later came to mean the goddess of death. Hel was one of the children of the trickster god Loki, and her kingdom was said to lie downward and northward. It was called Niflheim, or the World of Darkness, and appears to have been divided into several sections, one of which was Náströnd, the shore of corpses. There stood a castle facing north; it was filled with the venom of serpents, in which murderers, adulterers, and perjurers suffered torment, while the dragon Nidhogg sucked the blood from their bodies. Mention is made in an early poem of the nine worlds of Niflheim. It was said that those who fell in battle did not go to Hel but to the god Odin, in Valhalla, the hall of the slain." -- Encyclopaedia Britannica Online.

It's said that Hel was an oddity to behold, as one half of her was fair and beautiful and like her father... while her other half of her was misshapen and ugly like her mother.

I always have fun doodling Loki's children :iconhappytearsplz:
I'll start with what bugs me the most - her tits. Her dress is too low, and so it looks like her nipples would be popping out of her shirt. Her face seems too... how shall I word this? Her jaw is too short. Her neck is too short as well.

As for her hair, it flows quite nicely, but the way it's colored makes it painful to look at.

Hair reference A reference for anime/manga style hair.

I don't know which program you use, but here is a hair-coloring tutorial for Sai. Tada!

Her lips look like she's trying to give somebody a smooch, and I do not know if you did that on purpose or not. If she is, then good job. If not, search for references and tutorials. Practice lots.

For anatomy in general, I will be frank, you need some work. It's just into the 'acceptable' zone as it is, and needs work. As I said before, practice and reference. :)

The concept of drawing all of Loki's children is a good idea. I don't really search for stuff like that, but this is the first time I have stumbled across such a picture depicting the children. :)
What do you think?
