Barbaric.  Remarkable.  I don't wanna tell you how to run your guns, but you might wanna paint this inside my garage on the wall in return for a cursed deer-skull.

Would you mind if I used this image for the submission cover of my PhD thesis regarding Odinn and ritual theory? The image encapsulates the findings of my research rather well!
I can guarantee it'd be referenced properly =)

This is quite good. I find this artwork to be very befitting of Norse Myth. Though, I feel as if this isn't quite Odin, but rather, it's him after shape-shifting into a tree.

Considering Odin was known to shape-shift, I could see this as being one of his many forms, and the little touch of having Huginn and Muninn resting atop his branches is quite clever.

Splendid job of representing The All Father. :D!

Oh wow! I also would hesitate to call him Odin, but it sure is a fantastic piece of art! He looks lile a celtic god of the underworld to me. Like Arawn or Gwynn Ap Nudd.
I wish I could paint like this...

A really different take on Odin that seems to ring very true because of the mysterious, haunted and slightly threatening atmosphere of the piece. Good to see.

It's quite nice, the way he's allmost a tree, the ravens and the whole atmosphere. Very nice and creepy :D

I'm a bit curious now.. How do you see Thor?

There are absolutely no words to describe how gorgeous this image is... The textures, the colours, and the composition all work together to create a flawless piece. Your creativity is exceedingly impressive as well; the mask and branching antlers with the ravens really set this picture off.
