Gloriously Burdened by DarthxErik Gloriously Burdened by DarthxErik
GUYS. :iconiloveitplz: I LOVE LOKI.

And I had SO much fun doing this. Only took me about 4-5 hours. And the background is NOT digitally edited, it was digitally painted.

Don't know if those scratch/bruises are accurate since he definitely has them at the end of the film but not so much in the first scene, and I took the background/lighting inspiration from the first scene. IDK I guess I kind of wanted to give him some nice detail. besides the very thought of those aliens in that flashback torturing him in any way gives me all sorts of feelings

So yes, please join me and Loki's army on my tumblr! [link]

Again I just had a ton of fun with the detail in this. Rarely do I try to be as legit as this with costume detail. This was definitely fun.

And in case you'd like to hear my thoughts on Loki, here they are:
"Basically I think Tom Hiddleston as an actor is superb, classy, gorgeous and very passionate about his work and characters… and that inspires me. And I DO have a crush on him. It’s his whole FACE.

Secondly, LOKI as a character although villainous, crazy and disastrously misguided, is somewhat redeemable and symbolic of a prodigal son. You’ve all heard the story, but he is, to me, the epitome of a “lost soul” who should not be scorned or discounted… rather, understood, made human, and pitied in the most loving sense of the word. Look around… there are so many LOKIS around us that we may not see because in their souls they are crying out desperately as Loki is… fatherless, abandoned, hopeless, arrogant, living for lies and out of jealousy… desiring control and significance… all this is human nature. And only unconditional, perfect love can cure these lies.

Basically I like to metaphorically wrap up my worldview about God, people and how we should try to pick up our fallen brothers in the character and story of Loki. You can tell his end will be bittersweet and redeeming… it already is!"

Hope you all like! God bless.

thank you so much! I just got into this stuff b/c of Avengers and the other movies. To start a comic book search for good Loki stuff... where does one start?

I did watch a few cartoons on Netflix, Thor: Legends of Asgard and Thor and Loki: Blood Brothers. Oh, and Thor vs. Hulk. I enjoyed those. But I was at Barnes and Noble the other day and there was a small assortment of Marvel Comic books... nothing of the original stuff.

awesome. I think the Thor/Loki comics are called Journey Into Mystery. But those babies go back to the 50's!! Don't know where to even start. XD

Whoa....your description is epic-packed!!! It's as great as the picture!!! You make me like Loki. I sorta liked him already too. But Thor is HAWT.
I saw the Avengers cause Mom was taking me to the movies but nothin else was on. Now I have to watch all the rest too!!!

ohhhhh thanks so much!

When I saw Thor I liked THOR. Never paid attention to Loki. But after Avengers I took a second look at the movie through a different pair of eyes. Now I love them both. In Avengers, they really focus on Loki (well, he is the main "villain.") I hope in Thor 2 we get lots more Loki.

Nice!!

Love the detail on the outfit! Loki is hands down the most fantastic, sympathetic villain I've ever seen on film for the very reasons you've pointed out. And yes, Tom Hiddleston is brilliant in every sense of the word. :D

How cute! Loki is pretty awesome. ^w^ I tease my sisters about fangirling over Loki, but I can't talk seeing as I fangirl over Erik. XP He's an awesome character with a lot of depth, I think. The Avenger movie was so awesome too. :D

:icondarthxerik:

Thanks girl! It's true, him and Erik are both similar in that they are one of those "onion" characters as I like to call them.

SUCH a good movie. I've seen it twice and it's like I need to see it again!

YES! Loki in your style makes my life that much more complete. ^^, And you have a tumblr - awesome! Isn't it just weird how ever since 'Avengers' came out, everyone's tumblr, regardless of who they follow is pretty much JUST an endless stream of Loki and Tom Hiddleston? Also: much, much admiration that you actually went to so much effort on the outfit. Even in 'Thor' his outfits were murderously detailed but in 'Avengers' the costume department really just outdid themselves.
