Lately I've been reading up a lot about the Biblical, Egyptian and Sumerian tales of the Nephilim or Giants, and then I stumble across your artwork here that (coincidentally I assume) captures the mythology I'm researching quite nicely. Without a doubt the ancients would have believed that these blood thirsty offspring of "fallen angels" abominations (a few of those demon angels hanging about in the background I see ^^) would be more than capable of devouring the sun along with everything else.
Thank you for commenting. I have an interest in ancient cultures, although I wish I knew more and read more about it. I guess this one was more inspired by Fenrir from Nordic Mythology. The piece was more about this hunger for life and you becoming a bigger demon than the demons that live within you. so in the drawing you see them fleeing
Ah cool, I forgot to ask what was your inspiration behind the piece. The wolf Fenrir, another tale of the abominable offspring of the Gods (Loki and a Giantess) being a threat to the order of things and life itself, a recurring theme in mythology... Same with cannibalistic giants, especially in Norse Mythology Btw, if you haven't seen it already, check out the Norwegian film Troll Hunter for some Norse Mythology fun. Your description also reminded me of the film Ravenous, based on American Indian legend of Windigo, a cannibalistic demon that possesses you with an ever growing and insatiable hunger for human flesh that can't be satisfied, and eventually consumes you.
The small creatures looks very cute and interesting - especially the one he's holding in his hand and those little spider-looking ones! The mountains - or whatever they are - looks good in the background! I'm not so sure about the human figure, there's some anatomical issues that bothers me.
