Dream of home by whiteshaix Dream of home by whiteshaix
And we all know that will always be Asgard, for him.
Well, I swear my idea for a Jötun Loki sleeping in the snow was not just a cheap excuse for drawing him shirtless. It's just that Frost Giants never wear that much clothing, so it felt right. :D
My scanner totally killed the subtle shades, so you get a photo instead.
Pencils and white paint on blue paper.
(I'm definitely reading too much fanfiction. But I don't get why so many writers think Jötun Loki should have horns. Laufey didn't, at least in the movies.)
(**For some reason, I always end up drawing men with beautiful, slender hands. Must be my fetish. ^^; )

Davvero stupendo (e non solo per il soggetto ;)), ci si perde a guardare ogni singola sfumatura e lumeggiatura :D:heart:

This. is. BEAUTIFUL! *Flailing*
I'm not sure where the horns thing on Loki came from either(besides his helmet), but if you look closely at Laufey from Thor 1, HE actually did have horns. vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/m… We can guess that Loki probably doesn't have horns canonically because his half-Asgardian status cancelled that out, but maybe if he spent a little more time embracing his Jötun heritage, he would evolve a little bit. I've also seen Jötun Loki often depicted with pointed ears, which is cool, but doesn't make a lot of sense. From what I know about frost giants, their ears are actually more part of their skulls and appear to melt into the sides of their head (see the picture again and look at Laufey). Loki would probably be different and have at least sort of normal ears since he's not pure Jötun(and thus likely better hearing), but I doubt they would be pointed.
[analytical rant ended]

Well, I' m pretty sure Laufey is wearing some sort of crown/oddly shaped helmet in that picture. Besides, it's green, like his jewels and armor. They seem to melt into his skin, but I don't think they're part of it.
Anyway, I also believe that Loki is only half frost giant (we never see his mother after all).

True... That would be a question for one of the actors or directors.
I have personally accepted the headcannon that Loki is an Asgardian-Jötun hybrid. Since he was born at the time the Asgardian-Jötun war was raging, there probably would have been some kidnappings on both sides. Laufey probably got his hands on an Asgardian woman prisoner of war and something weird happened. I can't imagine Laufey being the most sexually responsible person. (And plus I have heard of rape being an unfortunate, though existent, form of torture in order to get information.) She got pregnant, Laufey didn't notice until it was too far along and he didn't want to have anything to do with Loki, leaving the delivered baby to die until Odin found him. Does that sound sort of like what you were imagining, or do you think of it differently?
I also think Frigga was probably the one to name him.

Loki as a jötun and still looking like himself is a rare and precious thing, let me tell you! This is amazing and beautiful and hurtful and stunning.
I love how the light reflects in his hair and I wish I had the ambitiousness to draw something in such detail and realism as you've done here. The white snowflakes and the dark ridges on his skin are to die for

Thank you very much, "still looking like himself" is exactly what I wished to achieve. :)

This is exquisite!  (Which is only proper, since this is Loki, after all.  *grins*)  And there's no such thing as too much good fanfic.  *nods solemnly*

(I also wonder about the popularity of horned Jotun Loki, I think he looks awesome without them)
