Hati and Sköll
This illustration is inspired by Hati and Sköll, two wolves from Norse mythology. Sköll chases the horses Árvakr and Alsviðr, that drag the chariot which contains the sun through the sky every day, trying to eat her. Sköll has a brother, Hati, who chases Máni, the moon. Eventually, they’ll both succeed in their quests.
The illustration is a vector graphic, processed in Photoshop by composing several layers of shapes, colour and textures. These have been previously made in watercolor and ink, in order to add intensity, character and a visual impact.
