Very nice. Your work, such as that image of the last mother, could easily qualify as a book cover for Jan's next release of Codex Oera Linda, if the two of you would ever agree to that. You draw Frya-like motifs very well.

If there is any scenes or other depictions you would like to see from the manuscript or its concepts be made into an illustration, I will gladly make it. I’m getting to the point of starting printing my first attempts.

Some noteworthy scenes that come to mind are:
  • Syrhed/Kelta addresses her intoxicated followers at a feast as she stands on a horse and leans on her spear (En 09a)
  • Minerva/Nyhellenia lectures the Greek priests and princes from her seat in the Athenian burg on Frya morals (En 4f)
  • Jesus (the real one, not the corrupted Biblical Jesus) addresses his followers somewhere in the Middle East about common consent, equality of wealth, avoiding greed and directing one's passions (En 15c). He probably looked like the recreation based on the Shroud of Turin, which is often discredited by the mainstream; more info here.
  • Frana directly addresses the Earth on a Magyar ship and makes a prophecy as the confused and angry Magus looks on (En 11b). The difference here is that the picture would be of her talking, her gaze pointed to the skies, as opposed to your existing drawings where she is thrown overboard.
  • Adela addresses an assembly in a burg or hall called somewhere in modern-day Friesland (En 1b)
  • Adela and her family fight for their lives in their home, killing several Magyar assassins (En 13c)
  • Alexander the Great and Wichhirte engage in diplomacy in the local Frya burg or hall in Geartmania (southeastern Iran), sharing bread and salt (En 14d)
You could also draw different angles and places of the burg Liudgarda, which the burg maiden Apollonia describes in detail (En 13h). For example: “Looking down from the tower, one sees the shape of the Yule.” So, an angle could be of the burg from above, whose mound was likely circle-shaped like the old “Viking” fortresses; see here. Keep in mind that the Frya burgs were made of brick.

Another example: “On the south wall, the Tex is written; to the right of it one finds the Primal Teachings, and to the left, the eawa (laws). The remaining three walls hold other texts.” So, a picture could be of a wall where one can see at least part of the Frya writings, written in the original Fryas font. I think that they likely had a more angular and symmetrical font when writing on walls, since that would make it easier to keep the letters and lines straight and compress the lines vertically, and also because the Greeks and Romans likely inherited this angular font in their wall inscriptions, but that is just my theory. You can see some examples on the wiki font page under Wagumskrift.

You could also try drawing a “Frya-style” maypole festival.

The last obvious example would be to draw Frya herself, perhaps seated in a burg, or standing on a hill looking out to the North Sea with a pose that embodies dignity, calmness, motherliness and strength. I know that would be useful to Jan, at least, since it could qualify as a book cover. But in any case, it would be very nice to look at, and you have a lot of artistic talent.

Minor note: if your images are too big to attach to the forum, you can as a temporary measure (until we figure out a good solution) upload them to Imgur.com.

Thank you so much! These are great suggestions.
I have the bad tendency to rush through texts, so please correct me, but I understand the borg to be the circle wall with defences surrounded by a moat with two similar longhouses and a stone tower with an entry on a higher floor so the stairs could be hoisted up, as I’ve seen in depictions of medieval borgs, that were just a tower. They could be merged into one building. The tower in the middle is the actual borg as far as I understand, borg meaning safehouse, or ‘keep’ in castles. If my understanding is correct the measurements are about 30 metres high, 6 wide, in stone, the longhouses 6 high and wide and 30 long, made of wood, (or also stone?) probably they are groundlevel, but all could be on a raised mount, maybe even steps like greek temples. They could be positioned on the yulespokes or straight like the trelleborg houses, beside the path from gate to borgtower, a shape that is seen in many castles/landhouses, creating a court.
If there are steps this could even create an amphitheater in the court.
The.mother could be holding audience in all three.
The yule could be just the round wall, or maybe garden patterns or pillars like in timekeeping sanctuaries. I also think there was a garden maintained by the maidens. And maybe the houses outside the moat were circuluarly positioned, and may have another wall and moat, aproaching Atlantian design.

Anyway, the other ideas are what I was looking for, because pictures can make the text more inviting, and
I would love to make some heroic, ‘biblical’ stuff. I’ve tried the minerva scene but this was very elaborate. I have to work up to it.
I am working on an image of Freya. Thanks again!
I can post pictures when my current pc troubles are fixed.

I re-read about the borg, and see much where I was wrong. A funny thing to find out about myself. Maybe it’s because I read the book, and this continuous wiki-text is easier readable.
So now I picture the whole thing in stone, exept for maybe the base of the ring wall. The halls are very long, maybe all the way from north- to southside.
There are additional houses on north and south side, maybe two to the side and one inbetween the halls on the tower axis.
Fighting practice is outside the borgwall. And this area is scarcely filled with houses and defence materials, and a real ring dyke surrounds all of this. Would the outsides be shaped like starforts?
Then the Liudgarda is inside that outer ring or a separate walled area outside of it.
Completely different than my drawings anyway, much less primitive than I thought.

I think the parts where the abroad Frya folk interact with characters from known other sources — e.g. Alexander, Nearchus, Demetrius — could qualify well, which was also one of Pax' suggestions. That there exist depictions of these known names may make it somewhat easier.
