Great suggestions!
I would also love to see: a mother instructing her child, an expression of the friendliness towards other folk, the (collective) condemnation and exposure of the wrongdoer and the wrongdoing, the uniqueness and beauty of the differences between different folk, the hunger that couldn’t be stilled by gold, the Dutch/Frisian setting, the rescueing from the flood of the manuscript “together with you and your mother”.
There is so much that could beautiful be depicted!
Keep up the good work!

Finally I have a somewhat working computer again, so I’m posting the scribbling I’ve done with the suggestions in mind.
Most of it is still just trying out, or a fast idea

I love the concept of the last one of Frya, as well as the idea for Kelta. The rooster in the background is great.

Great work, Kraftr. You are clearly making progress.

The one of Friso's children is particularly touching. I had never visualized that scene myself.

Thanks guys. Allmost everything is just ideas, getting a feel for how I could make it into a definitive print or painting or pencildrawing. Somebody said something about my skill with the human form in an earlier drawing so I’m refreshing my skills on it. And I now I search for the most dramatic scenes in the story, that can be shown by human figures.
For Kelta it made me realise that the studies in ‘witchcraft’ she got was a sort of mediatraining avant-la lettre, and the spear and climbing on a horse was just good showmanship, like a rockstar. Cocky, as per the text. That’s why I also want to show her as sexy, because she also used her attractiveness.
Butt I thrive on and like to get challenged by critisism and other feedback, like the remark about my drawing of human figures. So be specific about what you love or don’t agree with(like, what are good clothes/attributes of Freya, or I should just finish one of them already), it will push the best out of me.
Jan, I would love to co-operate like someone proposed, like make coverart, or sell through your portal, but I am actually still too awestruck by the manuscript and humbled by all I don’t know or am, so untill it reaches a quality level I’m comfortable with for posterity and forebears I don’t feel like ‘the’ illustrator, just rekindling my artistry.

Frisos children, im not clear what to put beside the banner, here are a yul and skull/spindle, but maybe lions or some floraldecoration is better
