Cocky, as per the text. That’s why I also want to show her as sexy, because she also used her attractiveness.
I like your reasoning. Indeed, this was one of the scenes I first thought of visualizing, years ago, when I challenged someone else to draw a sketch. The (black) witchcraft (not to be confused with what people were accused of in more recent ages, as an excuse to murder them) will have included use of entheogens to influence consciousness of victims, without them knowing: TÁWER.KRÛDON, magic herbs (055), TÁWER.DRANK, magic potion (064).

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.
That sounds great, Kraftr. I can see that happen in the future.

As for the practical work of the OL-Foundation, it will need more volunteers, perhaps an editorial committee, or an existing publishing house (that does not merely see the book as a cashcow) to do much of the work, as I feel less able to make the efforts of the previous releases. My creative impulse/motivation now mostly lies at making the original language more transparent, so I can more easily teach it to others and write/speak it myself — bring it back to life. The thought of having to create layout/design for a new book, making deals with printer/binder, processing orders, managing financial administration and shipping frightens me. Yet, I am satisfied that thus far I did not have to associate with companies like Amazon and such. Doing everything myself was a good learning opportunity though. (This turned out to be more of a personal revelation/gentle hint to those who have the ears to hear, than just a reply to what you wrote).

I will try to give more/better feedback to your work.

I don't think Frya's hair should be like that. Fine/thin, light blond hair is usually straight and flexible rather than going all directions, in my experience. Her eyes/facial expression seems more melancholic than powerful. What if she would stand straight and the lying lion at her feet would look up to her (waiting for instructions)?

Kelta is great. Her fanaticism is tangible.

Interesting idea to make a burg styled after a starfort like that. I had not seen it that way yet.

Friso's son: arms and neck may be too long. Banner may not need attributes.

I like Kelta this way, look forward to a colored version. Body shape may be further improved.

Frya's headwear may be over the top. Instead of Frya, you could aim for a random (or specific other) Folkmother. If I'd have an altar at home, with an image of a strong, protective, inspiring mother, I think I'd rather have one standing straight, having a posture as if everything is under control. This mother looks as if she is in danger. This could be from an existing scene, for example Frana being attacked, but then all the attributes she is carrying are too much.

This is indeed the kind of feedback I missed. Because I don’t know enough or can get lost in my interpretations.
The wild hair and cat-headwear were insipred by Xiwangmu, and a thought of an acient godess who would be a bit more ‘wild’ pagan. Dionysian greek mixed with Athena. The wildness being the unruleable, free spirit, connection with nature, the ‘flow’. To me Freya is mother of Europe, godess of all types of love; eros, filios and agape, but also protection and vigilance. Willbett I believe relates to Freya/love. Will= Love, strength, foresight, selfknowledge(Ishtar who may have the same root in deep history became more whoreish demanding and conniving in my opinion)
So I gave one Freya eggs and put the swan in a defencemode next to the other Freya, and hint at those wings on Freya.
Because maybe that is where the image of angels came from - Luthers swan may have been a hint toward people who still knew of swans connected to Freya, making it a rallying call.
The girl with the lion is indeed more sensual, Aphrodite/Dionisian, less godlike, but it just pops in my head and I draw just for the fun of it too. I think this looseness helps to reach something museum worthy; I imagine it done in a “Rembrand/Rubens’ style for instance, lot of brown tints and seductive curves. I’m mixing all this stuff up, intentionally to find more, and have a playingfield artistically, and will bring out something truely recognisable as the real holy mother, I hope.
Though I agree designing a bookcover should be done conservatively, and look dignified.
I will make new versions of everything for some time untill excellence appears. I’m not really a businesstype myself either, I just want there to spring some sort of (religious/cultural)community from this(imagine a Freya school for freya girls, protected from the crazyness, or international exchange of Freya students to meet a mate, like european girls used to travel to marry back then, and in Neanderthal culture before)
So working together through the stichting could make more fysical things happen in the future, prehaps. although I also hope to make some money honestly.
For instance, I’m thinking of making an idol/multiple idols, kind of 3d printed by a friend and it wiil probably look best if it’s a ‘simple’ medieaval Maria style figurine, or Ny-Hellenia. The german video was very inspiring for this, with the cloak, or 3, or 7 maidens, depicting 7 virtues/pleiades) just a few things like the Yul make her into Freya in a very holy and old timey European way.
Below idea.for a logo, on sailorstyle clothing?

Incredible work. Very good job on all the drawings, including those that are works in progress. I especially like the way Syrhed/Kelta turned out and the way you interpreted her scene. If her physical allure is important, then I suggest making her slightly more curvaceous.

The most recent drawing is also very nice. I like your inclusion of swans in your motifs generally. You spelt and drew RJUCHT and FRYDOM incorrectly. I have attached an image of how they are rendered in the Standskrift and Wagumskrift fonts.

okay, I can make a linocut version of this. Later also a color painting. I think it is nice that it relates to Christ and Mary, maybe bridging the ages in a familiar style. Regrowing the fractured bones of Europe.

Frya51 appeals to me the most because the heavens and Frya's dress are more detailed. If you have the time, it would be nice to see a more fleshed-out version of that drawing.
