Awesome picture. I love the scope of it. Odin and the Asgardians partying as Jesus is sacrificing himself for humanity triggers so many ideas and criticism within. I could write a paper on this piece.

The only criticism about this piece that I have is about distinction. In a piece such as this, as a giant Marvel Thor fan, I wish to see the core characters of this mythos made more visible and distinct than the commoners in the bakground. Odin is perfect, but Thor and Loki kind of fade into the back, so to speak. They dont stand out as much, especially Loki. I think I found him but still aren't sure. With Thor, I seebakground him beneath Odin but I also see another asgardian in the far left background and it looks as though he has the Uru Hammer in his hand and is talking to a loki-esq (I hope I used that right lol) character. He also has the winged helmets, while the helmet for the Thor under Odin has an unfamiliar headset style. Another thing is the girl under the Thor. I can't really tell what she is laying ontop of. She seems to be the only one mourning the Death of Christ.....but she could just be tired. Idk. There is another female to the right of her who I'm assuming is Sif, but she looks a bit to girly to be her. Sif is usually portrayed as a dominant figure, especially when during celebrations with her fellow warriors. Although, she does soften when the Thunderer is around, so I can she why she would be maiden-ish. I'm probably being too picky though because I'm a fan of the comic. So, only problems I can really see is that two of the big characters aren't distinct enough. A few minor characters, such as the Warriors Three or Balder or Sif, would of been an extra cherry on top of this delicious cake.

I'm still shocked at the Jesus Crucification in the background. I can only imagine what is going through the Allfather's mind. "Sacrificing himself for the mortals of Midgard???? Hahaha!! Yonder godling must hath consume more mead than my own son hath drunken of the sea!!!

Awesome piece, man!!!! What was your thought process behind it?
