The gods decided to shackle the Fenris wolf (Fenrir), but the beast broke every chain they put upon him. Eventually they had the dwarves make them a magical ribbon called Gleipnir. It appeared to be only a silken ribbon but was made of six wondrous ingredients: the sound of a cat's footfall, the beard of a woman, the roots of a mountain, bear's sinews, fish's breath and bird's spittle.
Fenris sensed the gods' deceit and refused to be bound with it unless one of them put his hand in the wolf's mouth.Tyr, known for his great wisdom and courage, agreed, and the other gods bound the wolf. After Fenris had been bound by the gods, he struggled to try to break the rope. Fenris could not break the ribbon and enraged, bit Tyr's right hand off. When the gods saw that Fenrir was bound they all rejoiced, except Tyr. Fenris will remain bound until the day of Ragnarök. As a result of this deed, Tyr is called the 'Leavings of the Wolf.
I wanted to paint Fenris more as a magical mythologcal creature rather than just a regular wolf, What with him being the son of Loki I figured he deserved more.
Still not great at drawing realistic or men but eh not bad really on Tyr!
The scanner makes it look weird, this looks so much better in person, Fenris has more of a smokey look with the paint where as in the scan he looks like he was colored with dying markers.
