Chibi Norse God Parade by RasTear Chibi Norse God Parade by RasTear
Or Chibi Norse God Death Parade if you will.

I drew this shortly after the Loki and Bragi one, hence the similar style.

Soooo here we have Balder, Hoder, Loki, and Heimdall. The only character designs here (not colors >.o;; ) that are solid are Loki and Heimdall, Balder's getting closer though. I had a hard time designing Balder because if you read the myths they make it very clear that he is the most gorgeous thing in existance. Dear gods... So I had to try and make him prettier than Loki.... I kept making him more cute than pretty... bah, it's hard to tell with the chibiness but he's getting there. Still cute as hell though...

Hoder kills Balder with the help of Loki, and Heimdall is the one who goes up against Loki in Ragnarok. So, yeah. Poor blind Hoder, tricked into killing his own brother. *sniff* I think I was able to persuade my friend to have Hoder be in the Ra's Tear arc with all the other Norse gods... then I remembered he was killed shortly after the mistletoe incident... well, if I can have Balder float around like a spirit having no one listen to him when he tries to be the voice of reason, I can have Hoder do the same thing... sort of... :shakefist:

(PS: If I spelt any of the names wrong, it's because I'm too lazy to actually check my sources, so meh.)

"So I had to try and make him prettier than Loki...." - no way you can do that. XD Loki is the most handsome thing I have ever seen... and the most egoisitc/narcistic too... :) and I like him this way.

Yep, one of the very few lasting things of the Norse Mythology in our culture today... the days... Pity that.
I'm almost comfortable with Odin's design and Fenrir... I need to learn how to draw wolves properly...

I don't remember anything of Hoder dying, and I've read quite a lot about the norse gods (I had to as I'm Norwegian and it's part of our history, though I do actually enjoy reading about them) But I know that Loki was punished severely after tricking Hoder to kill Balder.

Since Hoder is the one who threw the dart he was the one who killed his brother. Norse honor required Balder to be avenged, which was killing his killer. Hoder was killed right there when Loki high-tailed it out of there, though some versions skim over that for some reason. I am not sure why. But Hoder is quite dead by the time of Balders funeral.
