Art Sneak Preview: Thor

Hey, there, everyone - it's time for some art! Unfortunately, we don't have another whole set of lineart ready to unveil again this week (according to the artists, they need "time" and "food"), but we received a direct request for a look at everyone's favorite Norse god of thunder. We've got his prelim sketches, so let's take a quick peek!

Did you guys want muscles? I hope so. Because muscles are happening.

Clearly, the artists were out to capture Thor's raw physical might, badass hammer-wielding skills and red-bearded, giant-smashing rage, and they're doing an excellent job. Personally, we especially enjoy the incongruousness of Mjolnir's very short handle - the ancient Norse thought it was hilarious, too, after all.
