Thorgirl

A recent drawing of mine :) She's simple but I like her energy :)

They actually did this in a Marvel comic many years back, but your take is considerably more interesting! The Marvel version was called Thordis, which actually means "girl of Thor."

(Which in turn makes me envision a cartoon of her fending off a puzzled Time Lord while saying "I keep telling you, it's Thordis, not TARDIS…")

That's pretty awesome and it makes me think of a terrible and slightly dirty joke.

But, I won't tell it without permission ;)


verification word is 'tratio' (tray-shee-owe): the number of dishonest backstabbers compared to the number of honest persons in a given number of people

A wonderful drawing; I like the left and right angles, the juxtaposition between the right hip and left elbow jutting out...and it's sexy, too!

RAB-
Holy cow I did not know this! And I love the idea of a Doctor/ Thordis crossover. I bet she would tower over him and bump her head on the TARDIS door.

Arkonbey-
MUST KNOW JOKE..... permission granted :)

"tratio" Oh or maybe it's the name of a transvestite second hand shop owner...okay that was lame :(

Robert-
Awww thank you! It's really simple but it just sort of seems to have a life of it's own ;)

Hmm... it's more a rule 63 of Thor than a proper Thor Girl... still it's a good drawing.

After a long night of carousing at Valhalla, Thor swaggers through the columned halls. He happens upon a tired-looking young Valkrie.

"Greetings, young maid, I am Thor!" He leers.

"You're thor?" the girl responds, "I'm tho thor I can hardly thtand up"

Nice! I especially love the striped boots.

MJenks said...

Ugh. Thordis? Really? Can Marvel screw up Norse mythology any worse than they already have?

I guess I shouldn't ask...

Why make her a "Thor girl"? Why not just call her Syf, who was beautiful and blonde, like the picture.

Aww thanks :) So what is Rule 63? I should probably know that but I admit I don't...

Arkonbey-
HA! I love silly naughty jokes :) Thank you for sharing!!!!

Bubbashelby-
Thanks! That's a great compliment coming from you :)

MJenks-
I swear I had no idea Thordis even existed til I drew this! I was just flipping through a Marvel coffee table book and just thought it would be fun to do a pin-uppy Thor girl.

Maybe I'll have to try a Sif drawing at some point :)

MJenks said...

Becca, sorry if my comment seemed pointed at you. It was more my disgust with the way Marvel has ruined Thor and the rest of the Norse pantheon.

But...I eagerly await your Syf. :D

Becca, Rule 63 comes from 4chan's 70 rules of the internet.

It states that for every male character, there is a female version of it, and vice versa.

What this means is that your Thor Girl here looks like a female version of Thor, instead of the character Thor Girl from the following link.

MJenks-
You know this is one of the toughest things about the internet, without body language sometimes it's hard to read the intent of the comment :(

Sorry if I came off a bit strong too! You caught me on a good night :)

And yeah Marvel & DC & most everyone else in the world will ruin anything if you give them long of enough. Sometimes it's like wading through a sea of garbage to find the good stuff but when you do its fab! Treasure hunt anyone?

I will take a stab at some Norse stuff soon.

Anon-
Thank you! Sometimes I feel like a complete internet dope ;)

But boy they sure do get wayyyyy carried away with the female versions of comics heroes. I'm okay with a lady version as long as it makes good story sense and isn't just some silly gimmick but how often does that happen.

If your Sexy Thorgirl starred in the upcoming Thor movie...I'd run right out and see it!
