And they danced


During the Victorian era it became popular to imagine all the Nordic folklore creatures partying together in the hills of the elves. It's something I've always wanted to draw, and I finally did!

The musicians
On fiddle is nøkken
On flute is a lygtemand (lantern man)
On drum is a dværg (dwarf)

In the back
A ginatess dancing with a jotun (or ice giant if you like)

From left to right
A troll dancing with a mermaid
A male elf with a mare (nightmare woman)
A nisse with a mosekone (bog woman)
A huldrekarl with a slattenlangpatte (saggy long boobs)
A female elf with a åmand (stream man)
A brøndmand (well man) with a huldra

This is one of the cutest things I've seen all day. I set it as my laptop wallpaper. c:

My favourites are the troll dancing with the mermaid and the guy on violin. <3

The mare looks so happy. Well I mean, they all do, but the mare stands out to me for some reason.

Seeing the female elf and the swamp man dance makes me inexplicably happy.

Actually a better translation for "Lygtemand" is "Will-o-wisp"

It's great that they're having fun!

And I can't help wondering if the red-head's single.

Hey, humon. I know you probably won't get a chance to read every single comment here but I just wanted to say thank you. Your art often helps me feel better. Today has been really, really stressful for me. I won't go into too much detail, but I have very strong anxiety and I pressure myself to over perform when I'm at work.
And.
Things didn't go well today.
Seeing your positive artwork just really lifts my mood up a lot. I'm so glad that you're still creating artwork and I'm very happy to be a fan of you. Thank you humon. Thank you so much.

I love the fact that when you draw folklore you only dress the creatures that are described as dressed. I adore the way you present Scandinavian folklore, and I love sharing your comics/art with my friends outside DK. You explain our stories better than I ever can, and your art is beautiful.
