Crown Prince Loki: Storyboard 1 by Beginte Crown Prince Loki: Storyboard 1 by Beginte
In which Thor is the king, Loki is redeemed, and Baldr leads a revolt to usurp the throne of Asgard.

I'm practising my storyboards, and this is a crossover between a storyboard and comic, due to dialogue bubbles and layout. And as I recently watched both parts of Henry IV, I got heavily inspired by Tom's captivating performance and the whole epic rendition of the story :D

So this idea for Loki's redemption (well, post-redemption) came to my mind - Odin is dead (probably died in some battle a while ago), Loki is reformed and made Crown Prince and heir to the throne by Thor, who is now the king. Meanwhile, Baldr whose mother made every object in the world swear it wouldn't harm her son, leads a rebellion to usurp the throne, since he is invincible in battles. Until Loki cuts a twig of mistletoe...

In this one Thor and Loki have been fighting on two fronts, and Thor arrives to Loki's battlefield to see how his brother is doing.

I'll be doing a few storyboards for this Thor-and-Loki-vs-Baldr scenario, most of them inspired by scenes in Henry IV :D I hope you like them :)

And, by the way - in this version Frigga is not Baldr's mother. Since it didn't seem she was in Thor.

Comments are loved :D

And they all lived happily ever after, The End. I actually like the idea of Thor and Loki sharing the throne, if that's possible, they're just both so different and have such different strengths and weaknesses. Of course, Loki could also be king of the Frost Giants and Thor and Loki peace treaty between the two nations. Truth is, Loki would probably be a lot better off if something were to happen to Odin and he wasn't around, plus Thor would probably share the throne with Loki if that's what he really wanted.

I don't so much go for Thor and Loki sharing a throne as Thor making Loki his heir and 'acting King' whenever he can't manage or is absent. And yes, I too had the idea of Loki being the King of the Frost Giants and thus Asgard landing itself a nice little alliance. Oh, definitely Thor loves his brother so much he'd be ready to downright make up a schedule with one being King for one day and the other for another, and so on. I'm glad you like this piece, I'll make another of those storyboards someday, with Loki offering to single-combat Baldr, and then also another one, with the duel. Thor present in each, of course :)

I love how you've drawn Loki in the 3rd panel - a really believable portrayal (and that expression *dead*) Great work!

omg I'm intrigued like f-ck!!! This is a great idea, and would love to see more. And I really dont know why but I hate Baldr, so actually it will be good for me to see him as antagonist:P

yiss, go go mistletoe:D Okay, that sounds bad but..ugh. And it's also good you didnt make him be Loki and Thor's brother, that just wouldnt fit it. It's like I heard they would have Tyr in Thor2 (as Thor's bro), and i was like WTF?? And where was he all along when the other two were bickering for the throne? ugh.
Happy to hear you will have a new page to it;)

Baldr: Hi Thor, I'm you're brother!
Thor: Mom, Dad is there something you forgot to tell me about?!
Odin & Frigga: why wouldn't we tell you, about you're brother?
Thor: I don't know, same reason you didn't tell me until recently Loki's adopted and frost giant? (don't worry Loki, I still love you)
Loki: hey, how do you think I feel?!

Oh, yes, I had the same feeling about this, Baldr soo wouldn't work as Thor and Loki's (well, technically just Thor's...) brother, especially not in this scenario =p Oh, that's weird... I hope it's just a rumour! Aww, thanks, I plan to make at least 3 more pages, but they're quite time-consuming, and my exam time is slowly creeping up, so...

yes, i can totally imagine how time-consuming it can be. Comics style always is, and it was a bit surprising to me when I found it out.
well, actually Tyr is in the list on imdb:O

Oooo-kay... I really don't know how that's gonna work... and is it certain he's to be Thor's brother? Strange...

When the news came out, it said "Tyr as Thor's brother" Look: [link]
It kills the dynamic between Loki and Thor, and anyways, it's absolutely illogical.

This is so cool!!! :D

Gotta say, I love the colour scheme, it makes the whole scene seem very gritty which really suits the battlefield :)

And both the Odinson Brothers look seriously badass in this. I think one of my favourite moments in Thor was when Thor, Loki, Sif and the Warriors Three were all fighting together, so the idea of Loki and Thor forming a united front against a common enemy (and, of course, redeemed Loki in general) is VERY appealing to me :D

Also, I love you background. The random soldiers, not too featured and yet not too plain, along with the uneven dirt littered with the remnants of broken weapons, it's just very cool :)

Anyway, as usual, I love it. Thanks a heap for sharing.

Wheee, thank you!!! :hug: Oh, thanks, I spent a long time choosing the colour scheme, couldn't decide between 3 options :D Good, I was hoping they'd appear badass... they'll be badass in another one of those, hope to draw it up soon :) Yes, yes, I'm exactly the same, Loki and Thor fighting together = awesomeness :D Thanks, I hate doing backgrounds cause usually I suck at them, so I'm happy you like this :) Thanks for your great comment :D

awwh god, this is an amazing comic page. <3 I absolutly adore it and awwh it is great. You had to spend hours to draw that because of all the detail. :-) I know how much work a comic can cause - I am currently working also on my Sherlock/Lestrade one and it takes me ages to draw a page. Awwh I like the idea of Loki who is redeemed and fighting alongside Thor. I wish that would be canon. Awwh and Baldor leading an rebellion is kind of an really interesting idea. Very good work.

Yay, thank you so much :hug: Well, it didn't take thaaat long, but it was time consuming, yeah... I'm very happy you think it's detailed :) Oh, I so very much want to see Loki redeemed! I get giddy just thinking about that :love: Aww, thank you, keep an eye out for more of those storyboards coming, I hope to have a new one ready sometime next weekend (take a bit, cause 5 days in a week I'm without a proper screen to colour on, so I can do only sketches...)
