My odd thought process here: WHAT IF Kirby had not done Thor in those early years but rather it was done by Al Williamson and Frank Frazetta. I would imagine it would've been a very different type of book with a different look, feel and type of story. This is the sort of approach I imagine they'd take.
I just finished the book Al Williamson Hidden Lands. If you aren't familiar with Williamson's work from the 50's, check it out... you'll be blown away by the quality.

 Re: Mighty Thor
Thanks, Star. I'm happy you liked my render quality since (as usual) I'm behind the times, still using DS3. I doubt you'll actually find any deeper appreciation for this after research but you won't regret doing it either. In the 50's, Williamson and his very talented friends...the other "Fleagles": Torres, Krenkel, Frazetta and occasionally honorary Fleagle Wally Wood produced comic art of such quality, you would have a hard time finding anything better even now however these guys were not into superheroes but fantasy, sci-fi and western type genres although they covered other types well enough. I think they would've taken the book more in a Norse mythology direction. Another thing that points to their influence on this piece is Thor's pose... it's my favorite part of this piece. I think it manages to be strong and dynamic, yet subtle at the same time. To me, it carries a sense of propulsion, an anticipation of the hammer strike to come and the hammer itself feels like it has weight. I know I couldn't have done it without spending a lot of time studying the way Williamson and Frazetta handle action poses.

 Re: Mighty Thor
a nice mix of the classic Thor we've all known and a splash of the true Norse version. I'm particularily impressed with the render work especially the muscle tone. I'm sure I probally would appreciate this more if I had bothered to reference the artist you mentioned. perhaps i will and revisit this later.
