Viking Dude by holoc4ust Viking Dude by holoc4ust
This viking warrior is part of a book that i am making for 3rd year. The theme is forgotten warriors, this particular drawing i wanted to look pretty evil. This is because the "fictional storyteller" in the book fled from his home as his whole village was destroyed by a viking clan. He has basically travelled around the world from there on capturing warriors of round about his time period in a note book. Ive made the actual cover for the book and done a couple of layouts wich ill post soon.

I bloody love this picture, I came searching for a good Viking like warrior for a reference for a book I'm writing and that fits perfectly but as I read further I noticed it's for your book. Either way fantastic drawing, I love how the texture of his hair it is in such detail that I can see each strand, You were hoping for an evil look and it passed it and I'm agreeing with

Wow thank you for all the comments, I put this picture up expecting a lot of negative responses but thanks to all of your comments I can finally stop judging my artwork so much. Thank you all!

This is very cool, I love the shading and the overall tone is great! The armor is great! I might have added some kind of mold line on his helmet, but is this a speed painting? I don't know whats possible.....I'm also really impressed you got the texture in that cloth material! There is only one other thing I might suggest, though it's your art and therefore up to you: Where the Knee guards are...it feels like the area below them sort of don't fit, I almost want armored boots of some kind to be there....but on the other hand, they do flow into that mount of skeletons nicely!

Beside the fact that Vikings NEVER had horned helmets, this is excellent! A very awesome drawing of a Gall warrior though!

Hello.

Strong picture. Would you have a little bit against it if I use this picture for a back tattoo?

Sorry for my bad English.....

With friendly greetings

Thats not what vikings look like! As a swede, and descendent of the norse, i feel very offended by your historical inaccuracy!

I know the comment box says "Advanced Critique Encouraged", but I dunno what I could suggest to make this any cooler in my opinion.
