Yet again, another viking. Standing there all...distant?
It's very good. A great example of what Vikings really looked like, unlike most of the rubbish drawings on devART with horned helmets.
Except really instead of an axe he should be keeping his balance with a spear. (Axes were for poor men who couldn't afford swords, and he obviously already has one of those, so he'd no use for an axe. Plus spears were a very common and useful weapon.)
Axes weren't always just for the poor, in fact the amount of engraved and inlayed axes would speak otherwise. The spear was undoubtedly the most popular weapon of the viking ages, however. Also, he's holding what is sometimes referred to as a 'Dane' axe, the massive weapons of Huskarls and the Varangian Guard. But man this is like, mad old.
awesome stance and details! faved
Realistic and detailed, great picture of a Norse warrior.
Indeed, could use a bit more fur, but I'm not complaining. This is damned good! I tried to draw a viking last night... It looked ok (It was horrible)
Yay finally someone has done a proper viking drawing, I hate all those people who portray them with horned helmets and double-headed axes, ridiculous.
Hmm... a very nice amount of detail... could use some photoshop touches but as I am SO BAD at drawing I comment you
