i always liked how they designed that guy! The horns just did it for me! :) Kinda sucks that the armor he wears that pretty much tells evryone who he is is some of the suckiest armor in the game!

The horseman looks wicked, and I have to say the viking reminds of "dragonborn" from skyrim...

Neither... from the film. Man in the Iron Mask; Louis XIV's twin brother.

That helmet the Headless-man is holding looks akin to a certain burial mask found at Sutton Hoo [link]

Ah! Vicious beasts! The best source of exp points in the mornings! :D But look out for Dragons because they are like sharks - they will sense the smell of blood in the air and rush to it's source :XD:

hi there :hug: Thank you very much, and what a great comment ;) Yes i have tried to develop my own style and technique that when used give my art this watercolor effect. I think it creates this "splattered" look that leaves just enough for your imagination to start going :) Ohh and yes, the viking definetly has a communication going on with the god :wave:

Hi Tacskoexe :hug: Thank you very much my friend. Yeah Ive had a heavy influence from Skyrim these past days. I think what reminds you of the game is the Magic Around the viking and the downwards horns. thought that was extremly cool looking ;) Ohh and thanks about the colors ;)

In everything? So for example when you had to do some shopping you put your viking helmet on, took your weapons, sat on your horse and went to "plunder, rape and burn" (read go shopping ;)) like a good Viking does? :giggle:

This is just.. amazing! The textures used give it an almost watercolour like appearance, creating a kind of 'splattered' yet formal look to it.
I love the concept and the way it all seems to stem from the man standing on the hill.

Once again, just amazing!
