Viking by ebas Viking by ebas
as u can see on the sig, i drew this way back in 2010. i dont get told very often not to post something, but when i do, i know its super top secret. so top secret, that to this day i have no idea what this was used for. i think national geographic or something. but after 2 yrs i thinks safe now

im actually happy with this one. i always say there's a sure fire way to tell if an artist is good at their craft...if that artist can draw a figure standing still not doing anything and make it look cool.....then he is a master at his craft. not many can do that. and the reasoning is, there are no special FX to gawk at or extra eye candy to distract ones eye...just pure drawing skill.

i drew this in 5-6 hrs cause thats all the time they gave me. and when that happens u have to rely completely on natural ability. it was a lil challenging cause i had to design him at the same time, and that slows one down A LOT! but its fun for me cause i do it all the time.

i love getting the chance to draw deep shadows, i dont get to do it very often, drawing all the cheese cake i am asked to produce day in and day out. i think shadows and blacks is one of the most valuable tools in an artist arsenal.

GO ASS

What pencils do you use when drawing?

Well Todd McFarlane would often times draw characters just standing still and he states that he often times just does things with what the character has or what happens to be in the environment to dramatize the image. For example, with Batman or Spawn, he would do things with the cape -- his capes were always a romantic concept rather than a realistic one. Color also plays a big part in it too.

So amazingly wicked sick! Makes me want to go Van Gogh-ish and stab my pencils into my eyes for envy of skill.

Not that I'm going to of course, but it's definitely inspiring to keep me pushing my talent to master craft.

Again, so badass!

Seriously reminds me of Frazetta in the way it has subtle gravity to it. Everything displays emotion but not in an overly dramatic way.

Totally and epically baddass.
I think my masculinity has been seriously put in question because of the badassery of this drawing.
It's like what would happen if John McClane and Aeon Flux had a kid together and sent him to live in the woods amongst wolves or some shit.

Swedish romanticism in the early 19th century were partly to blame for that misconception. Link is a real helmet from the viking age.
