Vikings by kingmong Vikings by kingmong
Work piece for WizKids! They needed a 16th century Viking pirate ship, so took me sometime to figure out the forms and structures.

Hard to imagine what would Vinkings be like if they survived the 10th centutry and beyond... Hope you folks like it! ;)

Vikings never had wings/horns on their helmets.

But seeing as the art is splendid, I'll overlook it this time! :D

you know
I just wonder why there is a cannon and a gun...
not really the way of the viking
but still
cool stuff... I am betting it has to do with it being part of a game and whatnot...

Spectacular work, yet unfortunately it has a flaw - Viking longships only had 1 veil, not two.

yess that is a very intresting question, i guess if they did survive we'd still have a bunch of crazy fuckers, and plus the invention of cannons, som crazy viking with a cannon straped to his back... who knows....

Beautiful painting!

Not to be anal...but is that a two-mast longship? 'Cause examples like that were never made...I think... And by the 16th cent there weren't any Vikings proper left. They kinda nationalised by the 12th cent.

Anyway, a beautiful, evocative and slightly aggresive painting!

And remember, we're not raiding and pillaging! We're liberating them from their oppressive possessions! - Viking Captain's Battle Cry

I love this picture. You not only got the Vikings, but the Viking ship, the cool Viking scenery... Very nice.

Oh, and the earliest form of Vikings in horned helmets come from as early as the 12th century. While it is true Vikings didn't do the horned helmet thing, they were depicted as "horned demons" by monks, priests and artists very early on. This was a way of demonizing all Vikings so everyone would basically be afraid of them. Maybe that's an interesting bit of info...

From a historical standpoint its inaccurate, and we Vikings still live :)... we're now called Scandinavians hehe.

Lovely painting though, nice contrast and colours. I do love your backgrounds, they always have the camera blur look. :)
