Artwork Description

A very nice lady from Down Under commissioned this piece for a historic role-play centering on vikings of the 8th-12th centuries. Interesting stuff, really! (medium: ink, pencils, watercolors)

wonderful texture and composition on this, and your frame adds so much!

I like this because it looks like it could be from a classic William Heath Robinson, Charles Robinson or Rackham book...nice details.

Great color and design on this one.

Thanks, Erin! You inspired me, and for that, you get a ga-zillion karma points!

I didn't know you had this up here! It's good to see that you're showing it off, Christine, it's a lovely picture and everyone who sees it up on my display cabinet comments on how pretty it is.

I like the warm colors in the picture, as well as the border, although it seems a slight crooked on the bottom. It may be too high up on the left, but it may just be my moniter that's making it look that way. I like the texture of her fur thingie and their stylized hair.

Can you say "Multiple Personality Disorder"? Heh...I can't seem to find myself these days....

this is a wonderful illustration! I love the colored pencil/line work mix. The hair in particular is very well done. Every time I think I'm used to your style you do something a little different. . . Smile

Ooh, now this is -very- nice. I've got a little bit of a Norse obsession, me. :}

Thanks, Cyn! That rocks, coming from you! The texture of the paper didn't scan well, however....looks better in person...

Love the bold, graphic treatment combined with subtle shading. The birch-bark trees really caught my eye. Nice stuff Cris!

I agree with Patrick on the style, especially the way you've done their hair. I like this a lot.

I love this rendering style - you've really hit on a nice combination of outlines and color shading.

Art at its best.
