Artwork Description

Right, the association with norse mythology is superficial but I'm sure he kept a lot of vikings company on long sea voyages. Until he got hungry.

This picture inspired me to get my first tattoo on my left ribcage. Beautiful piece, the shading really add's character to the doll

Man, I don't know you, but i adore your work. I wish there was a way I could meet you. Just one conversation over some Earl Grey tea of some sort. Truly, you are amazing.

gah!! it's brown, it's weird AND it's norse. i especially like the way the wooden planks very simply allude to a viking ship. i think it'd be interesting to see a 'thor' one also.
anyways, i think this one is a really great peice. Cool

Holy moly. You do good pictures. I keep asking myself, 'why the hell am I only discovering this guy now?' Great to see you're a fellow countyman, aswell.

the subtle colour effect came from painting the entire image in the same palette (brown) and then "tinting" areas with overpainting on a Soft Light layer. I used a Gradient Map layer (b&w) to darken the image. Photoshop is great for things like that.

So Dark.... I love the colour (or lack there of) looks great! the missing eye is genius.

Yea it does remind me of john Vasquez or Romane Dirges. The colors work well and that one eye stands out. I think its cute in a dark gothic way. Great painting.

teaweed's picture

Yeah, there's definately a bit of Gir in it

megaflow's picture

Fun and creepy - reminds me a bit of Jhonen Vasquez.

That solitary eye...what horrors has it seen?

Art at its best.
