Artwork Description

Something that good makes me wish I had gotten into painting. This is realism at its much detail its mind-boggling! From the braids, to the ragon on the axe to the intricacy of the horn. Just beautiful mate, well done. If I had 1/4 of your talent I'd feel accomplished!

I've long been a fan of Norse mythology over most others. Old One Eye always did seem to have a fascinating story to tell and I think that you've done an amazing job of showing that here. Thank you for this.

This really is wonderful work. You get such feeling from all the different textures of his clothes, giving a real sense of how they would feel to wear. Fantastic!

Spectacular,absolutely wonderful. I'm astounded by the depth and detail of his gear and armament. I am a big fan of viking and celtic mythology. What a noble pose and expression. A masterpiece.
