Viking by Nafah Viking by Nafah
Here is a viking I painted. Or is it a Valkyrie? Hmmm. How about this, a red haired lady with a neat hat? :B Hurrrr........

In other news: I was thinking about starting up DA commissions, though I admit that I am a little scared to. I've only ever done face to face commissions.
If anyone has any helpful suggestions, that would be lovely!
Have a beautiful day!

Oh yeah, you can see some work in progress shots on the BLOG!! [link]

Gosh I really love the way you color! Her hair looks beautiful here and I like that there always seems to be a hint of some kind of story in many of your drawings. :)

Came across this on the Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor tumblr, looks good! Particularly your use of solid colors instead of relying too much on the lineart.

See i study Viking Archaeology and all the time we're reminded that Vikings didn't wear helmets with horns and wings and it still upsets me cause those helmets look bloody cool!!! :D

I've been working on a viking-inspired project for a long time and have studied as well(probably not near as much as you :nod:), but I figured, to heck with it! It's far too cool to not do! :D

Oh man, this is just blowing my mind! I love that your work has so much movement and livelihood to it :)

I love her hair especially, and the braids/ties! And of course her helment is so badass! Awesome job on the features :)

I really love her face, too, she's got a warrior look goin on! The mountains are a really nice backdrop.

This is probably gotta be one of my favorites! :D

I like the ambience of this piece. I typed "Viking" in the search box and thought I'd immediately see large rugged men...that's when "she" popped up! How refreshing! Well done!
