Son of the North by ARTOFJUSTAMAN Son of the North by ARTOFJUSTAMAN
This image was a present for a work colleague who asked me for an image to use as avatar. What started as a quick painting ended in a high res image with a good amount of hours of work on it. What can I say? I'm a good colleague.

The image was done in the middle January of this year. A month later or so, I march I watched the first episode of Vikings and I couldn't stop thinking about the similarity between this character and the main character of the series. The funny part is that my main inspiration for the look of the guy was the internet infamous Techno Viking, Lol!

I used as reference this image from :iconmjranum-stock:
Check his stock is amazing.

Done is PS CS5.

Comments, favs and watchers are welcome. Thanks.

This is fantastic, any way we could use it for a book cover, buy the license? Would love it if you made it available for sale, brilliant! Thank you!

This picture is full of so much testosterone that I think I'm beginning to grow a beard and mini testies.

:clap: :clap: :clap: sooo cool!!! i really like what you've done from the ref pic. I liked Vikings too, but couldn't come up with my own version. So i bow :bow: :-) he really stands out. You certainly are a good colleague :-) :thumbsup:
(have you though about a dramatic background? Dark, grey, with clouds or something? i'm not criticizing, i just think it would really add to that)

Thanks for your comment. About the background thing, of course a background will help to make the image look better, maybe in the future who knows.
