The vicious hunt by SharpWriter The vicious hunt by SharpWriter
I've missed the breeze of my home shores
the frozen lakes and winter snow
but now my dreams start to unfold
father, I'm coming home

Vikings, well what else can be said. They kick ass, but wait...hes got a robot arm. Yup, cybernetic vikings, they just one upped the original vikings in cool factor.

This if an entry for the "out of the mist" contest on ImagineFx forums.

Awesome work. Took me a while to realize that they weren't just vikings ... ^^
Also, Amon Amarth lyrics make anything even more awesome, plus Embrace Of The Endless Ocean is one of my favorites ^^

Great one, like it even though I'm not much for cyber.
Tip though, if even ever put any horns on viking helms, make them like the "gute" sheep/goats. Donno english words for them, but it's a goat/sheep race from Gottland (Island beloning to sweden).
Really neat work! fave

Garey Busey.

Also, there is no evidence to suggest that vikings adorned horns to their helmets.

They also didn't have cybernetic arms, doesn't mean it doesn't look badass though.

you know, I just read a scholarly article that said Vikings were not in fact horned savages running around in pelts eating mushrooms raping and pillaging but were actually the best of the best, warrior elite who had become incredibly well equipped due to their established trade routes at the time and towards the end of the norse's prominence were being employed as body guards and almost special shock troops.

Just stopped by to say that I really enjoy your vikings, maybe especially the shark fighting one (kicks ass on so many levels ^^)

I like your work with the lightning in this one and I really liked the water texture as well.

should you ever find it you want help with horse anatomy (even cybernetics ones) feel free to ask me anything ;)
