Viking Warrior by severeene Viking Warrior by severeene
Gerard Butler will star in the latest Beowulf adaptation by Sturla Gunnarsson. This painting was thought to try out the capacities of Painter IX. So far there are still many things to learn about this program! So please post more Painter tutorials on deviantART!

Wow, after all this time, I find the original drawing. I stumbled across this and people even thought it was a painting of me, or that I had let my hair grown out. The shape and color of the eyes, the angles in the eyebrows, the bridge of the nose... it's a little creepy. I'm glad I found this. Thank you!

Tell me this isn't LOTR inspired :D. I has a Boromir-esque flavour. But I suppose the Rohirrim are the Vikings of Middle Earth. But I think otherwise it really expresses his nobility and freedom, which is what we all want from a Viking. Plus a big axe, but I can forgive that.

The brighter the light, the darker the shadows.
Je heller das Licht, desto dunkler die Schatten.
Waat d'Liicht méi hell ass, emsou méi donkel sin d'Schieter.
Plus la lumière est claire, plus les ombres sont foncées.
Quo clarius lumen, eo obscuriores umbrae.
Cuanto más clara es la luz, más oscuras son las sombras.
Piu' splendente e' la luce, piu' oscure saranno le tenebre.
Ju starkare ljuset, desto mörkare skuggarna.
Jo starkere lyset, jo mørkere de skyggene.
Dess sterkare lyset er, dess mørkare vert skuggane.
Guangxian yue liang, yingzi yue an.
Jo stærkere lyset, desto mørkere skygger.
Kuluma yazeed al dhau sawaad al dhulu yazeed.
Što je svetlo jače, senke su tamnije.
Quanto mais clara é a luz, mais escura é a sombra.
Hoe feller het licht des te donkerder de schaduw.
Hoe feller it ljoch hoe tjusterder it skaad.
Com més clara és la llum, més fosques són les ombres.
Cu cât e mai strălucitoare lumina, cu atât mai întunecate sunt umbrele.
Čím jasnější světlo, tím temnější stín.

I love the picture.
I play a character called Björn in a role playing game and I always imagine him like your picture. Björn and your viking resemble each other very much and that made me fall in love with that picture.
Furthermore, the drawing and the way of shadowing and lightning the hair and the robe are perfect ;)
great job
