Aurora Borealis by LordDoomhammer Aurora Borealis by LordDoomhammer
This one is number four and brought me quite some headaches >.<
It took me almost forever to find a suitable way to create those foresthills.
It is not yet done, there are some changes I wanna do yet, but I wanted to post all these prior to sending out my next portfolio, which is most likely during this weekend, so an update will do :)

Used reference for the Viking´s Pose. I am very happy of how the grass turned out :)

EDIT: I finally found the muse to overwork this one! I remade the Aurora and changed the overall light, so it doesn´t look like there´s a spotlight directed at the viking anymore, but the aurora being the main lightsource. Hope you like the change! :)

Hope you like it! :)

Vikis! :meow:
Hm, ich find beide Versionen haben was von den Nordlichtern her. Unterschiedlicher Stil, aber mir gefallen beide. Ich mag die Berge im Hintergrund =)

omg i love the grünen dinger am himmel
they are so shiny~
i'd love to see that on the real sky...
what i will probably never will -sight-
okay, back to the picture
hihi the viking looks as if he is posing for a photograph xD
but he looks amazing with all those little falten in his klamotten
i love how much details you put in all your pics
the only thing that is kinda strange are his eyes... they seem as if they are too high, but i don't know your reference, so it will probably be right
awesome mood dude~

Yeah, my reference actually posed for the camera and his helmet seemed to be a little bit too big, which explains the position of his eyes ;)
The grünen dinger am Himmel will be overworked, it is supposed to be (as the title suggests) an Aurora Borealis ;)
I love how you mix english and german^^
But thank you very much! :)

No, they can also come in green. But most of them are a mixture between several colors ;) But I might change the colors when I overwork it ;)
