Viking by distritopapillon Viking by distritopapillon
Some time ago the great Ivan Brandon invited me to do a pinup for one of his comic stories: Viking. A story with an interesting and original approach to the theme and to the matter of crime. The title is being published by Image comics and illustrated with the gorgeous art of Nic Klein. My contribution its not for the cover but for a gallery of invited artist. Its always good to be part of so nice projects. They remember me that its possible to make good and original stuff( story and art) with comics.
Thanks Ivan! And for you guys and girls out there, put your hands on the Viking series, its already on issue #3!

I love the realism of this, unlike most who tend to go for over the top viking horns or swords or even oversized hammers.

Agreed!!! As a norwegian who knows a thing or two about vikings, that's spot on! This picture is such a good illustration of vikings. BTW, They never wore those stupid horned helmets!

Vikings are awesome, and so is this picture. Though whatever he killed must have been rather short or on its knees because there is only blood up to his waist. Though the hawk eating entrails is a nice little effect :D

How "Viking" is it? your pic looks to depict a rather realistic pagan world. There's no horned helms, and that's an epic stash lol, anyway the characters look great. I'm sold. Good job man.

The one in the center kinna looks like Rasputin, and plus those dark colors reminded me of Hellboy comics, haha!
I love it <3
