Viking Standing

My second Viking installment.. I had this doodle tucked away in a box in my cupboard, and have wanted to present him for a while. I think he makes a valuable contribution simply for the pleasure I took in having him made. You can make out the design outlines (the cross which measures the proportions) underneath still. I decided to frame and post him here, possibly also I will make a print in a bigger scale on what I may then apply some further investitures!! I now have two north men pictures on my blog!!! Why? I have always felt a lot of inspiration from this historical/geographical idea. I have imagined the small boats and oars and misty fog enveloped fjords and as a kid I was fond of the fantastical elements therein too. That's why! He is that self same idea!
