I always loved this bust when I saw so many nice versions of it but i had no idea how hard it would be too paint with all that fur and hair. I made a decision to gift it to Benny Sa at Euromilitaire as a thankyou for his friendship and support both personally and on my website figurementors.com.

In my head i visualised him not as a roaming viking, but an elder who had stayed at home to defend his town whilst the others were away raiding. He was hunting when he heard the horns sounding the attack, on his return to the village, he witnessed chaos and slaughter, stirring the warriors left he rallied an attack and drove off the enemy! This is him immediately after the battle, adrenaline pumping through his veins, fury upon his brow and blood splattered across his skin and furs.

I hope you like it, it was my first attempt something like this.

    Great work buddy, in the time when I followed progress on this bust it was exciting for me because in that time I worked on my Shieldmaiden bust. So it kept me in Viking spirit. :)

      Thanks David your input is particularly valued, I was wondering how to improve it and the most difficult thing for me was the fur, any tips? Maybe that’s a figure,enters tut??!
