Ok so with this project I wanted to paint a Viking Warrior that was reflective in his nature, tired from marauding, but not depicted after a battle, I didn't want to add blood and splatters. I just wanted to paint a dirty and tired young warrior. I decided to really go for it with the shield design, I hope you like it!

  • Jonasz Łasut

    Great shield mate, love that freehand! Textures on his robes and metals look fantastic and realistic, one think I don’t like is his hair,personally I think they don’t match rest of the bust, but otherwise great job! Gold from me :)

    • Jay Martin (Redrum)PLUS

      Thanks bud, yeah I wanted the hair to bring attention to the face because the helm was overpowering but in hindsight I probably would rethink it if I did it again.

    Amazing work all around. I especially like the shield and cloth textures. Probably your best work in 2017 so far IMHO.

    Great piece.  Fabric, shield patterning and metallics all stand out aspects.  Well done.

    Great work mate! You nailed the metal, texture and the shield! Looks really tired so your idea about him really worked out!

    Big fan Jason and figure mentor supporter . Excellent job again on this price and that shield is some of the most intricate and perfectly painted detail I’ve viewed. Thanks for showing. Keep up the great work.
