Sketchy Vikes times two


A couple of vikings, one cartoony, the other kinda cartoony. They both share the same expression. I guess vikings do walk around with their all mouths agape like that. Cretins.

Man, that top one is so intense! I love it! I've always been a huge fan of mid-valued paper with line-art and highlights!

Thanks everyone for stoppin' in & commentin'. Brandon--These were done with a black prismacolor "Col-Erase" pencil & white charcoal highlights. I took the scan into Painter and punched up the values w/ one of their pencils. Thanks again!
