I ABSOLUTELY ADORE how you've placed the key elements together and have the effect of Thor coming; but forgive me when I say from an historical point of view there were NO horned helmets during the Viking Age. Not only were the horns(and wings too) dangerous and added weight allowing an enemy to more easily snap a warrior's neck but they could also point out "hey!! This guy over here is an important guy!!"; thus leading enemy archers towards one's captain. Sorry and I do apologize again, I've been studying Norse culture for 30 years; it's one of my pet peeves. Otherwise, I love the whole rounded effect of your work! (and will be going to >deviantnep< to check out her frames and such! thank you for the link to them!)
Hurray for Vikings indeed! I'm in the process of embroidering a friend's funeral tunic. May he never need it for decades to come!!!

I love Amon Amarth. <3 Varyags of Miklagaard is my favorite song to be drawing vikings/barbarians to. :)

Big fan of this artwork. FYI... The gents in Amon Amarth are good people. Got a chance to meet them in Chi. They would no doubt appreciate the tribute.
