The Old Mojo is Coming Back or On the Paint Table 31
The old painting mojo is back, after being away for a few months, the last six at least I sat down and decided to do some drawing and painting. Now this chap is a proud Viking from over the sea praising Thor, Odin or Loki or some such deity, before or after a battle. I have gone for a striking pose, giving him the axe and Viking helmet and I am rather pleased with the whole thing.
Now I dont know which is totally within the rules of on the Paint Table, but really this is was is on the paint table. Maybe Sofie can say yeah or hay, I am hoping yeah. This is a couple of the work in progress, I have aimed to may this as close as I can to natural colours that they worn and I know the colours can be very bright indeed. I can tell you painting the mail shirt and the helmet was a pain as I really dont like painting metals as I never think I get it right but I am happy with the results on this one.
I am hoping to have him finished over the weekend and then it is time to work on the background to add him into. Now I have to think about what to actually put into the background but the chap who asked me to do this has said .............................., okay I wont tell. I will leave you with one that didn't cut the mustard.
So everyone have a great weekend and following week.
