Aloha y'all.

So yeah, this forum needs more fanart- after all, many people here were attracted here by the banner sagas gorgeous art-style...so I assume there are other drawing type peoples here?


I'm not much of an artist myself- more of a scrappy doodler sort, can't colour and can't shade, but I figured I'd get the ball rolling:

Serious viking is serious.

Sven....untrustworthy? Who would ever suggest that?!

Hrolf Wolf-Cloak really wouldn't get on with PETA....

Kaffo, could I convince you to mirror upload these to imgur? I'd really like to see the images. Not sure why I get all these frog-in-icecubes placeholders instead when others don't.

Sure thing, here are the imgur versions- hope these work for more people.

A Varl Stonebreaker and what I envision the Spearman looking like. Just a 45min lunch crunch. Nothing fancy yet.

I can't believe I'm only just now getting around to fan arting it up for Banner. I'm so enthused and looking forward to a beard-tastic journey curated by some of my favorite artists in the biz.

Holy mackerel, these are great! I love the title 'stonebreaker' for a Varl and the hostile guy above has some sort of banner-axe weapon! Makes perfect sense in the Banner Saga...
Keep them coming!

Another quick doodle. This time a bit more in the vein the beautiful art direction.

Nice proportions on those arms, Konrad. Also dig the double braided beard and tats!
For bonus points: Who can tell me what item on the above Varl (weapon, shirt, boots, shield, leggings, wrist wraps, etc...) is slightly incorrect to our fiction in regard to the Varl and what it would need to be changed to? :)

Hmm... I'm thinking that the shirt should be a tunic. Or is it that the sword should have a crossguard?

Maybe the horns should be less goat-like.

The weapons? i always pictured the sword/shield combo to be inherent to the humans whereas the varl would be more for two handed weapons

Arnie
10-14-2012, 11:07 AM
Our Shieldbangers have a shield and 1 hand stabbing weapons. So, nope!
If no one gets it by Monday I'll give the answer.

Guğmundr
10-14-2012, 12:21 PM
Should the shield be a kite shield instead of a buckler?

Arnie
10-14-2012, 01:17 PM
Bingo! Varl took to using kite shields to help protect their lower legs from the smaller races. Humans use the round shields.

Konrad
10-14-2012, 02:47 PM
I'm going to change it to a tower shield just to spite you. Maybe he'll shave down his horns too to show how he's bucking trends and stereotypes.

Arnie
10-14-2012, 04:06 PM
HAH! I called it a "slight inaccuracy". :)
I think you should just shrink the shield so it looks like he took it off a dead human. Now that would work perfectly with our fiction.

Konrad

Tell you what: give me some real guidelines and I'd be happy to do some free production art for your nerdgasm of an IP. Haha...

That's probably one of the hardest foreshortening angles to do and you did not shrink from it. Nice stuff!

Sword should be an AXE!

PS. I realise that's not what you were looking for, that's just my opinion :D

Yet you still are totally right, we of the Axe lovers federation demand taht all weapons become axes. Even bows.

Maybe he should have a hole for his head on the shirt and make the shirt overall 'looser' (I feel that it's too tight on his masculine body )

So, I'm looking through this forum and enjoying each piece more and more (Neverhouse's archer and Mila's colors!)...and then it just stops. I realize the last entry was only a couple of days ago, but we need more! It's a well-established fact* that game production speed is directly proportional to the amount of fan art supplied.

*This fact has no statistical backing and should be read as, "Please keep the amazing art coming!"

Thank you for your reply, Drew! I personally have been busy with rl (moving and all) but reading this kind of feedback sure gives a lot of incentive to do moar art. I may upload some doodles (not finished pieces though) in the next few days. Weee--! :D

I've lost track of the thread where I heard this, but apparently every Varl was created by the actions of one of the Gods, which explains why they are all male. This makes sense in the context of their conception as a tragic race: with the Gods' death, there can be no more new Varl and each one that dies diminishes their race.

But I got to wondering; what if one of the Gods had the foresight to give the Varl a chance at survival and purposely created a She-varl before the end?
