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?

Hey guys, as you can see I've just changed the post tittle to fit not just my first fanart but to be a general post for all of my fanarts.

So, here another one that I've just finished. In this one I'm like "stealing" Banner Saga concept art style, but I hope you guys feel it more like a tribute to your amazing artist and not much of a style steal. And, of course, its just an atempt to reach it because I couldn't get the density and depth of detail at this one, as it's my firt time trying to do something like this. I hope to get better though! And I hope you like it!

edited: ...well, I think I can't change the tittle, but anyway, I'm posting everything here.

Hey everyone! It's been awesome going through the threads here and seeing the fan art and stories everyone has created.

Thought I'd share my Banner Saga inspired art started after a Factions play session a little while back that I finally got around to finishing. Tried to give it my own take on the fantastic art and design of the Banner Saga world. Can't wait to see the campaign finished!

I'd love to hear what you think, hope you like it!

Hey thanks for the awesome response guys!

http://www.odicart.com/ is my current portfolio, but pretty out of date due to NDA stuff. I have more recent sketches and studies on my blog here: http://nikolaodic.tumblr.com/

Here's the original sketch I'd done a while back for this painting, changed a lot since then but kept the overall composition, was mainly picking at this painting during lunch breaks from work:

Howdy Folks!

I'd love to give our fans some support and especially those artistic folks. If any of you folks have created fan art (any shape or form) it would be great if you would post it below with a brief description and in turn we'll share it via all of our channels and give you a shout out!

When the forums were first made a bunch of people were using this thread for posting their fan art in: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?109-Banner-Saga-themed-doodles

There are a couple additional additions spread throughout the forums.

Spaceghost's really cool remnants of a backbiter after a battle and a landscape of a Varl blowing a horn can be found here: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?1775-Digital-Painting-Backbiter-Memories

SirGreenSock has a jaw dropping battle illustration here: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?1870-Varl-Fight-Illustration

Also for those that have access to the Kickstarter section, there are a ton of gorgeous fan made crest designs for the Kickstarter reward: "Be a real part of The Banner Saga! At this tier we'll provide you a template and you provide us with YOUR OWN CREST DESIGN which we'll put into the actual game. In both single and multiplayer, players will choose a family crest that represent them; this is your chance to get your family or guild symbol into the Banner Saga (must meet a few reasonable decency guidelines - see the FAQ). Includes all previous rewards.". For Kickstarters, that can be found here: http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?34-Need-help-with-Crest-designs

I'm not much of an artist myself, but have loved all the fan art we've seen so far. Can't wait to see more! :)

Thanks Slimsy, I'll be copying the content of those threads and other stuff I find to this thread in a day or 2 :)

Edit: Done. Seems there's also some fan art hidden away on tumblr.

I tend to feel a little awkward about self-promotion, but if they're the ones you're talking about, the couple that I did are on the thread titled "Celtic Centaurs" here in the Meadhall.

@gaelvin: That's right, I had your first centaur image in mind. I only just saw the second one (also very nice).

Woohoo, I got it!

I kinda feel bad getting that for free, so I'll share a piece of fan art I did a long time ago :) I've learned a lot about art since I did this, so I'm not completely happy about it anymore. Hope to do some more Banner Saga-inspired art soon!

Very nice. Not rendered in too much details, but the shadings and face look great to me. Is that a scanned pencil drawing, or a digital one? Actually, the only thing that bothers me is that this Varl seems like he's used a hairdrier on his hair! :D Oh, and his horns' angle is too right ;) Varl were hand-crafted by the gods, right? All artists here would agree that gods generally shun straight lines :cool:

Erik, most users that frequent these forums are already well equipped with units, so, I think that the Starter Pack ain't very appropriate for them. Perhaps if you announced it in-game, or did a small facebook/main-site quiz, with a question whose answer is in some of the trailer videos, the Factions intro or the website? For example, "What's the relation between Rook & Alette?" You could leave the quiz open for some time and then do a draw for the winner(s). Well, you get it; the point is to have new players browsing the site, consuming TBS stuff and getting hyped :)

Aye. For the Vigrid tournament. The sword was called "The Chalice" :) Very cool. Also, the shields capture the Nordic theme very well. They look like the Thrasher's shield.

Well Gud did submit an art piece so I think it's ok he got it. Future codes would likely garner more attention on twitter/fb :)

Myll_Erik
12-04-2013, 08:42 PM
Indeed - more art = more codes. Ideally I'll be picking from people who submit art or other fan generated content. :)

Hello! I haven't been on these forums since about March. :eek: As I understand it, there was a vulnerability issue with the old forums. Well, the new forums look a lot nicer. :D Since Saga is nearing release, I thought I'd stop by again. I enjoy Factions, but I got busy this year and kind of stopped playing it. I'm really excited about Saga.

I made both of these back in Feb., but this first one I recently reworked into something a little looser and muddier. Neither are in the greatest completion state, however, I thought I'd share them regardless.

Someone had joked about John fighting off Nidhogg during that first week Factions was officially released. So I made a silly drawing of it. :P

Very nice, both of them. You put some spice in the --normally-- "icy" looks of the Skystriker there. Also, I like John depicted as a a Thor with sideburns :D

And, thanks for the pieces of nordic lore -- NÝ­h÷ggr (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nidhogg) & Yggdrasill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yggdrasill)

For the texture part I don't know yet, I am thinking about making a 3d print (if I am happy with the final sculpt.)

There was this other attempt at a 3D bust ( post #15 in this thread (http://stoicstudio.com/forum/showthread.php?1926-Featured-Fan-Art&p=24600&viewfull=1#post24600)), a very faithful sculpting of the Warmaster character. Unfortunately, the person who made it never shared it in this forum; it was just stumbled upon in Google Images...
