Happy New Year!
I’ve been working on this piece since April 2013. Now it’s finished and on New Year’s Eve too. I began this illustration as a part of the Artorder RockLove Viking Jewelry challenge. I struggled with it for a long time but I stuck to it and now I’m pretty happy that I did.
It’s heavily influenced by the patterns used in the RockLove Viking jewelry as well as general things from Norse Mythology and ancient Viking culture.
