End or beginning by treijim End or beginning by treijim
Done at the request of

This has got to be the longest I’ve spent on one picture. It took almost 10 hours to complete. I simply could not do bodies and debris around the shore – the proportions simply did not want to work for me. I put a few rocks around instead to make it look less bare. Let’s just say the enemy Vikings on the horizon, sailing away from the land, attacked from the other shore.

I know my pictures aren’t usually this… dark themed, but it seemed like a good idea when it was requested and I rather like it anyway, despite the bloody sword and overall hopelessness of that one Viking’s life. Perhaps it’s the beginning of an adventure anyway…

I have to ask... HAVE YOU EVER PLAYED RUNE!

Lee Thinks not... in which case you should know.

This is so Rune...

Anyway, Best of your pics so far I think IMO. The whole wind situation bothers me a bit but I don't think that can or should be changed now. A lot of wind needed to keep the that flat in 1 direction, yet no waves...

I actually thought about the wind thing, and really it should be blowing against the shoreline visible, hence not really creating much waves.

WOW you're finished with it X3 IT looks sooo much better than the unfinished version you showed me and you did a wonderful job with lighting, especially the flames and the reflections on the water near the viking ships! Great atmosphere! :D
