Sword Dane by woutart Sword Dane by woutart
This pen drawing was inspired by the books of Bernard Cornwell. A Sword Dane (Danish warrior, aka Viking). Could also be a Saxon, as their dress and weaponry would not differ that much. I did not use any reference as to the correctness of the equipment. I just needed to get this one out of my system.

Pen on double A5 spread, approx. 2,5 hours.

A warrior in a peaceful place, what a nice contrast! I love it

Is there any clean up before posting it on DA? Do you use pencils first to get a rough sketch done, then use pens (ball point?)
The precision and effectiveness of the line just kills me. Love your personal style anyway ^^

Hey Fred, thanks.

No clean up, no pencils. These are 'no mistakes allowed' pen drawings. For these I use black fineliners. Drawing with ballpoints is probably the most relaxing way to draw, especially blue Bic's! ;)

In my world, drawing with a ball point is the most excruciating, stressful time. Why? you said it yourself, "no mistakes" allowed :(
What part of the universe are you living in again?

Jokes apart, please, keep inspiring us all ;)
