Welcome to the eighteenth installment of my Morning Coffee & Sketch series!
This morning I have decided to draw on another show that inspires me in a very big way; History Channel’s TV series Vikings. The show is so rich and everything from the landscape to the costume design and the casting is second to none in this field.
I decided to do a quick sketch inspired by the show’s main protagonist Ragnar Lothbrok. I didn’t go for an exact likeness but whilst sketching it occurred to me that I will create a more detailed piece of Ragnar further down the line, his character is a very interesting one and his image is insanely inspiring.
Anyway, here’s the sketch –
The Vikings are a a people from history that have always inspired me, especially with the inner workings of their lives and culture; after all they weren’t just plunderers and raiders there was much more richness to them than that; that’s why I find the TV show so appealing as they delve a lot deeper than the violence that lies on the surface of this people.
That’s all for this morning, feel free to subscribe to the blog to stay updated and until next time, farewell!
