This weeks Art Dump features some more Viking masks. Because one of my favourite shows History’s Vikings is back for its fourth season I am planning on drawing one for each of the characters.
Below You will see one for Athelstan (Applestand for the true fans) and a fan favourite who is in some trouble this season Floki. the other two are based off one of Thor’s Rams and the other one of Gefjon’s (Goddess of fertility and farming) Ox’s, thought to have plowed the fertile Danish island of Zealand.
In other news this week has been very busy, I’ve had a few hiccups in my month of habit forming (watch out for future post)but needless to say I am back on the horse.
Speaking to GDC’s Year 13’s
This week I had the opportunity to speak to the students in the final year of my old high school. I think it is that the whole exercise is an awesome idea and I hope those who have added me afterwards found it of value!
I will make a post reiterating what I touched on next week, most of which is similar advice that I have given in previous posts.
Even though it was cool to speak to and hopefully motivate the students the best thing about the experience was catching up with some of my old teachers and hearing about the changes to the school.
I plan to go back in the near future to speak to the art students about their multitudes of options after school, in particular digital art, animation and vfx (all of which I had relatively no idea about in high school). For those of you interested in the area I studied here is a link to my showreel of work from last year: https://vimeo.com/148603652
Until next time.
