Viking Portrait by arisuonpaa Viking Portrait by arisuonpaa
Practicing a more loose style than normally. I especially paid attention to having both soft and hard edges, plus using neutral grey next to warm color to make an illusion of cold colors.

Painted in about three hours with Corel Painter X.

~arisuonpaa did beautiful work with quick strokes in light and shadow. Viking Portrait is just one inspiring example of this artist trying something new and pushing for growth with each piece. ( Featured by y2jenn )

It is hard to believe that this is a digital artwork. It looks so much like a traditional oil painting. I love your style here. Beautiful work!

I'm a real fan of your style. The old man is constructed of what would seem a few brushed up lines, yet they tie in together well, creating his hair, and details on his face such as his wrinkles and expression. I also love the lighting and the colors and hues. All in all, it is a well-constructed piece f art. ^_^ I'm a fan :D

power power power, of light, quite 3D as I allow the image to control me.... nice hard fast brush strokes, raw to the core but unlike the subject, deep deep deep in the long walk of his life. just love the light on the nose, old style art is the timeless triangle past never. What is he thinking in the darkness behind those eyes? SJ
