    Nothing wrong with coffee ... nice job on the horn of plenty.

    Some really nice digital paintings too.


    Thank you! Actually this reminds me I have to re-host my earlier stuff (thanks PB :P). And thanks again--the digital paintings were definitely a "cross my fingers and hope" learning experience!

    Loving the atmosphere of Coming Home.  Great perspective.

    Now I know why you couldn't put  horns on the helmet ;)


    Yep, that is exactly why! ;) Still pondering your suggestion for a Viking portrait; as you might guess, I'm gonna be fussy about that one.

    A lady from Norway contacted me a couple of years ago when she was doing her family tree and found we were related.

    My son keeps saying he's going to do a DNA test to see if he's descended from Vikings

    (personally I think he's just using it as an excuse not to shave and to go berserker on nights out ...)


    Nice work


    I have bad news for your son: Norwegian, as I mentioned, on both sides and can't find a Viking in the bunch. My mom's side is descended from the early kings of the Rus via the Jarls of Orkney (good chance of some berserkr blood in that line); my dad's side were the priests/caretakers of a pre-Christian holy site that's now under a church in Vossevangen. Neither side had a heck of a lot of reason to go a-viking!


    If he really does fly into a berserkrgangr then...well, good chance you have some elite warrior blood! Given the incredible quality of your work, it wouldn't surprise me if you have some artisan ancestors as well.


    Thank you again--a comment like this from you has me almost moved to tears. :):star:

  2. First of all, that's a really pretty picture; are you the photographer?


    Second, I assume you're looking for the clone stamp? That's going to be in your Tools menu in the left column, eight icons from the top. It's a little brown stamper with a silver handle. It should be right above the T for text.


    Does that help?

    @LionsDragon ... nothing wrong with not adding horns.  Tutorials are always there for people to run with and put their own take ( I'm planning ahead to make a face visor to replace them) Nice little scene you've got going on there.  Have a drink  for me


    I hope you don't mind, this horn's filled with coffee. :) And thank you! I had the Viking Axe from a previous competition and had the wall from last year's Yuletide card, so the rest just kind of fell into place. Thanks for the inspiration!
