Congratulations to Maximilian, AndrewDavid, LionsDragon on some most impressive (and rather scary) entities. I particularly liked the view-angle of Maximilian's entry, the complex handle of AndrewDavid's entry, and the blade engraving on LionsDragon's entry.

 

Sorry I didn't have the time to submit my own.

@MJW, thanks! I didn't want to go as over-the-top as the Mammen axe (almost certainly a decorative/funeral piece, and I wanted something that might see some use). However, I knew it was traditional to carve runes on weapons or on pieces that were for rituals. I thought three Tyr-runes (tradition) and a nice gripping beastie would be a good balance.

I hereby salute everyone involved in the contest, much especially those who made me win! :lol: I always enjoy doing Vikings-related art and the idea for the ax contest began with this sketch I've been working on for a while now (still needs improvement):

I had meant to submit a second entry —roughly based on the first one though with its own distinctive features— but couldn't finish it on time, so I thought I could show it here once the contest was over:
