RAGNAR LOTHBROK - Speed Painting by jodeee RAGNAR LOTHBROK - Speed Painting by jodeee
I have just started the second season of Vikings and I have to say I think it's superb.
Much better than I had anticipated if I'm honest. Was looking for something to fill the
GoT shaped hole and it's doing a wonderful job.
I've loved Travis Fimmel :heart: for ages so he's a bit of a bonus for me. I think I want to paint Lagertha too.

This is really good, you nailed his expression perfectly. I'm Swedish and I know the Sagas and was reluctant to watch the series, finally I did and loved it. :D Nice strokes, very fluid.

I was very pleasantly surprised. Vikings are almost always depicted as brutes in foreign films. I think they were no worse or better than the rest at their time only with a technological edge in their ships.

Yes, they've been depicted in a much different light in this programme, 
you're absolutely right! Maybe it's because it's been made by the History
channel? I appreciate some of it has been dramatised but as a whole
I think they've tried to be as accurate a s possible with the show.

I recognise a lot of it. We had to read 'the son's of Lodbrok' in school. I don't think there's much written about tRagnar. Heck there's not much written about the Vikings by the Vilkings, a few runestones, that's it.

I suppose when the only accounts about you that exist are from the people
who you attacked or invaded, you're going to wind up being somewhat demonised.

That is normal so I guess yes. Fun facts the latest 'runestick' was from the 1800 and found beneath the floorboard of a church. Old habits die hard. :D

The second season is even better than the first! Thank you :)

I may draw more GoT if I get the time. I am booked up at the minute
with commissioned pieces and I find that I need these little speed
paints/portraits to keep me going, keeps me motivated and stops me from
getting stagnant on a piece so you never know.

I would love some time to paint an original piece, it's been far too long
since I did one. I'm hoping all these portraits will help inform my work.

I love painting portraits, I find them much quicker and easier to do than my other work.
I think because all the decisions are already made for you. colour light proportion etc.
Thank you very much ;)

Tough, smart, but he's never happy with what he's got.
If he has one, he wants two, if he has two, he wants three---Lagertha was more woman than he could handle anyway.

This image captures all that and more---it's that look in his eyes.

A concise description. He only ever wants more. I suppose his ambition, greed  and cunning are what 
makes him pretty perfect to be a jarl and wherever it ends up taking him. Lagertha's amazing. I love her
character, a wonderfully strong female character and she was a good match for him. He fucked up on that front 
I'd say.   

Thank you :)

Yeah, but Ragnar can't help himself, and I think that's what draws the women to him---good girls like bad boys.

I'm watching the final 2 episodes of season 2 tonight, I can't wait but I don't know what I'm going to do when I've finished! It does
get better with every episode. I really want to paint her :) She's definitely my favourite female character, if not my favourite character
entirely.
