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
