So...this happened.



Honestly though I love this, the whole concept, the detail, everything comes together magnificently.

I´m impressed how in the whole comment section for this,the name "Skyrim" isn´t mentioned a single time.Except now by me,of course. As it seems that you have a quite strong affinity to mythology and especially the nordic mythology,I´m really curious if the big guy depicts an actual god/semigod from there..since I thought Hel would be the one responsible for the underworld,I assume this guardian is the one to take the honorable dead and put them to sleep until the final of days when the Ragnarök begins..those "vikings" not appearing all to fantasy to me as little as the casket,I wonder if you could tell who that sad old man is.
Please Monsieur Gaillet,I know you from time to time read comments and SOMETIMES even answer them...will you do me the favor?
Although an explanation of course would in no way be necessary to keep the fascination of this work up.
As I just took my breath to ask why none of your artwork´s available as a print -as far as I´ve seen it- I´ll rather ask a different question: I s all the artwork we see in your gallery comissioned/professional work or are there some personal works amongst it?
Just wondering...
