.:this is my design:.noir:. I’m stoked about episode 2 tonight!!! I thought I’d post the black and white version of this, as this piece and the covers I’ve been doing have given me a chance to explore my digital color process. I’m finding interesting solutions or myself, but still lose a little bit in the final, like the books in the back, the antlers and fish hooks, and the mad dog in the back. Important things like slowing down in the thumbnail and pencil stage would save some of that heartache in the end. Talking to myself helps too — I’m not crazy! This jacket is a little tight though.
Here’s the full color version:
— which was selected in the Hannibal Poster contest which… drum roll please… has me doing the poster for THIS SEASON’S FINALE!!! It’s an overwhelming honor, and I can’t wait to get started —
As the History Channel’s first foray into scripted TV drama, Vikings follows semi-mythological Norse hero Ragnar Lothbrok as he brawls with other burly Viking dudes, smirks at his awesome shieldmaiden wife, and kidnaps lithe young monks from English monasteries.
With a dynamite premise like that, it’s no surprise that Vikings became super popular within seconds of its first episode airing last year. It basically typifies the History Channel ethos of being ~kind of~ educational, but ending up as slightly trashy yet super addictive entertainment TV.
The four main components of Vikings are:
1) Muddy battle scenes where the frame rate is slowed down so much that it’s like watching a slideshow of hunky Nordic men grappling with each other.
2) Random detours into an undergraduate lecture on Norse mythology.
3) Awesome and completely made-up punk Viking hairstyles.
4) A three-way marriage between two hot, muscular Vikings and their Christian slave.
We’ll give you one guess as to which of these points inspired Vikings’ Tumblr fandom.

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
