Old Bones- Draugr Picture

The 1st in a series of 4 (maybe 5) illustrations based around ancient mythologies regarding the undead. Draugr are undead creatures from Norse myth, the word draugr means ghost in Norse apparently. If you've played Skyrim you'll know who these guys are. That said, I tried not to make this guy based upon the Skyrim Draugr though I feel the helm decorations kinda lean that way.

The linework was done using the photoshop pen tool and then taken into Illustrator to be turned into a vector via livetrace and livepaint. Afterwards it was back into photoshop to overlay a paper texture I scanned.

This design is available as a print over on my Red Bubble page, so go check it out if you fancy: www.redbubble.com/people/redti…
