picture thread! (modem users beware)

in an attempt to wake this somewhat dormant forum up i've created a picture-thread, (feel free to croon a fanfare of your choice here) so go ahead, post some pictures you've found online that you like or perhaps some of your own works. and don't forget to comment on what has been posted, not doing so would make this thread loose it's meaning, if it has any that is


i'll go first then; here's a nice one made by an artist called Fredrik Rahmqvist :



i really like the motif and the cartoonish style it has been done in, it also depicts a part of history i'm very much interested in.

Yeh of course friend, I've got some toonz on my camera. http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/bc/pat...tos.yahoo.com/ Still working on my "Swedes-to-Switzerland" sketch, and that's some funny shit. "Radovich" the main character is ME, btw...blaah...

OK, two of my favorites:

Keith Parkinson, a very competent artist who's done cover art for a great number of fantasy novels, games et.c..


Gustave Doré, a French 19th century artist, well-known for his illustrations of scenes from the bible and Dante's Divine Comedy.

This is one of my favorite book covers from my favorite H.P Lovecraft novell. Well this is how it looks in Denmark, don't know if what you have in your native country.

haha yeah and not to mention denmark, the highest "mountain" there's like 300 meters or something right?

the comics seem nice but it's hard to read what's written, but the drawings look really nice.

gcele i've seen the first one before and that guy's just stunning, think i've got some other pics made by him on my computer.
the second one is really cool it looks so "evil" in black and white and when it's done in that style, is it woodcut? great anyway

Himmelbjerget! Our proud and joy, takes like 10 minutes to get up there but what the hell. Yeah, it's cause the damn scanner isn't working so right now I'll have to just take pics with the camera. Glad you enjoyed the drawings though, it's nothing serious or showing my true talent, but damn fun making! Now make sure you don't do something hyserically comical or YOU will end up there too hehe...

Boat burning, the Viking way, during the Viking market here last weekend.



A show with two burning swords that two friends of mine had at the same market.

Awesome design Spaffe, mind to point out that is it the cover of one of Asmegin's album, a great viking folk metal band. Cannot wait for their new album.

Yeah, I suppose so, either that or some kind of copperplate engravings, whatever they used in the 19th century

Another cool illustrator is Hans Arnold, who's specialized in horror and fantasy (-ish) paintings:


And of course, the king of troll paintings, John Bauer:

Oh but still we're lucky to have at least Hobgoblin, the brewery is very small after all. but man, Hobgoblin isn't even half as good as Fiddler's Elbow...well, that's my opinion at least.

PS: About John Bauer, I'm at the course for Swedish folklore in Gothenburg right now, and Ebbe Scön is here! Great guy

what sort of course is that? is it at the university or what? sounds very interesting anyway, how did you sign up?
