The viking and the unicorn by FischHead The viking and the unicorn by FischHead
The Norse Vikings were warriors, barters, and pirates who raided, traded, and explored wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic with astonishing courage. What history fails to mention is the fact that none of this would have been possible without their most trusted sidekick, the unicorn. The magical unicorn, known for its intemperance, would forget its ferocity and wildness when tamed by virgin maidens but the opposite deemed true when paired with the wildness of the viking. The two made the perfect pair.

Hope you like it! please comment and critique!

Sadly, no. I know there's print-on-demand places like Spreadshirt, but we've
never been big on that. Think we should give it a try?

Ha! The perfect pair, indeed. The contrast between the unicorn and the Viking works very well. It's cleverly done! I especially like the way you played with sizes and anatomy. This design is simply fun!

I like the style of art and the viking character.... it reminds me of the early 70s where characters were made like this and they were racing cars - it was big for about 3 years.... what I don't like, you may find offensive - lol... it's the placement on the unicorn - the viking doesn't appear tobe riding it - he seems to be "mounting" it.... if the viking looked like he was riding it, I'd wear this - however, with the placement, I could not wear it, I know people would ask me if I believed in beastyollogy - lol placement/posing is everything - lol... cool art though.

FischHead Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012   Digital Artist
haha interesting thought, he is kind of riding the rump there isn't he? He's above the tail though so it's kind of hard to think he's doing anything inappropriate. Thanks for the comment though!

posing is everything - lol... the mane though looks like it could be the tail... I mean, when you made this, didn't the placement of the character seem odd?

No not really lol I mean I get how you could interpret it that way but hopefully it won't be a common misconception. But, if I do win I'll mention this to DA and see what they think :) Thanks!! :la:
