It almost seems redundant to add another comment full of praise, but damn. Amazing work. Love the storyboards.
so a lot works...really dont know what to say :) Very beautiful!
I love those story boards Hurri. You are an example to everyone of what can be achieved with dedication and hard work. This whole body of work is super solid but the story boards have so much style. Congratulations!
This stuff is amazing hurri. Just in the year and a half or two years i've been on conceptart.org i've followed your thread and seen you grow as an artist. Needless to say you were already amazing, but you've been getting better, and better, and better. This is definately without a doubt the best stuff of yours i've seen yet. Keep it up dude, you are really an inspiration.
I love the detail and all your work. I look forward to seeing more.
*Sound of jaw hitting floor*
Amazing artwork- a big learning source and much insperation for me!
nice nice nice
Love the work man. I'm totally going to go get this game so I can see your work in action. Hope the gameplay is good, I really haven't played a good viking game since "RUNE".
I like the thumbnails more than the finished stuff - but that's just my personal preference. Solid bunch all in all!
can i pick my jaw off the ground now..? more to the point, can someone else? i've been completely and utterly torn assunder and rendered useless.
It looks like this game is very realistic and true to history.
Those storyboards really show a different side to your skill set and a good one at that. That's something that came out of the blue since I've never seen you do that before and the fact that it's done so well speaks volumes about your range of abilities.
Lovely work all round and by the many many comments its truly deserved. I used to come onto this site just to look at your work because it was so inspirational. Seeing all the hard work and effort you have put into your art, this game truly deserved your attention. I'm so happy for you to have been this successful, very inspirational.
You've just kicked my behind back into gear, seems I've got my doodle bug back, thanks :)
Oh and I have this game! I like it :D
been playing viking and the start sequence set the mood of this game, and what a great mood it set.
Please keep up the good work and continue pushing yourself.
Pleasure to view. Luke
dude. holy shiiitt, I LOVE the line quality you got on those viking dudes in the storyboards... oh my goodness. :) Its so awesome, please find some more you can post and post it :O, I'm gonna save these and stare at em
God damn. Put that bar WAY out of reach why dontcha? Good lord. Though if ever something wanted to make me reach for the wacom pen, this is it. Just incredible. Makes me want to play the game!
NASTY. I'm buying this game. Thanks for the artz.
As nearly everyone else is saying this is really great. The thing though that bothers me is the first chap where the colouring is a bit muddy on his abdominal area apart from that looking really sweet!!
Valhalla or bust man. Im still picking my jaw up off the floor.
How many sketches/drawings would you do in an average day of this job?
I have the exact same job as you right now for another game and I suppose I'd just like to compare work output. You are very inspiring and I feel I can learn a lot from your storyboards as we both use a subtractive method of rendering from black shapes (except you are better of course).
Please keep posting whenever you can. I would also be thrilled if you ever looked at my stuff at some point.
Thanks for posting here, stellar work.
No wonder this game is awesome. I just found this post and have played the game for a few hours and it is beautiful. Now I know why =)
Damn... that's stoopid good. Great source of inspiration. Thanks for the post!
WOW, I'm in total awe of your work, and there's so much of it...you really have had a busy year!!
Love all of it, no crits...made me extremely happy looking through it all, thankyou so much!!! Lol.
You = WIN!!!!
All your work is a very professional-Thank you for the working inspiration you give to my mind.
best regard form a long distance colleague!
Right...bro.... you know what I think about your stuff... but I hadn't seen those storyboards like that... Like Mike said, totally out of the blue! They're fresh as they come! Looking forward to seeing more of your progress!

Here's some more of what i've done for the game. I was the one responsible for creating the look and feel of the game with our engines ingame postprocessing tools. It was a lot of fun creating heavy rain or sunny days. Full controll over the light ans shadows and time of day. TONS TONS OF FUN...
here's some images. (taken from Eurogamer)
Did I tell you I´m gonna buy a 360 just to play this game?!?
Seriously... this is a wondrous work. Really fantastic. Keep the greeeeat work and take care!
andre_allao : thank you very much :D That is quite an compliment hehe
Im not shure whats cooler, the Thank's List or the Pictures. ;)
