    ChoW#225 :: Viking Berserker



    ROUND #225 :: Viking Berserker


    DESCRIPTION


    Viking Berserker


    Berserkers were legendary Norse warriors who are said to have fought in an almost trance-like and uncontrollable state. In this state they were incredibly strong and didn’t need any armor to protect themselves; instead, they wore the pelts and carcasses of animals like bears and wolves they had slaughtered with their own hands to strike even more fear in to their enemies. The name “berserker” is said to be derived from the Norse words for “bear” (ber) and “coat” ([I]serkr[/I}). There are theories that tell Norse warriors would consume hallucinogenic mushrooms or drink massive amounts of alcohol to achieve this berserker state. They didn’t even feel any pain when fighting! All in all, you didn’t want to encounter these aggressive, mad and terrifying warriors on the battlefield!

    Design a Viking Berserker!

    • Stick to the original Norse setting (Viking)
    • These warriors are not like normal Norse swordsmen, they are incredibly terrifying and their appearance alone should be horrific enough to scare away any opponents!
    • You are also allowed to design a female berserker!

    Daynamic scene, I like the rotational moment with the centre in his head. I think you should go further with that.

    Good faces. I think the male has more berserker power but a female berserker is a nice take.
