View Full Version : Need references

01-27-2008, 06:44 AM
I'm planning a painting of a viking and what I need are some visual references on the clothing they wore, weapons and what not. Also facial facts (like did they really braid their beards?) .

I plan on making this a work in progress thread in Artist showcase.

I haven't found anything all that great on the internet but I do have some excellent books from Osprey publishing in their Elite Series, Men at Arms Series, and Warrior Series that pertain to the Vikings. They have excellent illustration refrence as well as reference material to how they lived and fought if you were in need for a story. I bought all of mine from Amazon.com. Hope it helps.
