A commission piece for the most awesome and wonderful , with her character Norbert!
One evening, when Norbert had to analyze one specific mystical artifacts - a most tedious and tiresomely boring process, Norbert might add - he started to kill time by skimming through some ancient history. Little did he know that his shelfdwelling friends would have some intriguing secrets to tell about this object.
There are soooooo many layers that I don't even know... x3
Just love this character!^^ It was so much fun to make this piece!
What I wanted to do was pay tribute to all the artists who have inspired me. Grew up loving Frank Frazetta, then the original Heavy Metal Movie. Can't forget Boris Vallejo. Then there are the multitude of 80's adventure movies and their somewhat cheesy poster art. Writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs and his tales of Barsoom and Robert E. Howard's worlds of adventure painted my imagination.
