I was tagged by :iconinkyrose: to answer a few questions about YNGVAR! :D These things are always fun, so here it goes:

Favourite toy growing up:

Yngvar was more interested in devices (boats, stuff with wheels, bows) rather than toys; he didn't fit in team and make-believe games (like playing “Vikings vs. Saxons”/Romans/whatever kids those days were playing). He did play dress-up by himself trying on his mother's ritual dress (she was a vǫlva/witch), so maybe that counts as a favourite plaything?

The playground bully (Playground equivalent) was:

A group of boys that kept ridiculing Yngvar for his aloof attitude and for looking girly.

Did your OC get their revenge? If so- how?

Yngvar's father encouraged (ordered) him to confront the bully and hit him. And hit him. And hit him. And he stopped a bit later than he should've. But at least he wasn't bullied again.

When your OC was young, what did they want to be when they grew up?

A mystic, like his mother.

What did your OC end up becoming when they grew up?

A famed warrior, the leader of a rebellion, and candidate to the crown of Norway.

What’s the best thing that’s happened to your OC?

His uncle took him on a journey around the (known) world.

What’s the worst thing that’s happened to your OC?

The deaths of his parents and his subsequent depression.

Does/did your OC have a love interest?/ Crush?/ The one that got away? If so- who?

All of Yngvar's attempts at bonding with someone are complicated, to say the least, and pretty undefinable... A proof: he has 3 sexual encounters – one in which he feels coerced, one where he gets violent, and one that he gets into because he wants to try to “be normal” (needless to say he doesn't enjoy any of them much). The person who might count as “the one that got away” is Eyolf Solhrafn (although I'm pretty sure neither Eyolf nor Yngvar are conscious this is the case XD). At the present, he might have what counts as a crush on Aidan (but it's not exactly a romantic and definitely not a sexual interest). Complicated, right?

If your OC was on death-row, what would their final meal be?

Lobster and wine.

Does your OC have any allergies?

Does the sun count? Yup, the sun is definitely something that can kill him.

What would their party trick be?

Can drink a lot without showing any sign of drunkenness. He doesn't do this, though, because he thinks it pointless.

What is your OC’s biggest achievement?

Setting up the resistance against King Olaf's brutal politics.

What is your OC’s biggest regret?

How things ended between him and Eyolf Solhrafn.

One more random fact:

He's a wee bit of a masochist.

I'm not tagging anyone, but I'll gladly read your quizzes :)

I am mainly a writer - working on a novel called "Sons of Disobedience" and a series of short-stories taking place in 10th century Norway - but my gallery shows more of my dabbling in drawing. Outside dA, I am a teacher and a PhD candidate in Old English literature. Passionate about history and mythology, I spend my time delving into my make-believe world which I then draw and write about, for my and your dark delectation! ^^

Autumn Rain
~ Autumn Rain ~

Here is the second prize for :iconakitku: 's wonderful winning entry for my contest. Her awesome character Chlodvig, the Meronvingian captain of a fierce band of mercenaries, is contemplating weather conditions the night before a battle ^^

I'm so happy with how this turned out, I need to work more using this technique :D I also had to throw in some red ink, because I love autumn and I realized I only have one other drawing depicting this season.

The soundtrack that helped with the inspiration:
Haggard - Upon Fallen Autumn Leaves
Media: ink pens, ink wash

More Chlodvig:
