Graphite drawing I did today of a guy who's either a Viking or descended from Vikings (haven't decided yet). The Elder Futhark (i.e. Old Norse) runes spell out the Swedish idiom "Old love never rusts." Hope you like it!

oh that hair, my god, how do you shade and make it look shiny, hgnghgnghgnghgngh

also the beads (?) are a nice addition ^^

wonder what the "old love" is referring to, tho

Haha, thank you :D I used a B3 pencil to shade the darkest part of the hair - gives you a lot more contrast and makes the hair look shiny.

I am not only Shining-Scribe but also Swedish-Scribe. I was never familiar with this idiom before but the poet in me is already in love. :heart:

I just took the internet's word that it was a Swedish idiom, so I could be totally wrong ^^; We all know how (un)reliable the internet can be, haha. But I do love the poetic nature of it!

I do as well! And I say I trust your judgment. :D
