Ringerike Porcupine



Commission for client :iconedge-chan:.

Edge wanted a porcupine design that would later translate into a pendant. However, her request was for an old Scandinavian style.
Of the 6 eras that were distinct in the art of the Viking era, one of the least popular celebrated is the Ringerike style; even thought the second last era, it was overshadowed by the Urnes era, immediately succeeding it [and the Oseberg Era- the first era-, for it's rare, scarcity amount of artifact in comparison].

I decided to select this style since the content- a porcupine- could benefit visually from the characteristic "horns" that embellish most of the beastly figures.
Since the execution of the design is very plain [in the sense that it was going to be a simple vector of the creation of the pendant], I decided to embellish it at least for the client. I made it look like one of my many illustration for University, when documenting the figures.

They redesigned the images by the way, if you haven't seen it yourself yet…

Funny how the rest were plagiarised too, heh. Good that they owned up to the mistake.
