Rampaging Titan by NicolasRGiacondino Rampaging Titan by NicolasRGiacondino
Hello my dear watchers and watcherettes,

It's certainly been a while and I've been quite busy with all kinds of deadlines on various projects/commissions/etc. that I can't avoid, nor show you just yet. However, some of those projects I can publiscly display, or at least some of the artwork I've done for them, such as this one right here.

Rampaging Titan is a tabletop game designed by a long-time client and associate of mine, focusing on a struggle between Vikings and menacing Gaints, hence the title.
The challenge here was to make the vikings as historically accurate as possible, thus I had to forget about horned helmets and other such fantastic decorations we usually see in depictions of the nordic folk nowadays. It was a challenge of course, but one I gladly welcomed, because I don't usually get to do much historical stuff. The Giants came a little easier though and I hope you agree that the end result between the referenced side of the art and my style merged rather seamlessly.

This image is meant to be a promotional illustration for the launching of the game's Kickstarter project of which I'll keep you duly up to date.

I hope I can post more soon and that you enjoy this one!

Great Illustration(!), but I don't see how it's historical correct.

You're the only reason I actually come check deviantart every once in a while. I miss your freaking amazing stuff all the damn time!

This is great. You got the Nordic feel, and the sense of the warriors charging right into a fight that we can't see, only imagine. You used the greys for the armour nicely.

Excellent vikings :D

Una gran ilustracion, a favoritas de cabeza. A pesar de no hacer cascos astados, los vikingos eran famosos por sus yelmos con visores ornamentados, quizas para el tio que va en cabeza habria sido un foco interesante, un detalle mas.

As a Scandinavian, I prefer historically correct vikings over the horned-helmeted Hollywood ones.

I am looking forward to this. Vikings vs. Frost Giants. Awesome.

I actually think the historically correct Vikings look cooler then the cliched ones. So a very good job, sir. :)
