THIS IS VIKING by Shikamaru-no-kage THIS IS VIKING by Shikamaru-no-kage
There is a little manipulation of the original Skyrim's wallpaper (a game that i think all of us are waiting for !!!). I did this because Vikings never had horns on their helm... Then now, he looks more like a TRUE viking !

I'm waiting for your comms ^_-

I know it is a myth, but actually it is not that pointless to wear helmets with horns. Vikings would have looked like devils for poor christians :D
Sry for bad english

It's a start. Babysteps - and which one is the most difficult and most important? The first! Thanks - I'm surprised that "viking-horns" are still a thing, today.

The problem is, people today wouldn't even recognize a Viking with a hornless helmet. So I just put the horns on when I draw fantasy Vikings or the Norse gods (because Norse gods are badass, and horned helmets are also badass, if somewhat impractical)

That's badass indeed ! In Skyrim it's ok but it's a shame that you can not pick up the draugr's helmet which have no horns... Obviously i have à PS3 so i can not mod my game !

Ahh, Draugr have to be the most badass and probably scariest of all Skyrim enemies. Every time you enter a barrow, you just keep asking "Is he alive?" and then, "Blaaarrr!" You can get the Helm of Yngol, but it still has horns.

Yes but among the horned helmets it is the coolest ! Just my opinion ! Anyway my scariest experience in Skyrim was always cause of damn ragnars ! It's a ridiculous ennemy but it surprised me a lot of time ^^' Same once with a giant spider in a room there was nothing and then i turned back... My heart stoped XD but it died first ^_-

I just hope you don't have arachnophobia like me... Every time I see webs on the walls I think "Oh dammit, not again...". But I don't remember ever killing any ragnars.

I m not afraid of spiders (in game) so it's ok ! Ragnars are just the rats of the game (i'm french so the name may be different...? ) you have certainly kill some of those ! Anyway i love this game ! I spend so much hours on it i can't make the count ! It was launched in 2011 and i keep on fighting in Skyrim !

I totally approve this, it became such a cliche... Vikings originally had different kind of helmets, but only after their conquers and wars with Gals and some other tribes, they started using those "Skyrim" helmets, but only in minority. Either way, they're bloody awesome :3

You're welcome ! But Skyrim is not claiming to be an historical game so they took inspiration from Viking but they made their own version of it... With horns again XD !

As much as I agree with your statement, I love Dovahkiin's helmet as the horns are facing down which makes him look more badass. But also, Viking's DRANK out of horns! Skl!

Thanks for your comm ^_- And for sure in Skyrim i love this horned helmet because it feets well with the background and the character ! And yes, with it he looks really BADASS ! Skl ! Some mead would be perfect ! ^_-
