A lot of the inspiration for my initial sketches was taken from various artworks of Swedish Viking artwork I found online. Swedish Vikings were some of the best warriors for their time and often wore helmets with carvings or symbols. I wanted to create a logo that showed off the helmet and the beard that viking’s were notorious for.
I really enjoyed making the helmet for this logo. The shading, colors, and scarred gold details give it the rough viking look I was going for. From the Beard to the horns on the helmet I wanted to make everything look jagged with hard points to give the viewer the feeling that this Swedish Viking does not mess around.
