WHEN I WAS A VIKING, MY FRIEND HE WAS THE RAVEN by Rick-Lilley WHEN I WAS A VIKING, MY FRIEND HE WAS THE RAVEN by Rick-Lilley
'When I Was A Viking
My Friend He Was The Raven'

This Digital Painting was inspired by the song 'The Raven'
And dedicated to [link]

The Stranglers
Album: The Raven [1979]

Not only does the Raven feature heavily in Norse mythology in relation to Odin (Raven-god), but the Raven was also used for navigation, A Raven will not cross any expanse of water if it could not see land.
The first reference to this was the discovery of Iceland.

References:
Figurehead of a Viking Longship, found at Oseberg.

Very good texture.  The raven looks believable with its feathers.  And the Clouds also look great in the background. :)

I thought it was a picture when I first saw it. It all looks so real.

Very well done!
