Everything You Should Need to Know to Draw a Draugr!

Freaking Giant Zombie Vikings!


So we all know basically what zombies are. They’re soft, drippy and smelly undead beasts with an unending hunger for brains. But generally they’re slow, can’t grow to enormous size on a whim and don’t wield swords with the grace of a panther and the raw fury of a charging bear. Nope, that’s sorta what makes Draugrs special!

Here’s what we’re working with

  • Undead warriors clad in some sort of tattered viking-ish attire
  • They are gifted with a magical ability to fight like the dickens!
  • Can grow to enormous size on a whim
  • Often utilize said enormous size to simply squash or eat their opponents whole
  • Can drive people and livestock mad with just their presence!

So that’s what you’ve got! If you wanna draw a Dead Men of Dunkirk style battle, or just a giant but lithe zombie viking skipping through an icelandic mud flat, feel free. Just have fun and don’t take it too seriously (unless that’s how you have fun). Anyways, please submit your drawing by Midnight, Friday the 10th! And as always, winner gets a shirt!

Judgement Is Complete

Our Winning Draugr DrawingThe Judge’s Council has convened and verdict given! Here’s how judgement for the Draugr played out!

Judge Sneurat
#3 Cate really nailed it this time. She’s a super talented artist, but i love the simplicity of her drawing this week. Are the skeletons high fiving? +10 for tiny toe bones.

Judge Ken
I’m with sneu on this one…#3 has a sweet classic look about it. Love those little vertebra and the reserved coloring!

Judge Cody
#2 made me watch Dragon’s Lair videos for like 20 minutes straight and brought me back to the good ole days. Winner!

Judge Mona
#8 – my vote goes to Sean. A Viking Zombie giant popping up over the horizon to manhandle regular sized Vikings like they’re its play things for the win!

Judge Me
You know… what’s drawing beasts about if you can’t draw yourself and your best friend as giant zombie vikings, burninating a village, holding hands as you delicately walk on your tiny deerlike feet, smiling like you don’t have cheeks? I chose you #3!

Disagree if you must but know that judgement is law and to the winner a shirt will go…. Thanks to drawers and judges alike. And even though the contest is done we’ll always welcome new Draugr drawings for the archives! So draw on, and remember, 25 beasts drawn earns you a shirt!
