Freaking Giant Zombie Vikings!

reminder

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!

Yes the ol’ reverse humpty dumpty maneuver! Sit on the wall and break the hell out of anyone else already there! That is some great intensely bloated belly btw and such great weee lil arms!!!

Now it could be countless hours of playing the, atrocious, Sega CD, version of the legendary Dragon’s Lair in my youth, but I cant help but look at this pic with apprehension…. wondering where the hell that cursed glowing arrow is going to pop up! Also I bet a bunch of these guys marching would make a funny “hut hut hut” sound!

You know if i was like 80 feet tall and looking for a fun night… I gotta say this crew looks like they have potential! Sure they’re undead and loaded with weapons… but how can anything with such teeny lil feet be all bad? And that one in back is most definitely wearing a modified spaghetti pot!

Her husband felt awkward standing outside in front of the neighbors in his tattered viking attire… but he had to admit the role play had made for an interesting change of pace to their now mostly mundane small town life!

I can do erotic too! And Cate apologies, but I stole your tiny feet!

Interesting on two fronts! First that new dude is kicking a lot of your asses in quantity of beasts drawn! And second that this draugr, in his heart, obviously, disagrees with Conan when it comes to what’s best in life! Plus that chubby little Nerf face ain’t hurting my eyes!

You know at first I was like “hey, savagely handsome viking, that looks a lil like Sean” but the more you look, the more it seems possible that this is merely a wookie in a lil, masquerade style, person mask! Regardless we can all agree he has a tiny, tiny mouth!

Man! Look at the eye connection with that lil terrified viking on the bottom right! That my friends is what we call an emotional connection with the scene… And I kinda love that the Draugr has the expression a dog wears when it finds a baby bird… he may not kill it, but odds are he’s putting his face really, really close to it!
