What's more refreshing after a crazy raid and pillage of a foreign kingdom than kicking back and drinking some brews with your Barbaric Drinking Buddies? Nothing.
This is just the most fun way I came up with to illustrate how refreshing a cold beer can be after a hard day at the office for the Illustration Friday topic of "Refresh".
I really just wanted an excuse to draw more cool looking Viking characters and jumped at this idea. I wrestled with the colors a bit more than usual. I wanted a kind of earth toned palette, but still wanted some bold, bright colors in there too, I think they're the best to use when using flat colors like I do. I think overall, it turned out pretty good and I struck a good balance of bold and earth colors.
