  • The Viking

    I haven't been active on this forum for awhile, but I just finished a project that I wanted to share. I found artwork online and tracked down the artist. Yannis Rubulias lives in Athens Greece and gave permission to use his artwork for the pattern. It took many hours to trace over the design and it ended up to be 350 pieces. It was certainly a challenge. Final size - 16.75 x 24.75.

              Jo, it is an amazing piece of work. Has the artist seen what you did with his work?

                Rolf, I have been sending him progress photos. He has been liking watching it come to life. His last comment was, "Awesome!". He is an artist who draws for graphic novels, and things like Dungeons & Dragons. Buxom beauties in scanty clothes, dragons, muscular warriors, that kind of thing. Several people have requested permission to use the pattern and he has agreed, as long as they are making it for personal use and not selling it. I think I have piqued his interest in doing more designs that could be made into patterns for intarsia.

                    That is a lot of detail. What did you use for the eyes? Just great work!

                      I must confess, I used acrylic paint for the eyes. Otherwise, the rest is the natural wood color, though some is spalted.
