I like your nature colorpalette. Pleasing to the eyes

Thanks you two! Glad you like it!
The pallet is nailed down but the shield emblem will have to be changed to something a touch more vikingėsh.
I might do that today actually.... Sounds like fun!

Update on the shields,
Inbetween my other work today I researched viking shields and made som initial ideas
I`d like to look at adding some weathering, some layering of materials and embossing stuff. Very much like the reference on the far right. 
Also the raven with the black and red has caught my eye.  I`d laos like to try and integrate some of this circeling viking patterns. 

Do you have a favorite shield? Let me know!

Thanks Oscar! I learned a lot from it!
Here`s another WIP. I`m looking suggestions on what to do with the treasure and the helmet. I`m not certain they are a cool enough thing to be found so any idea at all would be great!
If you guys want me to provide breakdowns for my works let me know. More than happy to share. I`ve started light with a comp sketch and a exploration concept that got revised to tell a better story.

Rough composition sketch

This rough piece is the first layout I did for the cave but I felt like the cinematics wasn`t there so I went back to pen and paper and worked out the primary shapes for what became the composition you see above this.

Made this one for fun. Trying some ideas. Will go back to the Viking theme now.

Hey this is looking great so far! Are you using matte painting/photobashing techniques for the character also? It's working well!

Hey there nylelevi, Thank you so much for checking out my thread !
I do indeed use Photobashing on just about anything where I feel like it can help me represent the materials better.
Not on the close up portrait study tho. That would defeat the point of practicing.

Glad to hear that it`s working!
I could do a breakdown of the process at some point
