Translation:  Behold!  The Viking!

I shall name you Eindridi.

My latest commission was for a Minnesota Vikings fan.  How could I turn down the chance to mash-up a real Viking with a football player?

So, if you know anything about me, you know that I do not have deep knowledge of sports.  AT ALL.  Those genes were given to my brother, R2BP, who bleeds Eagle Green.  I had to research how a football is constructed and the designs of the jersey. Fitting his last name on the jersey was a challenge too.  I’m thankful his last name wasn’t Jingleheimerschmidt.

I did enjoy creating the actual Viking and his sword.  I reinforced the sword with some copper wire to keep it strong, since it protrudes so far from the base.

Thanks for checking it out.
