Wow, he is so amazing..fierce and grungy but could definitely be a cover model.... I love all the depth of details on his armor and weapons and jewelry-thing.  I especially love the moorish architecture ...I visited southern Spain once including the Alhambra and had no idea such exotic architecture was there.  A really amazing artwork, thanks!

Thank you very much! :D
Yes, this building in the background is the mosque of Cordoba (8th-10th centuries), built a long time before the Alhambra palace (14th century).

I recently did another painting of the same character:  The Sea-king by JFoliveras

I recognized the striations on the arches, instantly knew it was Spain.

It is the mosque of Córdoba. Those arches are very common in Umayyad architecture both in Spain and North Africa.

Awesome. I just read a book called "Vikings in Russia" today. I might share a bit of your enthusiasm.
