OK... as I have more free time now, I'm going to take part in this event, too.
Here's my concept and a rough sketch of the basic action-shot I have in mind.
It'll be a Norm Warlord.

I like the energy of the action pose. It has a nice feel to it.

Here're some sketches of the head - showing different emotions - without and with some hair. I'm not really happy with the hair-result yet.
But I think I'll drop the shawl-idea I had before.

expressions are nice, good research! I'd Viking mats or cup Iroquois Indian, because the second sketch is really good.

OK... so I made some quick sketches for some hairstyles and put them onto the angry head and the feared head.
Please tell me which of all hairstyles you like best.

The long haired style from my concept is No. 4 and you could also vote for a bald version as No. 5.

I'd go with either 3, 4, or 5. I like 3 because I don't see dreads as much.

Stick with the long hair. Probably going to look the best in the dynamic pose you've got going already.

Thanks for the input omegamista and chris_solo.
Thank you Puckducker, I think you're right... in an action pose long hair would probably look much better than any short hair. I didn't think of that.

you have a good dynamic in your position, but work more smoothly, your line is too uptight, let your hand and your pencil live, your gesture continued drawing ...
and do not be afraid of mistakes because they sometimes show the right direction.

Hey good work so far, but I would try either making ur canvas bigger or making the warlord smaller, as the composition needs some more dynamic structure to really help sell the movement, at the moment with the guy in the middle and the background shapes all lead out of the picture its just not got the movement and looks a bit static ya know?

below is a link to some tips on composition, just friendly advice i not being a jerk.

hope that helps

Alex

Cool conceps. I like the raster hair, it's real nice. Can't wait to see the fire on that axe.
