Viking Couple by humon Viking Couple by humon
For the uncensored version, go here [link]

Some sketches of the Viking couple again.
About the bottom picture: Vikings were oddly enough the cleanest people in Europe at the time. Not only did they wash their entire bodies once a week, they washed their hands and faces every day, which other Europeans thought was incredibly strange. The Vikings had been to the Middle East and had learned cleanness from the people there, though the Middle Easterners still thought they were a tad too dirty. XD

This is adorable! The Vikings may also pick up bathing habits from the New World too.

i know there is a chance that you might never read this ,but i gotta say that im a big fan of all of your artwork , but this particular piece realy gives me a certain ... i dont know faith i guess, i mean in a society such as my own (i live in mexico ) it is almost expected from the male figure to be cheating alcholic wife beater for the sake of " thats how a man does it " i dont know if i can get my idea trough but , seeing a couple having both the erotical part of the relationship as well as the afective part makes me feel ... liberated i guess , its kind of hard to explain but i value loyalty towards and from my partner and this work in particular seems to pinpoint that sort of ideal relationship we all could strive for you know anyway im taking enough of your time, thanks for the great work may the gods walk with you.

This is adorable, and actually Ireland was known for the same cleanliness, after the man had finished his work for the day, he would have a bath before dinner; and his wife or children would comb his hair. Then the wife and children would bathe, and having immaculate hair was seen as someone who was doing well, they also had to wash their hands before eating also.

I really like the lady Viking's dress. I've never seen something like that from any of the medieval costume sites I visit. They have Saxon dresses but they are so bland. If I'm gonna be a Viking I want to be a lady in a powerful position, which means fancier outfit!

For couples, it is an intimate moment between them to wash each other.
