Hunter and the Dragon by arvalis Hunter and the Dragon by arvalis
First of all i spent way to much time on this picture. To explain the situation this is Sigurd, renamed as Runehardt, fighting his greatest foe, Fafnir the demon. Fafnir was once a man, though through his greed was turned into a dragon like monstrosity that kills without restrictions as there was no man capable of delivering the foul beast to the underworld. Runehardt was the bastard son of a god and a mortal woman giving him godlike strength and a near invincibility. With his sword, Balmung The Slayer of Evil, Runehardt was able to best the beast. Runehardt's achievement echoed throughout history as he was forever known as the Dragonslayer of Fafnir.

I love your shading and detail! You made Sigurd look very heroic and Fafnir very... ferocious (aaahh! Dragon's ready to KILL!!)!

I love this myth. Go Brynhild, Sigurd, and Norse mythology yeahh!

how did he get the name change. Love the art by the way, but I always thought he was just called Sigurd the Dragon Slayer. That and he had a kick ass helmet that made him invisible.
