satw - the nordics - ravens from the north by aldohyeah satw - the nordics - ravens from the north by aldohyeah
another satw fanart!

previously i made this: [link]

a picture of england, france, ireland, scotland, and wales of satw wearing their flag of the medieval age.

in that page someone commented and gave me the idea to make the nordic guys' version. i thought, i don't know, because as far as i know, the vikings haven't invented their flags in the viking age, but were flying raven banners instead.

but then.. meh, i'll just make it anyway. the ancient version of the nordic guys of satw.

from left to right:

iceland, norway, denmark, sweden, and finland.

because they haven't invented their flag, i used the colour of their modern flag in their shields. and because they were using raven banners, so the band is named the ravens from the north :D

unlike the medieval britain picture, this one is made without some particular research on the history. maybe someday i'll make another one after doing a research.. like, drawing iceland as gunnar hámundarson, the famous chieftain in brennu-njálssaga, or drawing norway as eric the red.. etc


anyway i hope you like it :)

i'm such an idiot for forgetting to credit that all "scandinavia and the world characters" belong to :iconhumon:

and also to credit :iconmistertotality: , the one who commented on my britain and france picture and actually gave me the idea to do this. thank you! :)


plus i must say thank you to gréta salóme and jónsi, iceland's representative for eurovision song contest 2012 with their song "never forget", or in icelandic version, "mundu eftir mér".... because i listened this song when i'm drawing this, i don't know how but it just helped a lot. :XD: magical, magical song.

This is just great! Nice incorporating their flags in their shields and keeping the character's style despite the change in historical setting!

No wonder would-be conqueres turned around before they reached Scandinavia! :D

... they did plenty of inbetween conquering though ;-)

Hey! You did it! I'm glad you did even if it wasn't researched and you had to improvise with their modern flags. This is great.

I love this picture! And Finland, has always been Finland.
I think you draw them quite according to their characters in SatW, especially for Norway because of the "animal connection" he has

......frankly i didn't realize that. in my mind it was just: vikings - oh, berserkers - and the decision that norway to become one is pretty random. i hope it's not the drama bear's pelt that coat is made of! :D

thank you! :)

I can't help but laugh at how Denmark's shield looks a little like a piece of candy. :XD:

This is just as nice as the other one if not more so! I am fascinated by Denmark's little braid! Iceland has one too, but for some reason it's not as fascinating. The shield designs look great and it's nice to know that even back then, Finland was a knife nut.
