ArtQuest Norse Challenge

Art by Jorge Rodrigues - Artstation

Calling all heroes! The theme of the First ArtQuest Challenge is Norse! – Far to the north, where Vikings, Ancient Gods and pagan rituals reside. We’re challenging artists to imagine tales from the North Lands, whether it be the Vikings raiders and their mighty longships, led by distinguished Jarl Chieftains or the ancient tales of the great Odin, a widely revered god, and the Nine Unique Realms. There is no shortage of history and legends to explore here.



In this Challenge you will either design your own or pick an existing concept that fits within the Norse theme!

  • Keyframe Concept Art

  • Character Design
