I always found this drawing (‘Fattigmannen‘ by Theodor Kittelsen, 1894-95 ) very evocative and inspiring, so today I decided to create a stylised photorealistic version of it. This is also the cover art of ‘Hvis lyset tar oss’, one of the best well known black metal albums. For the dead pauper I went into Skyrim and console killed poor Filnjar, the blacksmith from Shor’s Stone, then took a screenshot.
P.S. I do not endorse Varg’s extreme views.
