This was made as a graduation project at our animation school, located in Japan (that's the reason behind all those weird letters ..no not the runes). Taking inspiration from my home country Sweden, I built an idea around using Vikings as a theme.
Then teaming up with my classmate Matheus (who's from Brazil) we aimed for a 90's anime opening-like animation, stuffing in all sorts of scenes we thought would be fun to animate.

All the frames were done using pen and paper, scanning it and then tidy it up and paint it in a software called "Retas Studio"(which is what they do at most Japanese animation studios). A really tedious process that I wouldn't recommend to anyone unless you have a lot of people backing you up.

Also we got help from our schools sound class, making our team quite the international one, with the sound guys being from Thailand, China and Japan!

If you guys ever want a real "Vikings" series or even if you hated it, be sure to let me know! Thanks for watching!

Edit: Thank you guys for the daily 4th! That's a huge milestone for me! ^^

Skogur responds:

Nothing that I wanted to upload really, only smaller things I wouldn't want to show anyone today.

Ha this is quite nice dude, like all the different segments which make this really look like an intro of a series

Skogur responds:

Thanks man! That was the idea, I'm glad you got that impression from it!


It is cute and funny

Really like what you done here! I would watch such a series... Btw who is the dark figure behind the cast in the final frame?

Skogur responds:

Thank you! ^^
That was a take on Anime openings that finishes off with a freeze frame of the whole cast, due to the lack of characters I made this evil-mastermind-looking guy as a joke.
