Alkelmi _> Alchemy ! You have no idea how much I appreciate that you did an actual word! Too many people try to make the runes resemble english, and it frustrates me! 
And all the books too! Great job! 
This looks beautiful!

This might be weird, but i love how you draw hands! They're always a good size and the fingers are so long and elegant looking. It's one of my weak spots, so I always pay extra attention to the way other people draw hands! Anyways lovely picture!

Gotta love the "lol" book.
"Bestiarier"
"Svart magi" (choosing to read the rune of W as V to make it correct)
"Mjolnir"
"Kunsten av krig" (though "av" is a bit off here)
"lol"
"Asgard"
"Eliksirer"

And of course, the one he is reading... "Alk´mi"

All of this by heart. I had no life during school. Well done, sir/madam, well done. Certainly amusing.

Still not entirely sure it is old saxon, because the titles of the other books are pretty scandinavian, just written in the elder futhark.

Well then it's similar to Hungarian. :)

I totally forgot to comment here sorry. I just wanna say what I love how you made him a lot, and the atmosphere is fantastic. He fit in it like nothing else the sneaky bastard! Haha. He look a lot like himself. Its truly amazing. I get inspired to continue write his story just by looking at this. And nice with the norweigan runes! That is clever. Thank you so much for this! Sergei is the guy that mean most to me, actually (and sounding crazy maybe) he is more real than my OC, he has become alive through the years (he has been with me since I was about 10), and Im even starting to believe I didnt create him at all, he just decided to come and introduce himself. Because there┤s so much I still dont know about him, that he dont wanna tell me. I cant make up a story/personality for him, he must tell me who he is and he isnt the talkative guy. ^^ Im  very happy I could commission you with him, because he mean so much and you pulled it of making him. <333

Wonder what he is doing there, but it seems like it has something to do with rulebreaking, considering it is all dark in the library....

Sorry, couldt help to take a sneak peak at your comment. :giggle: Just wanted to say that if you wanna know what he is doing in the library you can read my trilogy that will be released in the future. First book is almost done to be pubished.  ;)

wow, that is great to hear :) yeah, true, I could have asked you directly... it's good you sneaked up XD
What will be the title of the book? If you want, you can also send me a pn with the datails ;) Will it be available in Europe or via amazon or anything comparable?
Publishing a book is usally a lot of hard work, isn't it? All the editing and other formal stuff...

ah, and reading the comments I realized the titles are obviously norwegian, which of course makes this piece even more awesome O.o

Just stumbled upon your gallery and it is great man! But now this made me curious after checking your commissions journal. Is this too a fully detailed commission? As in the most expensive ones you make? Because looking at this and the pics below I can see there is a huge gap beween them. Dont get me wrong man, this is great as well, its just not at all in the same legue as the rest. So then I either take it as this being a cheaper detailed pic, or is it the halfbody cheaper commission? Just wanna make clear if I would get something myself one day. :D Either way, great work, great gallery, keep rockin!

I happened to see this so I jump in here and answer. You get to decide how you would like it. If you want it with a lot of details/background just say so. :iconkibbitzer: is a really nice artist so you can discuss how you are thinking and everything. So its totally up to you in what "league" you want it to be.
