Saxon Stories

This weekend I visited a good friend of mine in York and had a great time, the city is absolutely stunning. Definitely worth a visit!

On the train I started to re-read my favourite books - Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Stories. It seemed quite appropriate given that the first book is set in Northumbria (where York is now) and involves a fair share of Danes, Saxons, warriors and monks - of which I saw a fair few over the weekend ;)

So here's a redesign of one of my favourite characters from the series - Beocca, a Northumbrian, Saxon, priest who is a real sweetypie, if not a little unfortunate looking.

I'd like to do a few more of these, King Alfred and Uhtred especially, but we'll see what time allows....
