As much as I love the Secret of Kells, I was not a big fan of how they showed the Vikings as inhuman monsters since they (despite their brutality) were an advanced people during the Dark Ages with powerful seafaring ships and unbreakable courage in battle. Plus, as much as we personify them as wearing horned helmets, they never did because they were smart enough to know the drawback of those helmets (they can be easily pulled off by their opponent). They mostly wore chainmail and smooth helmets with noseguards

I've just finished watching the Secret of Kells earlier tonight. It was a beautiful movie. It's amazing that you have worked on it! Good job! The scene when the monastery is invaded by the vikings made me cry. Trully a masterpiece.

I remember that seeing the movie I found curious to see a single dude credited distinctly for designing the vikings.

Dammit I loved these they were scary as hell! I also honestly think that the baddies in the Spirit Realm in Zelda: Skyward Sword were somehow based on these, they really are similar in appearance. Anyhow great job!
