This is somewhat of a tribute to history. Being such, and that my skills in Photoshop are rather lacking, I'm asking for some help from more experienced members.

The theme is a specific part of my heritage, so naturally it means quite a bit to me. The specific part, Norsemen. North men. Vikings. Call them what you will.

This is what I'm looking for.

The images (yes, plural) I would prefer to be paintings, like this one.

Please, nothing like re-enactments, guys with horns on their helmets, none of that cheesy crap. Resize and play with the image as you see fit, just do not make it cartoonish in any way.

The text is an old Viking prayer. If you have seen the movie The 13th Warrior, then you might remember this...

Lo, there do I see my father | Lo, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers| Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning| Lo, they do call to me| They bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla| Where the brave may live forever|

Each line should have it's own image, with the transition being a somewhat slow fade.

If you need help finding paintings, try searching by the following keywords:

Beowulf Valhalla Erik the Red Jomsviking Jomsborg Battle of Stamford Bridge

Thank you in advance for the work, I'm sure it will turn out great!

So, would that painting work? I don't have Photoshop, and I can't make a nice one, but I could probably mix something up using Paint.

You need Photoshop and it's cousin software for the look I'm going for. You know, multiple images that look somewhat like a slideshow...

I'm thinking about it...its a bit hard to find images, especially one as good as the one posted here.

I've got the idea in my head, but can't find the images to work it out. If I can find soem good ones, i'll put something together.

(plus Fritz requested one yesterday)

Thanks Phoenix and Lolly.

Wikipedia has some great images hosted there, I'll cruise around and look for some to help you guys along.
