Valkyrie

valk2

If there is one group of mythological women I admire more than the Amazons it would be the Valkyries. As I described to a friend recently, Valkyries are like angels, if angels weren’t lame. Guardians of the halls of Valhalla, guides of the spirits of those fallen in battle, and destined to fly into glorious combat come Ragnarök.

In this picture you can a see one of the winged warrior women descending to take on a fire-giant from the scorching realm of Muspelheim. I restarted this piece three times before I finally arrived at a composition that I liked. I am, however, very pleased that I stuck with it.

Timelapse video can be seen here on my Youtube channel.
