The Valkyrie Picture

Well...easy enough...for those who don't know, I love the nature of the myth of the Valkyries almost as much as I love Pirates and Thieves.

So I felt like drawing one...

Only, I decided to take a quasi-traditional approach.

Not a lot of fancy designer details and such, but a simple spear and wooden shield as well as a gussied up traditional styled Viking helmet.

Here's the thought that sort of formed the idea:
Upon the bloodstained earth, consumed by battle; those who are worthy will find themselves in the hands of the Valkyries and given the right to ascend the Great Rainbow Bridge -Bifrost- to the halls of Valhalla above. To be readied for their greatest challenge.

Hope y'all like it! Simple an' easy this one
