Valkyrie



Here is my illustration "Valkyrie". Valkyries are often painted very warrior-like, I wanted a more romantic (!) and dreamlike feeling. "Valkyrie" - illustration of the Nordic Mythology figure Valkyrien. Valkyries were goddesses who went down to Earth to identify the soldiers who were to fall and then come to Odin's castle Valhalla. The soldiers had to fight for Odin in the last battle of Ragnarok. Colored pencils
