  • Title: Those Who Bear the Fallen
  • Artist: Lady_Eldae
  • Description: In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (derived from Old Norse "valkyrja" meaning "chooser of the slain") is one of a host of female figures who decide which soldiers die in battle and which live. The valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors become einherjar. When the einherjar are not preparing for the events of Ragnarök, the valkyries bear them mead. Valkyries also appear as lovers of heroes and other mortals.

  • The steel and the white are very separate, which I like. I also find it interesting how the tone of the overhang, the eyes, and the skirt, sort of flow downwards smoothly. Well maybe that's just how I see it. Well done! biggrin 5/5

  • @ el eaus el: I really wanted something for her hands as well, but nothing I tried looked nice enough.
