    OH.. i thought this would have been up but I guess Oblio is busy, and he runs the thing so I wanted his approval I guess.. But seeing how the suspense is killing everyone.. here's what I passed onto Oblio!!

    "fallen valkyrie" - a valkyrie that once served at Odin's side, she has been tainted by evil and banished to the underworld.

    requirements

    1. armour

    It's pretty open.. she no longer serves Odin but is more part of the underworld now.. enjoy!

    FOR REFERENCE ONLY!!! and inspiration..

    This reminds me of the Battle Angel CHOW, which probably got one of the best turnouts.

    Wouldn't be surprised if this one hits 5 pages. Another great topic, Min.

    Red face Fallen Valkyrie

    I am now painting this. I am enjoying all the entries. Very good work.

    Had to do the Mother's day thing so I didn't get to finish the painting, but will for my own learning purposes.

    Final update:
    CHOW #71 - Guest Bumskee, Topic:fallen valkyrie
    Great round folks!

    Another edit: Fresh wip, still clinking away:
    CHOW #71 - Guest Bumskee, Topic:fallen valkyrie

    Edit: Here's the pencil sketch I'm going to work from:
    CHOW #71 - Guest Bumskee, Topic:fallen valkyrie
    I was most impressed by the relationship Valkyries used to have with wolves and ravens that got lost in the later romantic depictions of them. I thought of the fallen Valkyrie as being an agent that may work against the Valkyries still in good standing. Instead of delivering fallen warriors to Valhalla maybe she would feed them to Loki's demon army or something. I'm going to try to show some mind vs. body conflict in her too. Her noble soul is trapped and forced to witness the rudeness her body has set out to do. It will work or I'll fall on my hind
    I'm hoping to have her wrapped up by tomorrow since the weekend is shot for me. We'll see.

    I'm in too, w.i.p. pending. This is a good excuse to start reading the Volsung Saga too...

    Min, I edited your third link so it shows the correct pic. (I don't know why it wouldn't work before.)
    And I also added a fourth link.

    The ONLY REQUIREMENT IS ARMOUR!! so wrap her in some armour of some sort... otherwise valkyries are FEMALE only apparently...
    but I think this is heaps more open than last round.. anything goes..

    and the little sentence after the topic is just a background story on this fictional character. and it's upto you how you design this. and if you are not sure what valkyrie is check the link provided, 5 minute read will give you an idea that valkyrie is from norse mythology, female who served odin.

    thanks emily!

    just to make sure it's clear, the brief is for a "mythological" treatment of valkyrie, right? i can see an armoured female as part of a squad called the Valkyries, in the service of an organization called O.D.I.N., as a viable "futuristic" interpretation of the theme (with some interesting options for being "fallen to the underworld"), but not if it's only historical/mythological.

    it's also kind of interesting how much of Norse mythology is pretty ambiguous about "good" and "evil," with some of the more infamous characters (like Loki) playing both sides, and some of the heroes engaging in some pretty sketchy behavior as well. it often seems that some of the conflicts among the Norse gods were more class warfare than a battle between good an evil.

    its worth mentioning that "originaly" valkyries were female spirits that devoured warriors on the battlefield.

    dont have a lot of time this week... out on business all next... so I thought I would at least take a stab at this... so to speak hehe... CC always welcome... nice to hear early on prior to getting bumped from a poll

    CHOW #71 - Guest Bumskee, Topic:fallen valkyrie
    The Valkyrie…deities who once sat beside Odin, to be sent out during battle and who’s purpose was to choose the most heroic of those who had died and to carry them off to Valhalla. Eventually they became indiscriminate in their killings… more than the rightful hero’s were taken.
    Now finding themselves cast out by Odin for doing “too good” of a job. Any and all that enter the battlefield are now their prey.
    Once beautiful…now crones, with flickering armor that can be seen flying about the battlefield, flashes of spear, splashes of blood… these would be the remnants of war now...Telltale signs of their further carnage. Leaving each man to wonder what his fate would be now in this early afterlife.
