    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..

    Awesome! Must resist temptation to draw mecha valkyries.

    Dammit, folded - sure I can work the concept in properly so here's a few quick thumbs.

    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.

    Great round folks!

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

    Edit: Here's the pencil sketch I'm going to work from:
    CHOW #71 - VOTING - 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...

    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!

    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 - VOTING - 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.
    Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possiblity of cheating. it is either good or bad. ~ Dali

    Here's mine. I went for a sort of zombie barbarian valkyrie heh.
    It initially was in colour, but when I set it to grayscale for a value check, I liked the B/W much better.

    hmm isn't there an attachment option when you edit your post?...I hope photobucket won't delete this

    Chow #71: Wip

    Okay, here's my initial sketch.

    The idea is that she is "fallen" in the sense that she has too much compassion for the mortals she is supposed to judge impartially.

    I hope to include a lot of "wing" details in the armor in the finished piece, as well as really work on her expression (she's supposed to be singing a lament.) Since I had been doing wolf and moon studies for last weeks CHOW, I decided to include her mount, a white wolf. Carrion birds fly in the distance.

    Started painting tonight. Here's a detail of the face:

    CHOW #71 - VOTING - Guest Bumskee, Topic:fallen valkyrie

    Okay, this is as final as I'm going to get for now. Wish I had more time to really work it. SIGH. Gotta learn to work faster, but this is my first CHOW, my first finished digital painting and my first time working with the Intuos tablet and damn it I was gonna get something done!
