Valkyrie by OmeN2501 Valkyrie by OmeN2501
A piece I did for "Small is beautiful". Something different than my usual Sci-Fi pictures - I thought that some variety in my work is needed :] Light inspiration from end scenes of "300"

All done in Photoshop in about 25h

All crit is most welcome :]

Have you ever seen The Legend of Korra? I can't help but see the death of Avatar Wan when I see this picture. Look it up on youtube if you don't know what I mean. This is some awesome work. I spent hours trying to find it after my harddrive crashed. It's been I while since I've been on the site.

Just, wow, I don't know if it's just me viewing it or actual skill but there is a lot of emotion in this picture, on the warriors face and pose I can see both the agony of his wounds, a sadness of death but the joy of knowing he is being taken to a better place. The whole scene shows this too with everything around being drab, grey and horrible but the small valkyrie's light gives a small aura of hope to the picture when seen. It's an amazing piece that brings up conflicting emotions, masterfully done.

I always have to think about the song "Valkyries" by Blind Guardian:

"When the battle is lost
And the slain ones are chosen
Valkyries will guide us home"

Bravo sir! I really like that concept. The valkyrie don't need to be a poorly dressed hot chick with wings, instead you used something that looks more like a fading sprite.

I love it! Can I use it as cover photo for my team page on facebook? 

www.facebook.com/valkyriescr <- Thats the link... We are 5 girls from Costa Rican and we play League of Legends as a team... The page is recent so I dont have anything in the cover photo... Of course, I'll add your nickname and link page (if you want) in the img. Also, your name and link will be in the description of the photo... 

I really like this imgs and your conception of valkyries, will be an honor to have it in our page♥

His expression is so lifelike. What I've usually noticed in digital art is that... they seem to lose this 'warmth' that hand-drawn art is known for. And if you would zoom to his face, his eyes are wet with tears. But you don't even have to look that close to see his emotions. Beautiful work!

A refreshing take on the Norse legends. The tiny Valkyrie is beautiful, and her holding his finger in his hands is delicate, motherly and compassionate. Managing all that in such tiny detail you have done so expertly. Love it.
