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 :]

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.

Wow, beautiful details, colouring, everything... really impressive work. But form the thumbnails I see that your hole gallery is like that...

I love it!
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.
