Come child, come to the arms of the Valkyrie by MasterOfMetalMusic Come child, come to the arms of the Valkyrie by MasterOfMetalMusic
A Nordic angel, a Valkyrie!
These beautiful winged women flew over the battlefield like voltures. Looking for dying heroes, who they would lift up into the skies, and take to Valhalla.

Many myths and legends exist about these angels of death, and they are normally potrayed with a winged helmet and with a spear, but I like this way better

The Runes on het axe are Sowulo and Dagaz,
Sowulo stands for success, goals achieved and honor.
Dagaz stands for breakthrough, awakening and awareness.

Combinding those two, the meaning is something that resembles going to Valhalla, which is exactly what the Valkyrie helped the fallen warriors to do.


this is the first time I (more or less) succesfully drew a cloudy sky :)



I used my Wacom Intuos 4, and a rune translator online. Everything else is my own. :)

Vanaf het moment dat ik een potlood kon vasthouden. :XD: Ik ben serieus begonnen met tekenen toen ik 16/17 was.

hmm, bij mij eigelijk precies het zelfde, ook altijd al, en ook echt serieus sinds een jaar (toen was ik 16 :P )
ik ben toegelten tot de HKU gisteren, dus daar komen zeker nog vele jaren van tekenen bij :D

It says SM on the axe.
Is it referring to something?
