The Immortal Valkyrie

So there I was pigging out on Halloween candy and watching the Thor: Ragnarok previews for the kajillionth time when I started to wonder if the Valkyrie are immortal beings, then why is it we only really ever see them in Asgardian pseudo-barbaric attire? There’s something not quite right about that. But we can fix that!

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to create a Valkyrie, a timeless Chooser of the Slain, depicted in trendy fashion from any era of recorded human history. She can be a senator from Ancient Rome; a 1920s flapper; a 17th century musketeer; a menacing pirate captain; a shogun from feudal Japan; a 1960s Woodstocker; a 1980s corporate raider; a saloon matron from the Wild Wild West; a cyborg from a futuristic police state... etc., etc., etc. Really, the possibilities are endless. Be as creative as you like. The only requirement is that your entry must have the sword Dragonfang depicted.

The deadline for this contest is November 22ndSaturday, December 2nd.

@egod @shatterstar Kindly pin this thread. Thanks!

Created an Ancient Greek Valkyrie. Originally I had done a Roman warrior themed one, but completely forgot about the Dragonfang so I drew this instead.

@egod: I'm willing to extend it through the long Thanksgiving weekend, if necessary. No worries.

Let's do it. The contest will be extended until Saturday, December 2nd. What the heck, I might even come up with something myself between now and then, albeit, not as an eligible entry for voting. Happy Thanksgiving, folks!

Straight out of the EXTREME 90's comes the Grunge Valkyrie. Who, it is said, would choose the souls of the Fallen warriors killed in the mosh pits of bad alternative rock bands. Her noble quest went on for years until one night at a Jackal concert her burden of souls to escort was too much to bear, too many fallen moshers to escort. And she decided instead to just chill and eat some Doritos Double Blasted nacho chips.

@ZZoMBiE13: thanks man. I struggled with my tablet. It kept restarting removing all the work I had done so I kind of rushed it a bit to get it finished.

@dragonspine: Thanks. Had some new design idea's mid-drawing, but alas, it is difficult to rectify when you're using a pen. It's Feudal Japan era btw, was wondering if I should have included the top half of the samurai armour somewhere.

Yep, I figured by the wajari that she was a samurai or ronin from feudal Nihon. You have time to add the rest of the armor if you want, but it looks good as is.
