Kara the Valkyrie

Decided to do a late-night sketch, so here is my day 4 Inktober sketch a day early (since I already posted day 3 earlier today). And heck, I may give up numbering my Inktober sketches since I don't expect to keep it to one a day, and I expect to miss a few days as well. :/ 

Anyway, here is another "Valkyrja" (Valkyrie) picture. I've only done one polished pic (well, two including my Valentines day poster), but I'd been kinda hoping to create a series, so maybe I'll polish this up in photoshop eventually and turn it into a poster/tshirt for my redbubble store. This one is Kara, a valkyrie name associated with the (apparently eternally reborn) lovers of the Helgi material. I decided to give her a smoking black sword because I can think of at least one other eternally reborn champion with a kickass demonic black sword (Elric, I'm looking at you), and it just seems like the sort of thing that a kickass valkyrie would have. Kara is also the name given to the valkyrie-type figure that falls for the magical smith (inspired by Volund) in Michael Scott Rohan's Winter of the World series, one of my all-time favorite fantasy trilogies from my childhood/young adulthood, so I confess I'm already starting to feel sentimental about this pic... Ah, the power in a name.
