"The valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin, where the deceased warriors become einherjar" - wiki

Assignment for college. 5.30 am here...i am so dead tired. will update details later after i get my sleep.

----------------------------------------

Update

This piece took me by estimation, i think more than 50 hours. i had to work, rework, refine rework and rework on it so many times until i got the current outcome. I have reached the stage where i'm sooooo used to the pic that i don't know what is good and what is not anymore lol. I tried to push myself further than i usually do.

I don't think i'm quite there yet, but at least i gave a shot at trying out something like this. It's the best i can do for my current skills. Many thanks to my lecturer for his sound advices on this piece.

Also, coincidentally whilst i was at about 50%, i accidentally discovered a pic in recent ImagineFX issue that was quite similar to this, by Frank Frazetta....oh how godly is the work of the father of fantasy compared to this. orzlll

Nice art! I would like to ask for permission if it's okay to have your art be part of my list on my site? I am looking forward to feature some great gods and goddesses on my site. You can check out my site here, at the bottom. Of course I'll put a credit that this is your own art. :)
Hope you'll agree! \(^_^)/

Gah, one day I will reach this level of awesomeness! :angered: :) I will keep trying! :D

Doing one piece for 50 hours must be tiring, but I think the gods (the norse gods) themselves thank you for your dedication.
