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 :]

absolutely love this one, wish it were a higher resolution so it could end up as my desktop for a year or so (probably longer knowing me.)

Have you ever seen The Legend of Korra? I can't help but see the death of Avatar Wan when I see this picture. Look it up on youtube if you don't know what I mean. This is some awesome work. I spent hours trying to find it after my harddrive crashed. It's been I while since I've been on the site.

I love the original original design for the valkyrie here, also i like the emotion this picture has to it, great work!

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"

Love it, someone found this pic as part of a video on youtube and wanted to know who the artist was. I found you :)

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.

This is beautiful, i love how subtle it is. It is also very sad, but very calming. great work xD
