Valkyrie by JesusCareaga Valkyrie by JesusCareaga
Edit Dec. 2012: While I liked the concept I wasn't too happy with how the original image looked. I thought the picture was flat and the the lighting was way off. So here is my attempt to fix it. I also changed and improved the wings. Once again, Happy Holidays!

See the old vs new version here [link]

Loosely based on the Valkyries from Norse mythology. Happy Holidays :D

Congratulations. Really great art. Topics touched my imagination. What you showed is so ambiguous that it allows the observer to create their own interpretations.

I love the entire work... the soft impression into the background, I didn't know that northern legends had dreamcatchers like the 1st Nations of North America... if you didn't put it there with the title and description I was
about to call it Mother Earth or Gaia

Thank you, I'm really glad you liked :dance: I also drew inspiration from paintings of Native Americans(mainly in the colors and landscapes used in those paintings) and that's why I included the dreamcatcher. So I'm not sure if they had those in european cultures but I thought it fit the theme well :D

ow, thanks for the explanation, I like to know these things, I adore ancient Myths from all over the world, but my heart goes for the Celts (where I must say I include the Vikings) and the 1st Nations
or Native Americans
It's a wonderful piece, and be visinting your gallery more often
