Seriously digging the freehand on the shield! Nice transitions and highlighting on the robe (love that desaturated green, too). As for improvement, I'd have taken the shadows for the hair a touch darker. Maybe down to Mahogany Brown. Also, the splint mail looks great, but more shadow on the top 2/3 of each splint might be a wee bit more dramatic.

 

Seriously though, I'll be stealing a lot of this for my attempt at her.

Thanks everyone, I am glad you have found inspiration in her.

I had to do something on the shield. It was driving me crazy to leave it plain. The green is actually Reaper's Moss triad highlighted up with Linen White. Thanks for the tip on the hair, I am using the same colors on my next one so that is a timely tip.

Agreed

 

 

 

Both of you can steal away!

 

 

Love it. I want to give this one a go but have yet to figure out how to fix the sword blade. Top notch work here. Thanks for sharing. 

 

The sword was a pain. It was really thin and flimsy so I shaved to much off when cleaning it up. I looked up old viking swords and saw that many were flat bladed so I did not need to shape it too much.

Great mini.  The red-green-brown combo is excellent. Natural and realistic.  Good to see a red-headed valkyrie for once.   Love the shield.  I'm going to have to try that pattern somewhere.  A broken blade might have been more dramatic!
