Skeggiold by GENZOMAN Skeggiold by GENZOMAN
Hi there guys!, here goes another pic I done (along with a tutorial) for the book d'artiste: Character Design, for Ballistic Publishing. This time here goes a nordic myth, one of the Valkyries. This was done in a livestream long time ago, maybe you where there...Hope you like it! :)

Bamboo/PSCS3/8hours or so/Music:Respect the Wind - Eddie & Alex Van Halen
[link]

LETS WIKIATTACK!

Skeggiold, Skeggold, Skeggöld or Skeggjöld, is one of the less known Valkyries, the female warriors and psychopomp who guide the souls of the people died in battle to the afterlife, to odin´s sacred hall, The Valhalla. Her name means "axe age" or "big Axe", because of that, its supposed she was somekind of axe or halberd master, a specialist on this kind of weapon, the word is also used to describe the time of war before the ragnarök. She is mentioned in some poetic eddas, like the Grimnismal or the Nafnabulur, along with others Valkyries like Hrund, Geirdriful, Randgríðr and Þrúðr, as soldiers at Odin´s service.

I thought Fimbulwinter was the last 3 seasons before Ragnarok?

What caught my attention was that she was named "Ax Age" which is also an alternate name to one of the 3 winters of Fimbul which preceeds Ragnarok (I believe it's Frost Age, Ax Age and Wolf Age but don't source me lol). I'm curious though is that wolf portrayed here supposed to be Fenrir or Garm?

I'm assuming that since Garm is most known to have like 4 eyes and stuff, along with the fact the Wolf was chains that I'm guessing it's Fenrir. And if those are the three ages then they are all depicted here: Snow and Ice (Frost Age), Miss Ax Age herself (Ax Age), and Fenrir (Wolf Age).

Wow, en verdad es una de las mejores valkyries que he visto, principalmente por el enorme lobo que lleva como mascota ya que, por lo que he leído, ellas en realidad montaban lobos y no caballos voladores, y en verdad éste lobo es increible. Buena idea la del hacha gigante.
