Valkyrie Trade wip by Ryujisama Valkyrie Trade wip by Ryujisama
So, here's the skinny on why I've been inactive for about a bit over a week now:

I WAS SICK! :sick:

aaaaand I still had to go to train for my new job.

But I didn't want things to go out for too long without me submitting something. So, here's a wip of an art trade I got going on with :iconji-li:. Basically, designing her new Valkyrie OC. I only had a silhouette to go with, so I kinda, sorta, started from scratch.... ^^; Anyway, I'll add colors and such later *sniff*.

Laterz.

Thanks, interesting take on her. Can't wait to see it done. <3 
Was actually designing her in a way that she was probably more robotic and with less armor, but this is nice too. 
Don't forget her blade though. Like a double bladed spear or such. 

I've been pretty overwhelmed with phone calls and such everyday lately, but hopefully can find some calm time to get back into some serious drawing soon and can do your art trade then. To be honest, might not be able to until I can hit some financial stability though. Life is too hectic right now. 

Hope you get better soon btw. Been sick also lately. :< I can't wait for spring.

Glad you approve (somewhat, lol). I kinda designed the way she looks now based around her hair, and I just went from there.

I noticed the look of her mask, and thought about incorporating it into the design (which I think I might now), but I kinda wanted to create a mix of functionality and fashion. I'm not the best when it came to designing armor, so I came up with this look for her.  When I have time, I can create an alternate version, if you wish. In the meantime, I'm in no rush as far as trades go. I mainly use them as an excuse to find some inspiration for something to draw, so just let me know when you get to finishing yours. I'm in no hurry to see it.

Also, I'll be sure to add her weapon before I finish. :)

Of course <3 It's still a nice character design you have going on. <3
Ah I see and no problem. I don't mind. Might do a full body sketch later so it'd be easier to know what I had in mind when I designed her thumbnail sketch. Are you able to see the details of the shading? I know on some screens it almost appears all too dark while on some it's clearly visible the details in the outfit. It's actually more soft outfit vs armor. But I don't mind this one either. It's interesting. ;D Maybe it can be her sister. Hehe. 
I'm trying to force myself to draw some now and then, really shaky on the tablet lately since I'm so out of shape. It'll take a couple studies before I can even get back to drawing like I used to. Although, part of the shaky may be cause I've been pretty sick lately.  But I'll definitely post it and let you know when I get to it. And I understand, I find more inspiration in drawing for others than for myself so I know how it is. 

And yay thanks. <3 Hehe.
