Brunhilde Shield WIP

Looking at the pose it seemed that the shield was going to take up a fair bit of screen space, just by necessity, so I put some effort into coming up with an interesting design for it. The shape is based on a Germanic kind of shield and the design itself is based around the Norse goddess Freyja who is in charge of the Valkyries. I tried to do some Norse knotwork around the place but it's more celtic than Norse really. The boar at the top of the design is the giant boar she apparently rides. The shape down the bottom is the hammer of Thor. She also has a chariot drawn by cats but I couldn't find anywhere to incorporate that, cool though it would have been. I'm pretty sure the shader will change a fair bit as the whole thing comes along

Brunhilde WIP

I wanted to do another musically themed character and learn some female anatomy so I decided to have a go at an opera singer. This is based on the character of Brunhilde from Wagner's Ring of Nibelungen opera. I've started on the costume, she will be holding a sword and shield and be wearing some sort of breastplate or mail that I haven't decided on yet. Probably a winged helmet also.

Cellist WIP

Got some time off at the moment so I'm sinking some of it into this model.
There's quite a few things to fix on this but at least it might actually get finished
