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
