Ride of the Valkyries by LivingHorus Ride of the Valkyries by LivingHorus
Inspired by Wagner's epic Der Ring des Nibelungen. I've tried to capture a sense of forward motion so wonderfully expressed by the music itself.

I thought Valkyries rode wolves to battle.

I don't know where I first heard it from, but I'm certain I did. I just glossed over the Wikipedia article and it looks like they rode horses in some myths and wolves in others.

Love the sense of motion in this. You've really captured the dual sense of ethereality and power engendered by teh Valkyrie.
