Vala - first sketch

sketching out a design for an all new Shieldmaiden.
Vala is the anglicized form of vǫlva or völva - meaning "wand carrier" or "carrier of a magic staff".
Another name for the Völva is fjölkunnig (plenty of knowing) indicating she knew seiðr, spá and galdr.

It basically means that she is a seer or witch.
I thought it would be interesting to have one of the shieldmaidens using a force that isn't an actual weapon...

*originally I had her holding a fireball in her raised hand.... need to figure out what to do with that....
