The Valkyria by Valkyrie-Girl The Valkyria by Valkyrie-Girl
And then they happened.


We were watching Thor this evening and I suddenly realized that I have not come up with any valkyrie ponies. What’s up with that!?! I mean, my name is Valkyrie Girl after all. What have I been doing with myself this whole time I’ve been a part of the pony fandom? So I went ahead and fixed that problem. Don’t ask me if/how they fit into anything ‘cause I haven’t gotten that far.


It should be noted that they are not in fact alicorns. Those horns are a part of their helmets. They are for stabbing. Or summoning lightning….or something.

Can i offer some ideas? Since you got Norse Mythology Valkyries as Pegasi... can you try something like Proteus the Greek Shapeshifter ((If you want me to provide links it's kewl)) as a changeling? Just saying... It would be truly awesome if you would try something like that! If i am not already betrayed by my previous statements i am from Greece a huge mythology geek. Sorry...

On another note do you do comissions?

I have actually given a tentative poke at Greek mythology and ponies. I've done a Medusa pony (if you look back far enough in my gallery) as well as the harpy ponies that appeared in last years Artist Training Grounds. However I don't know that I'd do anything more along those lines just now. I'm rather focused on my Valkyrie ponies as Norse mythology is a passion of mine. And yes I do take commissions.

Kewl... anyways just thinking that Metis and Proteus would make two very awesome changelings! If you know their stories and look up the meaning of their names they fit... A LOT!

Wandmaker, really written wandbearers, are beings who have mastered the craft of creating wands of the three categories: pendulus the jack of all trades, Tappat the specialist, and Forever the immotality granter, the strongest of them all. A wand can only be used by its creator or it will be damaged. Unicorns are born with a natural pendulus on their heads. Or is it a Tappat? Twi of course, has a pendulus. Alicorns probubly have forevers.

maybe they could have wolves pets.
 The valkyrie are wolves riders, at least that's what I read in wikipedia.

They have big dogs for pets. Wolves fit into their mythos in another way.

Sort of not really at all. The Valkyrie ponies are really just loosely inspired by traditional Valkyrie.

They look fearsome! I always love when artists make pegasus wings all pointy and detailed. It looks so cool!
I love their outfits as well!

Thank you! I kind of modeled their wings after Celestia's because 1) the Valkyria are bigger than normal ponies so they get bigger wings and 2) Celestia's wings are pretty and I like them a lot.

Very interesting concept. The helmet/mask element of the armor seems very unique as it isn't often one finds pony-related designs that obscure the eyes.

Now that I think about it, you make a very good point. I guess it must be because the eyes are such a big part of what makes ponies cute and likable.

Let whoever wears this lightning rod helmet, if they be worthy, possess the power of, let's say... a lightning bolt!

I am as surprised as you, to know these are your first valkyrie ponies. I like the wings on the front hooves.

And no they aren't alicorns,the wings and horns on the helmets are purely ornamental.Their master is an alicorn however.
