Brunhilda the Barbarian by JohnRaptor Brunhilda the Barbarian by JohnRaptor
Brunhilda the Barbarian, scourge of the northern shores, an original character inspired by partly by Red Sonja, one of my favorite comic book characters, and partly by Hellga a.k.a. Robin Coleman, one of the American Gladiators from that show's latest incarnation.

The guy on the left with the axe is her second in command Johan the Small (but don't let the name fool you. He's actually quite big).

Ink & digital (Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator)
11x14 on bristol board

Thanks to :icondevilishlysweetplus: a.k.a. :iconstock-dsp: for modeling for this.

This is a great example a woman who has the body that goes along with the ability kicking ass! I love how she is still pretty and sexy with a large from! Totally proving the comic ideal wrong. :)

Thanks! It's common to see male vikings and other medieval warriors portrayed as hefty folks, but you don't often see women warriors shown that way (and you should!).

Wow, that is NOT something you want to see pounding up the stairs of your castle. Kick ass raider you've got there.
