Heavily inspired by Celtic and Germanic "völva" (seeress/priestess/sorceress).
I took some creative liberties, as they often wore a lot and coloful clothing & furs and were decorated in valuable ornaments. They typically carried a wand/staff with them.
This rendition is more based on the völvas depicted in modern media. I personally really like the dark and eery aesthetic that is usually met with these characters.
With this piece I took a stab at stylized character art, which I haven't really done in a while and found it to be very very fun to work with!
