I was invited to take part in the Poster Posse's #Hate2Wait art project, creating artwork for our most anticipated media. I chose the game God of War Ragnarok for my subject. The follow up to 2018's God of War, one of my all time favourite games.
For the design I wanted to focus primarily on Kratos and his son Atreus, the real core of the games. Around them is an ornate and detailed Norse style frame which I designed.

Initial sketch design for the frame element. On the right you can see an example of Kratos' iconic weapons - the Blades of Chaos. I looked to subtly incorporate this into the design of the frame in the upper corners, flowing naturally back into the arch of the frame itself.
