Finally had some time yesterday to work on something not work related. Since God of War 3 is out today, I thought this was a suitable celebration. Technically the image should be flipped to accommodate Kratos’ (the dude in the white circle) red tattoos on the other arm. I decided to make the color scheme orange instead of red, since a lot of art based off the game features red and black. Orange seemed like something high energy which is something I wanted to emphasize over the violence and blood apparent in the game.
Top is final color work, bottom is the sketch on 8.5×11 paper.
