So, the recent God of War game and it's visuals inspired me to make a new personal portfolio project to help me keep practicing character design. I couldn't do anybody else but Atreus, this time as an adult.
I basically tried to balance, at first, greek and norse/celtic elements in his costume design, and then I decided to go for more norse.
Also made it overall in dark tones indicating some struggle that he might be going through.
There are elements that remind him of his mother and his father, Kratos.
Atreus has evolved in speed, strenght and as an archer. But now, he will receive a gift from the Gods: the Blades of Valhala. They are a strong God of War symbol, so I challenged myself to do a norse version of the blades.
There are also a few studies that I went through before the final concept illustration.
God of War Heritage is a fictional project and non-profitable.
