Realm Travel Door Sequence

One of the many challenges associated with the Realm Travel Room was visualizing the door activation sequence.
The energy from the tree would be channeled through a realm crystal that would then amplify the beam on the door. These are some exploration images I did to help address some of those questions.

Making the images which outlined this process could not have been possible without close collaboration between me and my partner in crime Kevin Quinn. Check out all of his amazing contributions on the Realm Travel Room as well as the rest of the game here: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/GB8bB

The design uses a lot of the character, environment and mythological elements from Helheim in order to draw a connection with the realm. This is done in hopes of providing the player with additional context and giving them more insight into the realm before they visit the realms.
