Muspelheim Arena Ascent

A visual exploration of the Muspelheim Arenas in God of War. Here Kratos and Atreus would go through a gauntlet of trials in order to face even greater challenges waiting for them atop the volcanic path.

Muspelheim is the land ruled by Surtr, a powerful fire Jötunn. Surtr's realm is in constant chaos and change. I really wanted to capture movement and chaos so I leaned heavily on several visual elements that were constantly in motion. This included large billows of smoke, pouring lava and embers.
