Yggdrasil by Rowye Yggdrasil by Rowye
Kind of following up on my last artwork, wanted to improve on my ability to photobash a tree. :P
This is a bit of a free interpretation of the Yggdrasil myth, as some of the worlds are said to have the tree in the middle, also the snake is supposed to be around Midgard and not around the whole tree but... I'll just call it artistic liberty and go with it. xD
For those unfamiliar with this viking myth:

Yggdrasil is an immense mythical tree that connects the nine worlds in Norse cosmology. It is center to the cosmos and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations.


This is an entry for the MYTHOLOGY NORSE 
contest by majesticARTS 


As usual, I've made a process animation you can watch here...

It's beautiful! I thought that the tree 3d, and then saw links to resources. I can imagine how much effort it took. The runes decided not to add? This is the coolest illustration of the Scandinavian myth, which I only saw. Very beautiful work!

I know you think that lmao and I saw your speed video... freakin' amazing... and you are amazing. You know how I feel about your incredible skill, vision, talent and work but the painting was brilliant too Roger... this was a hard as hell contest and I am just glad I wasn't a judge. I would have been stumped tbh.

I almost have no knowledge of Nordic mythology but you sound very interesting. Epic picture and work, I tell you that! Everything here, the smallest detail looks so very realistic and picturesquely! Amazing composition looks so flawless! I don't know how long it takes you to produce it but I always value those who spend the time to perfect their art instead to make something new every day which looks exactly like a work from
the day before...Keep it Roger, you're a fantastic artist! Clap

I am slowly getting faster, I think photobashing techniques are helping with that... For this I spent around 20 to 24 hours approximately, which isn't too much if I compare with how much I had spent in the past in works that are way less complicated. xD

No en serio, me cuesta a veces pero bueno con esto de la mitología lo tengo por la mano, me encanta el tema. Me alegro que te gustara, lo de la serpiente lo tuve que rehacer porque la 1a vez era horrible... Por cierto que al final mandé a CreativeStation y me publicaron (sé que lo viste zorrroo!! xD). Gracias por eso y por el comentario!! :hug:
