Kratos is easily one of my most requested characters so I'm glad to finally get him off the table. Just in time for Ascension too.
This took a while, not just because the background needed the time but also because there was a lot going on with the characters themselves and I needed to be careful not to color/shade something incorrectly. I've only played the first and third God of War games and, out of the two, the most memorable moment was probably the fight with Cronos so that was my starting point. I fidgeted a ton with adjustment layers to give a better impression of depth and scale and I'm still not sure if I should have gone further. I think that, all things considered, this is one of my better ones.
Finally, I'd like to thank ~nathradas
for his great blood splatter brushes that were used in this piece.
