The Nine Realms

    Watched Thor recently and I've been wanting to make something revolving around the world Thor comes from. So, I geeked out this Sunday and decided to make an iPhone 5 wallpaper showing "The Nine Realms" of Nordic mythology/cosmology:

    Asgard The Heaven World of the Gods.
    Alf-heim The World of the light Elves.
    Nifl-heim The World of Cold and Darkness.
    Jotunheim The World of the Giants.
    Midgard The Earth World of human beings.
    Vana-heim The World of the Vanes.
    Muspells-heim The World of Fire.
    Svart-alf-heim The World of the dark Elves.
    Hel-heim The World of the dead.

    Had a blast learning and trying to come up with concepts to symbolize each realm. Was challenging for sure.

    Attached are two different versions – The original (showing the pathways in which all the realms are connected) and a minimal version without the pathways. Also, the zip contains red, green, and blue versions of the wall as well.

    Anyways, checkout the @2x and enjoy the walls ♥ ♥ ♥

    Outstanding. Projects you gotta slog through info for always come out the best. The understanding that comes with research makes the design better. Love it.

    @Blake N. Behrens – Totally agree. Trying to get better about that too, doing more research and have a better understanding of subject matter before designing anything. Really appreciate the kind words Blake :D
