Yggdrasil by redheaded-step-child Yggdrasil by redheaded-step-child
The Scandinavian/Norse World Tree, which was believed to support the entire universe. Asgard, the home of the Gods, is shown among the branches. The rainbow Bifrost Bridge connects Asgard to the mortal realm of Midgard, which is encircled by Jormungand, the immense Midgard Serpent. The dragon Nidhogg can be seen gnawing the Tree's roots beneath Helheim, the abode of the inglorious dead. Watercolor.

This is beautiful and represents the 3 main world in Norse Mythology! I love how you included the dragon and The Midgard Serpent in there as well!

Very lovely, I like the feeling of intricate Celtic artwork in the serpent and the roots. I also love the fact Bifrost actually ends in Scandinavia :D

Very interesting and nicely done.
Like the way you made Nidhugg and the Midgard Serpent.
