The original God of War visionary and creator, David Jaffe, considered this Charlie Wen rendering the pinnacle of the early concept phase. A significant part of the discovery of the first game, this was the image that gave the team a clearly defined direction as they headed into pre production development. Remnants of this visual can be seen in the final box art for God of War, as Kratos looks to the gates of Olympus. Titled “6d”, this piece was included in many of the early marketing materials and sell sheets for the game.
