Beautiful. Is there really a Valhalla Guardian in Norse myth? I'm fond of that mtyh and don't recall one, but we learn something new everyday. Is there a name?

Wow....
...but, what happened to the clouds behind the guardian on the left? Suddenly jumps to a different colour. Was that intentional?

as usual quite stunning. It definatly has a viking vibe to it. I'm kinda doubting anyone will get through the gates.

made the changes you suggested to the feet and got the design set up for the tail (which was the only piece left to rough out) now I just have to retopologize it and then add the details! Haven't had much time to work on it lately, next time you're online send me a message on skype and I'll show you wip images

Gudramulv, random mash of words (god+ram+wolf) into norwegian. Sounds like something from northern mythos, viking perhaps, right?

Why not change ulv to Ulf instead. Since the name Ulf is an old viking name for wolf^^
