Greetings, contest holder. I went and started working on the rest of the illustrations. Here's my rendition of Yggdrasil. I tried to keep it simple, and compelling. I used ideas from both images that you pointed out as the closer to your vision. I added the runes surrounding the design as I think they make a better composition than the hammers. Please let me know what you think of this one, as well as my second entry for the wolf. Thank you for your time. David.
