Life Colossus by thomaswievegg Life Colossus by thomaswievegg
So, I decided to give this a try and made this one before work. But unfortunately I was a bit sloppy with the "research" part, not being familiar with the Rift universe, I don't really see this one fit in any of the categories haha, plus he's waaaay to big!.. faaaail!.. My initial thought was Earth obviously.. but after I saw the "examples" I felt I had been going in the wrong direction.. And by that time I was waay more than half into the making of this giiiant tree thing.

Oh well! I learned some stuff and I kind of like how it turned out. Eventough it got a little rushed. (I only spent about 4 hours on it.. :( )

It's spring, and he's having himself a little drink!
thanks for watching

changed the name to Life Colossus as it seemed more fitting

if u want to make it look really big you should make all kinds of little tries and rocks growing and sitting on him instead of a big tree on his back that is larger than the twintowers and all this huge rocks that are larger then houses. just put some tiny details and it looks waaayy bigger. thats my opinion.

I don't think it's too big. It is a Collossus, after all.

You say you did your research on the RIFT universe after this piece, likely this gave an advantage by not being corrupted with their art style. Very pure. I on the other hand have had nothing but frustration creating a piece for this contest. Kudos.

I love this one, because the colossus' design is not lost in the background. It's like a really good profile picture of someone on facebook, with a pretty view to boot. Or something.

Life element might work better. I think this is pretty dang awesome. I am trying this contest as well. I plan on doing an air element. Its going to be a Galeforce Spectre. It is part hooded ghost part rocky rune. It will float and shoot blasts of air. I hope to aspire to your level of detail. I think I agree with you on the too big aspect.

I think it suits the Life Plane well, because there are other large tree ents. Not this large however. :) I think it looks really cool.
