Rift: Death Colossus by natzuurjk Rift: Death Colossus by natzuurjk
My take on an death colossus. Decided to go with an arachnid, started this contest late, but I finished! =) Any phototexture usage is from my personally shot library.

Best viewed full size, it changes color profiling at lower rez. (download top right)

Please check our our kickstarter project for our upcoming game "Echoes of Aeons" [link]

Im not 100% sure on how long this took. I did some sketches at first that were 20-50 mins each, so about 3 hrs for those total. Then once I had this one chosen from the sketches I spent 1 week between 2-4 hrs a day ptining this. Probably somewhere in the range of 15-25 hrs total.

Gorgeous. Absolutely massive. And not in size. But in feel.

Would be great as a colossus.

nice sort of 'warped' texture to it with the tree's and lightning all bent inwards to the massive eyed purple spider which kind of reminds me of a fruit bat for some weird reason. Nice work in any case.

Oh man, I just downloaded the fullview and it's totally awesome! You captured a very good sense of atmospheric perspective here -- that's something I noticed a lot of entries to this contest are lacking -- and it really helps the monster to look even more humongous.
