Voici mon colosse de la vie, pour le Rift Contest! Je crois que j'ai jamais autant galéré sur un dessin @_@" J'essayerai de monter le niveau de détail et de continuer à travailler sur ce dessin... quand j'aurais dormi!
Hi all! This is my version of the Water Colossus, done for the Rift game contest.
As you can see, it's a water dragon-snake-angler fish type of creature that lives in the deep, deep sea. It moves fast and stealthily. Since the creature is colossal, however, it can't just pass by unnoticed, no matter how silent, so it prefers to wait for its prey to come to it on its own. And it always works, since it has that shiny thing on its head - a bait that attracts curious creatures - by the light alone, or, if needed, by sending ultra sound signals through the water.
The Colossus can survive on land for a couple of hours. When not in water, it moves like a lizard, and it uses it's main weapon in the same way like in the water.
This is the main boss in the game, so, beating him won't be easy.. the most important thing to know is:
try to avoid its deadly punches (the tail, especially), as well as the ultra sound hypnotizing rings (that can distract you by messing up your orientation sense), while trying to do the main thing - get as close as possible to the shiny bait and destroy it. The creature will instantly die.
My third colossus, this one from the earth plane. Instead of a huge guy made of spiky rocks, I decided I might try mud and dried-out clay. I was at a loss for what to put on his head and finally decided to give him a bunch of plateaus, kind of like the Devil's Tower monument I visited when I was a kid.
This is The concept I whipped up after 7 revisions to the over all concept, I seriously wish I had more time to flesh it out but I'm extremely thankful for all the critique I received to make it better.
