I started by looking up reference pictures of gulper eels, viper fish, crabs, and other deep sea creatures. I drew out some sketches of ideas for the creature then decided on one I really liked. I then drew a side view of it so I could really figure out how I wanted it took look from front to back:

Once I had figured out what I wanted I drew this more dynamic picture and colored it. I am really happy with how it turned out.

The head is more like a gulper eel and it's neck stretches out so it can grab people in it's huge mouth. It's crab like armored body protects it from getting a lot of damage and it's eel like tail can whip around and smash people.

I hope you enjoy it!

Fullview to feel the baby kick! :o

My second entry for the Rift: Create a Colossus Contest.
This one was a real pain in the ass, made over 40 backup files and it took me about 10 hours to make.

Made in Photoshop CS5
Used a Wacom Intuos4 Large tablet.
Made possible by; Coffee. (a lot of it)
_______________________________

The concept:

It is of course the Colossus of Life, this should be clear.
The most important aspect of the design is the embryo inside the womb, this represents the very core of all life. Everything on earth, every plant, flower and tree originates from the embryo. Veins and branches run from the embryo into the ground as the roots of all life. The embryo is very delicate and fragile and must be protected, when no danger is present the embryo is out in the open and visible but as soon as danger comes, in the form of people or any other entity, mother instinct kicks in and it closus up. It will hide under a thick coat of trees, foliage and branches. The colossus will do everything in it's power to prevent the outsiders from doing harm to the embryo. Naturally, the embryo is the Achilles heel of the colossus.
The entire colossus is connected to the earth, it's rooted in the ground so it is unable to move to a different position. Also, it's arms are mostly rooted to the ground.
It's main defence are the huge bugs who live besides the colossus.
______________________________

Maybe if I find the time, I will change it up a bit to fully present my concept the best way possible.

Hope you like it! (and hope I win something :la:)

Feedback is always Ok-Good!

So this is my entry for the RIFT colossus contest.

I stuck to one concept: growth.

So, the colossus is not "the plant", or "the tree", but rather the roots themselves.

This particular one has been sitting on this very spot for a long time, being just "life" with the landscape and plants and animals living there. Until some bored heroes went to wake it up =]

After hours and hours of work, finally, it's finished !

My entry for the RIFT colossus contest :

Ybicus, the colossus of life

Des racines et des ronces sortent directement du plan de la vie émergeant du ciel pour former une créature gigantesque.
De sa gueule garni de petites dents acérées peuvent jaillir des lianes et des ronces meurtrières qui fouetterons ses ennemis jusqu'à ce que mort s'en suive. Les guerriers trop curieux seront accueillis par des griffes qui les balayeront. De la cage thoracique de la créature s'échappe des nuées de fées démoniaques prêtent à lacérer le visage des plus téméraires. Aucun geste, aucun mouvement ne peut échapper à son regard. Les yeux parcourant le corps du colosse occultent tout angle mort.

Google traduction (with remix) :

Roots and brambles come directly from the plane of life emerging from the sky to form a gigantic creature.
His mouth filled with small sharp teeth may well creepers and brambles deadly scourge enemies until death ensues. Warriors too curious to be received by the claws that sweep. The thoracic cage of the creature escapes swarms of demonic fairies lend to lacerate the face of the boldest. No gesture, no movement can not escape his gaze. Eyes through the body of the colossus obscure any blind spot.
