Need references?
Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!

RIFT Create a Colossus Contest

Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. We're challenging you to create a new colossus
(a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

You're traveling through Telara as a bright light appears. A massive rift opens up and monsters start invading. Your team fights to protect their land. As they continuously battle the invading monsters, a massive, 10-story colossus appears.

deviantART is challenging artists to answer the question: What does this colossus look like in RIFT?

Le Blotti
Le Blotti :  il est là, engoncé dans les détails qui l'entourent, immobile et figé, apeuré à l'idée d'être découvert. Et pourtant l'imaginaire l'a débusqué puis modelé à partir des glyphes abstraits qui étaient censés à eux seuls recouvrir la surface de ce tableau.

Un peu de freestyle parti de motifs abstraits.

My pleasure :)

Looks like I'm going to spend some time at reading your story. The part I've started to read is interesting and that won't hurt me to work a bit on my poor English :)
