shadow.o.t.colossus: In Shadow by TeaBeforeWar shadow.o.t.colossus: In Shadow by TeaBeforeWar
Shadow of the Colossus is on the rather short list of things I completely fangirl over. And given the fact that I borrowed :iconlauraneato:'s PS2 just so I could finish it, I thought it about time that I draw some fanart. Even if it ended up pretty much the same as a lot of the other fanart that's already out there.

Relatedly, I finally beat it just yesterday. I had been stuck standing on the right hand of the final boss, apparently one shot of an arrow away from its vitals, for more than a year. Problem being that I don't own a PS2.

So anyway, now that I've actually seen the ending, I'm going to go draw some fanart of a completely different nature, because damn do I want to draw baby Wander.


Critique always welcome.

This appeared on the second page of 'all time' for colosus. The first page actually had sonic fanart in it. That is a crime against you and all of art.

Sorry to be a grammer nazi but its colossus not colosus. So strange, the presence or absence of a single "S" can be the difference between awesome fan art and crappy sonic knock offs.

I don't recognize that big guy there, though. An original Colossus?

I'm amazed more people haven't commented/faved on this. It's amazing, and I like how it catches the dark tone of the game.

Aw, thank you! Sadly, I know exactly how I ought to tweak it to make it a lot better, but I haven't gotten back to it - I got a lot of tips for small adjustments from my drawing teacher, who does work on backgrounds for animation movies. (It's actually pretty amazing how much a little re-framing and a couple other small changes make it so much better....) ^^;

Aw, well I'm sure it could use some improvement, but I think it's great the way it is now. ^_^ I've been meaning to do some more SotC fanart, but I haven't gotten around to it... so I know the feeling of not-getting-around to doing things. lol

:excited: This looks frickin' awesome! And damn I love that game. :D

The thumbnail in my message center looked like a seriously freaky ghost. Mind you, I've never found ghosts freaky, so I'd consider that a good thing. When I saw it up close I could totally tell it was a colossus, so no worries there. =p

Just wondering... did you ever play Ico?

TeaBeforeWar Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
Thank you! Alas, the detail is so dark, it's hardly a wonder it looks a bit silly small. :p

And Ico's sitting on top of the PS2, just waiting for my next stretch of guilty gaming time. (So much homework, so much homework...) Sadly, it's the other PS2 game I own but haven't finished thanks to the lack of a console, and also I'm actually delaying playing it to draws arts.... but... Gah, you just made me remember the fact that I wanted to play Ico back when it was first released! It's been so long...

Now excuse me while I go hunt down some of the other games I've wanted to play for an entire console generation, because damn if it isn't pathetic I haven't. :cries: :faint:

Ico is one of those games that can take anywhere from 4 hours to 20+, so if you wanted you could find a good walkthrough and wiz through it. Ico's just as awesome as SotC, so if you ever someday find the time, you should totally go for it. :D

But I know how that is to have more games then you can play. x_x

So good! I wish more people have seen and heard of this game. I think it's one of those gems that you discover that few others know about.... like Guardian of the Sacred Spirit... but really it's Shadow of the Colossus ; ) You really captured the mood of the game incredibly well! And look you included all the characters! And the horse! Look at that horse! I bet you it'd kick anyone's a$$ walking down a spiral staircase. ; )

You bet that horse could walk down a spiral staircase. But it might lose its head in the process. :noes:

And yeah, every character... but the dead girl. But it would be a bit odd to have her just lying around somewhere.
