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.

That video game is cool. I like this because how dark it is and it's eyes are blue.

I love SotC!
And this drawing looks so awesome, omg @__@

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.
ZoeHildebrand-R Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2011
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.
JohnLeFou Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011
I...I...could have sworn I fixed that typo before I posted it. Agreed.

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

It's my favourite game in absolute !
And your work is excellent.
My compliments... :D
alilew Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
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.
TeaBeforeWar Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
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....) ^^;
alilew Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
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

simply gorgeous, i love how you captured the size comparison between Wander, Agro and the Collossus. Lovely work!

I love that game, it's so vast! This picture is awesome, I love it and it's going in my favs.
OnirikWay Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2008
You perfectly gave the soul and the spirit of the game with this art. Congratulation, really!
Vampirepenguin93 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
I love the setting of the piece :D
It's really good!
Yensil Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
Yeeees, I need to play this. ^^;
squidlarkin Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
: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:
squidlarkin Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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
lauraneato Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
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. ; )
TeaBeforeWar Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
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.
