Fire Colossus

Here is my entry for the RIFT Colossus Contest. Had a few hours spare time today so I tried a new style and came up with this 4-arm monster.

How do you like it?

And by the way: I really think it was a bad idea of this guy to challange the colossus :D

Planar Theme: Fire

Done in Photoshop (first time ever I painted something 100% in PS)
in about 6h
EDIT [5.22.11]: Just realized I can do a better fire & gas effekt - add another hour of working time ;)
Coments and critique are very welcome! ;)

hi i'm making a TCg and i was wondering if i could use this monster for a card. I will give credit for this amazing drawing and if you answer no i will understand. Also sorry if you might think this question is rude for that is not my intention at all.

Hi, sorry for the late reply, wasn't here at deviantart for some time.
I'm sorry but I cannot allow you to use my work since other people are hiring me to do this kind of work for money.

how the hell did you do the gas and the fire? Sorry, I think I've commented before, but I just keep looking at this picture, it's so good!

it's pretty simple: Just create the basic color glow of fire and used a effect that makes it look like water (don't know the name of the effect in English - Sorry). It's best when you make this after you nearly finished the picture because you have to merge it down to one layer. Copy the nearly finished picture to another layer, because the gas effect is just the background with the water-like effect. so now you can erase everything which isn't supposed to have the gas you're done ;)

*runs off to try it*
Thank you! I don't think I have the water effect, but I can make a pretty cool one using transparency and the smudge tool to create a ripple effect.
But that you so much! This helped a lot :D

Oh, und Gratulation zu 100% PS! Eigentlich gar nicht so anders wie Painter, oder?
TWPictures's avatar
doch, is schon en bisschen anders...aber jetzt hab ich raus, was ich machen muss, dass es eher gezeichnet aussieht und nicht so künstlich ;)
