Water colossus - Dethrant by Ragaru Water colossus - Dethrant by Ragaru
FIRST OF ALL, DOWNLOAD IT TO GET THE FULL IMPRESSION OF THE PIECE!
(I' put in a lot of details)

My Rift Colossus entry:

Dethrant - Leviathan of the seas.

An enormous cephalopod, turtle, dragon, humanoid abomination from depths so deep it would weaken the heart of even the bravest!

I spent a whole lot of time, and even feared not making it within the deadline, so it is a rushed work.. as one can notice at several areas.

And for size comparison... there's a ship on it's shoulder, really way beyond the gameplay size for rift.. but if I am to make a colossus I make it colossal! =D

Any opinions?

I honestly thought this was Typhon, one of the most prominent Greek titans. The design is very similar, he was a storm god, and he was defined by his immense scale. The gods were terrified of him.

Awesome art, dude.

I really like this piece and I love the detail (e.g. the texture of the face). One criticism, though: there are too many large (near) raindrops, and too few small (distant) ones. I don't know of any way to do that that isn't hellaciously time-consuming, so I'm aware that's asking a lot, but I wanted to put that out there. Still, overall, love the picture.

"Who dares open the doors of his mouth, ringed about with his fearsome teeth?

His back has rows of shields tightly sealed together; each is so close to the next that no air can pass between. They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted.

His snorting throws out flashes of light; his eyes are like the rays of dawn. Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fire of reeds. His breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from his mouth.

Strength resides in his neck; dismay goes before him. The folds of his flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable. His chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone.

When he rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before his thrashing.

The sword that reaches him has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin. Iron he treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood. Arrows do not make him flee, sling stones are like chaff to him. A club seems to him but a piece of straw, he laughs at the rattling of the lance. His undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing-sledge. He makes the depths churn like a boiling cauldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment..... Nothing on earth is his equal— a creature without fear."

Hey I was wondering, with the contest long finished, do you have any more plans for this colossal creature? I think it would be interesting to see what you might do with it in one of your own settings. :D

Sorry but I haven't given any of my projects much though lately, just focused on the maths and the web study, and now the Zelda Project is at hand, as the sooner I get it up, the sooner it might be realized.

And of course the Ganondorf sculpture at the side of it =D

There really wasn't any true inspiration(only that it had to be colossal and live in water), sometimes i just close my eyes and think of what would be a suitable silhouette, so i get the rough idea of what it may look like, and sketch it down, then i work on the details. I might for example do a whole lot of designs for the head, and pick the one i like best but carry over some of the features i like better from the other designs.
So it's just the imagination unfolding itself in a creative way! =D

Reminds me a little of my white Rahkshi, Kurahk, or how I imagined him in real life.

Ha ha, that surely would be one heck of a Rahkshi compared to the set or first Bionicle Movie.

I guess Rakhshi would be looking somewhat similar in my "Bionicle Revelations" concept :iconbadassplz:
