Life Colossus by Manweri Life Colossus by Manweri
At last, I managed to finish it in time!
I wish I'd gotten started on this one earlier than 5 days before deadline, but I managed to complete it inbetween work and life in general. This is something I could have worked on for at least 10 more hours, but I'd rather get some sleep now :sleepy:

I hope you enjoy this bearded Life Colossus; it was very fun to work on it, despite the stress during the last few hours :)

Medium: Photoshop CS5
Time spent: Uhm, maybe 30-40 hours I think
Date: June 19, 2011

I'd love to see this and your other works come to life in an animation one day; They emit the same magic of great fantasy movies :D

Thank you very much! I aim to work as a concept artist for movies and games, so seeing some of it animated some day should hopefully be possible ;)

Hope you get there, big dream for me too one day to make my own story from my writing and art into an animation. But yours would be beautiful in movement :D

Then I wish you the best of luck as well! Never give up :) (and I'm actually working on a short animated film at school now, so I should see some of my work come to life soon then ;) )

This looks like one of the best detailed monsters of the Colossus pack, and that is saying something :D

I can barely even get through the basic setup. By the time detailing comes, I'm burned out and every thing turn to vomit.

Haha, I guess we all have different strengths ;) I know several people who hate doing details, but they're awesome at speedpaintings, for instance ^^

This is really neat. I like the design, and the colors overall. The branches/hands was very cool, and I especially liked the face. Good luck!

that's an original collossus, part horse, part tree... really surprising! :)
The colors are nice and I love the characters, especially the one on the right. that's one I can really relate to! :D

Thank you very much! ^^ It is mostly inspired by an interesting root I found in the forest not so long ago, but there are certainly elements from my interests in the design as well ;)
I think my favourite character is the one hanging from the Colossus' hand :D

Now that you mention it, he looks like an old sage to me, so I guess he probably won't move a lot for at least a thousand years :D
