Drake - a Life Colossus by Hvsky Drake - a Life Colossus by Hvsky
My concept entry for the RIFT colossus contest:

A bioluminescent life form which hides its minions in thick mist. It communicates through the colors of its bioluminescence.


By the way, theres a guy with a spear in the lower right corner ;)

He strides or move like a boat?

He kind of floats but always keeps his wingtips in the water for some cool ripples ;)

Quite extraordinary compared to other entries. Somehow I find this picture very mysterious and tranquil. Also an Evanescence song would be fitting for it X)

Thank you. It's actually possible that I was listening to Evanescence while painting :)

Guy with a spear = tiny winy thingy on the 'lighthouse' ? :D - Otherwise I'd say there's no guy with a spear and you just said it to confuse me! .. :o

Guy with spear is at the bottom platform of the tower, you can only really see him on the original sized picture ;)
He's just about 20 pixels in height :)

Very impressive and original creature. It doesn't look like something from Tron at all. Did you got your inspiration from some prehistoric fish? I like the simplicity of the craeture's form. It makes it look more colossal.

To tell you the truth, the basic shape started as a doodle in my sketchbook.
It was strongly influenced by things I like, that's why it ended up as a crossover of a modern windmill and a whale.
Afterwards there were other influences, mostly fireflies :)
But I guess you are also partly right, it clearly has some features of a prehistoric fish ;)
Sometimes it's amazing how many things do have a influence on the design...

Thank you very much!
Well I haven`t seen Tron until now, maybe I should finally watch it :)
Somehow everyone is talking about it, is it really that impressive?
