Death Rift Colossus by steven-donegani Death Rift Colossus by steven-donegani
My official entry for the contest being held by Rift and DA.

I tried going for a humanoid being with a gaunt and sickly looking features being something from the realm of death. To combat it's frail looking exterior I decided that a menacing furnace of broiling arcane magic flowing through it would make it not only physically powerful, but also capable of casting earth-shattering spells.

I had a great experience while making this and learned a lot in the process.

Good luck to everyone who entered! I've got my fingers crossed because there are a lot of great entries!

tools: CS4, CS5 and Tablet.

Very interesting, kinda abstract thing. Reminds me of something you'd see in an Evengelion monster (and that's a compliment). I like the abstract look for the death and Rift theme, and it's also fitting that he has the large blade arm, almost reminiscent of a guillotine... kinda. :P

I thought the bladed arm could swing across the battleground and do massive damage to those unfortunate to get caught by it!

ps I love evangelion :)

Yeah, you definitely caught that in its design; that's exactly what it looks like it'd be doing. Ah, cool. You definitely got a similar design style as Evangelion with the abstract look. :D
