Grazie Simo'! Io ho scaricato il set di pennelli di un certo Saejinoh (stile manga però mi sembrava bravino con PS...), poi penso che qualsiasi set un po' vario vada bene...

Comunque ti linko il download del set: [link]

e la legenda dei pennelli (davvero comoda per orientarsi tra i vari pennelli e sapere per cosa li usa lui): [link]

Grazie mille, ora scarico tutto.
Comunque ho seguito il tuo consiglio riguardo i gruppi di deviantart ma non è andata benissimo, è la seconda volta che vengo segnalato per spam,lol.
La prima volta perchè ho copincollato il messaggio su una decina di gruppi di nazientusiastici, solo che tipo sette di questi erano di un tizio solo che s'è fatto rodere.
E oggi m'è arrivato un secondo messaggio di uno che fa tipo sì vabbè carina la maglietta ma questo per me è spam.
Che sensibilità!

i agree with something that can helps one show a high size
but you have some pretty good job over here, the way of the lines, the concept for the arm with a face , thought i enjoy seeing the sketch one, helps a lot to see the rest of the details :)
coolio

Your colossus looks a lot more awesome then mine. O_O And it doesn't look WoW-ish. They say it couse it has a lot of accessories on it and the characters in that game look like they strapped a bunch of magnets to themselves and ran trough a frying pan shop. :lol: This is way detached from that. :D Wish you luck! :D

I know jack about Rift, but I agree it's got a bit of WoW feel to it design wise. The drawing style isn't WoW though. Almost Dale Keown Pitt stuff.

Thank you! I used a 0.5 HB mechanical pencil and then added some color on Photoshop cs5. Nothing special. I just focused on doing the best pencils I could and polishing colors with a couple of textures. Hope it helps! :D

I like the concept. It needs something to help establish scale, maybe a small sketch of a normal sized human?
Reply
:iconspikesdm:
SpikeSDM Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Maybe you're right, but I decided not to put the human scale into it just because I think I couldn't establish that without really knowing how to defeat a colossus in Rift. I mean, depending on what powers the player can use to face him, this colossus could be developed as a 20 to 70 feet tall giant. But that's just my opinion, and I'm not a conceptual artist so I don't even know if this does make any sense :D
Anyway thank you for your advice and for stopping by! Much appreciated, man! :w00t:

Trion suggested a maximum size of 10 stories tall. I'm not sure if it even matters at this point, considering the contest is already concluded.

As a concept your design looks great though.
