I wanted to show another take on colossus. He's supposed to be a sweet giant colossus who just needs love (just like everyone does). But people is afraid of him. His body is divided in two: green nature with waterfalls and trees, and the darker side with the volcano. He's staring at the castle with curiosity but also with sorrow, since people will always run away from him and try to kill him for being what it is. Deep thoughts on this one :)

Painted in about 35 hours in Photoshop CS4. Huge canvas as always (around 6500x10000px at 300dpi). Textures used from www.cgtextures.com and sxc.hu.

I have to agree, those trees on him are taller then the volcano on his shoulder.

This is absolutely gorgeous. I adore the design on the colossus; turtle-like creatures carrying an ecosystem on their backs always fascinated me. I'm surprised he even notices us humans, considering the size difference. From this picture, we'd be no bigger than a flea.

I love the duality of the colossus; it represent how we visualize nature (life and... well, natural process)

Wow, this is beautiful. Before I even saw the description I felt the colossus was a gentle giant, his intimidating appearance hiding a lonely heart. What impresses me most is your use of light here (especially the sun through the clouds, the glowing lava, the colossus' heart and eyes). Also, this is just a little thing, but I like how well your watermark blends in and doesn't detract from the scene at all. c:

Your works, they are so breathtakingly beautiful, they made me cry.

The colours are so vivid that I feel like I am in a dream.

You leave me no choice. I have to purchase some to put in my room.
