First of all...This is awesome already, you don't need a critic xD.

The composition is amazing....It really looks like you spent an awful long time on this.

The colours are beautiful :heart: They are so realistion, not too bright but bright enough to look real.

I really like the while concept of your colossus, it sorta reminds me of a venis fly trap ^^.

There is so much detail in this picture, I could just stare for hours at all the tiny details that make this picture look stunning.

All I can say is good luck in this contest, your picture is very original ^^

Character design:
Th beak look pretty awesome, but I can't see how his body looks. Since the contest was about the creature design you would have done good to choose a perspective where the beast anatomy becomes clear. But aside of the contest, as an illustration this would do perfectly fine.

Colors:
Well chosen, very saturated colors on the beast and less saturated on the background. Must say this is you very best yet!


Lighting:
Not to exciting but pretty clear.

Painting technique:
I like how the things that matter are pretty rendered and the background has less detail, thats exactly the right way to do that.

Canvas:
Save choice and it works perfectly well. A more impressive canvas would be a very narrow portrait, adding more hight.

Big bad mouth-thing. The gestures of the knights work very well with the tiltel horizon.

thank you very much, it was because of that fact that I didn't finish my other colossus sketches. I am definitely proud of this artwork, and appreciate that you like it as well!

Thanks a lot I've been doing a lot of practice through out the months (at least 40 hrs per week) with color, paint, and the figure. I think the practice is paying off.

I like stories about mystic creatures, so I was already stuck there. Neat.
feel sorry for the "little" people, though. :ohnoes:

very cool :) I was using the rough scale provided by the contest rules as closely as possible. I agree about those knights; while I think they look dope, their situation is not.
