Rift colossus contest entry : the flaming gimp
My own entry for the "RIFT create a Colossus contest", the goal was to create one (or more) concept art relating one colossus of one element (fire, water, air, earth, death, life). The colossus must appeared pretty big, like a boss in its environnement.
I didn't really feel like creating a mutant or a weird thing, though it's always more original compared to a simple black dragon (mine).
This is a 10-men raid to fight a black dragon, that's pretty hard to see but there are 10 little men in the painting, two got burned and pull out the boss while the raid wasn't prepared to fight (noobs are everywhere); you can see them on the sketch line I did, they appeared in pink, though I changed one of the guys who got burned but he's not the hardest to see :D
It's the first time I've done a painting that way, I used the filter "Flame" in Gimp, it does a lot of weird things, then I put colors on this weird thing, and I use every part of the picture I got on my screen to complete other parts.
I've rotate the same duplicated picture to have different elements on the screen, like a rotating brush.
I wasn't really confident on this one... at first I wanted to find a way to create the same effect I had with the Flame filter with one brush, but I failed until I use the clone tool which obviously was the best choice to clone the same elements on the painting but I wasn't that proud using the clone tool but it worked out nicely so nvm =)
I used 2500x2500 just for the show with the Flame filter, it's quite neat.
I think I've spent, erm ... 9 hours on this one :/

Edit : I've made it lighter and put some poor details on the raiders
