RIFT Fire Colossus by Vaejoun RIFT Fire Colossus by Vaejoun
My 3rd entry for the colossus contest:
"The avatar of the red one"
Meaning the red dragon, who is the leading power behind all fire plane creatures.

This one was hard, I spent a long time on the design. At first I wanted to paint a dragon, but Dragons are always special in rpgs. In Rift there are the big dragons, each controlling one element. Of course the red one is for fire.
Next idea was some vulcano, mountain monster... look through the entrys so far and you will find lots of examples.
The final idea came from the sun and some pictures of venecian masks. Et voila!

The two sun rings are rotating and after some time a fireball will appear in the outer ring. Then a 2nd and so on, untill the ring is complete. That is the timelimit for the raid, when it is reached a bright lightball will appear on the dragon's nose, starting to shoot a laser like firebeam. Killing all raid members.

Love the sun-inspired design, and the combination of the elaborated discs with the beast-face. Tremendous.

That's one of the more abstract and bizarre entries that I've seen come out of that RIFT Colossus contest. Can't really think of a better concept for a fire-based colossus than a representation of the sun itself. Way to take something so basic and turn it into something badass.

Ach hallo Poul. ^^
Danke für das Lob, kann auch schon garnicht abwarten bis es endlich mal ausgewertet wird. Nach meiner Erfahrung mit Wettbewerben könnte es aber auch noch 3 Monate dauern. Will es aber nicht hoffen.

It reminds me of the old MTG card "Chaos Orb". Neat stuff :)
