Overgrown Colossus Concept Art by arvalis Overgrown Colossus Concept Art by arvalis
Here is a recent homework assignment for Digital Illustrative Imaging. We had to take a silhouette and develop two different things from the same silhouette. The first one is what i initially had in mind. The credit for the second one's idea goes out to *Gorrem, thanks a ton dude. Still have a huge composition with this beast to do for my final.

Personally I am anything but an artist, but I know good art when I see it. I usually browse deviant art looking for images that I can really appreciate, and usually that art comes from experience. I recently played SotC which is how I came across this and I will tell you this, it really grabbed my attention. I think that this has a lot if detail and effort put into it and it does an excellent job of showing subtle opposites. The colossi are extremely different in color, appearance and size. However the similarities are quite notable being they are almost the same creature, and both are plant like in origin. I appreciate if you took the time to read this and I would like to thank you in advance for reading my critique. (It is my first one after all). And the only thing I have left or say is... I really hope that you got a good mark for this.
What do you think?

i like the first one... way bigger.... plus it looks like it would be a pain to look for.
but the second looks like it would put up more of a fight.

I like the dark theme with high contrast on the mushroom beast. Animals without visible eyes are especially cool, always.

Both character concepts are incredibly imaginative.

I'm almost thinking that there could be entire ecosystems based off of these creatures, at least from what I gather both seem to be supporting a huge forested/mushroom area on their backs.
