Fire Colossus by Nowio Fire Colossus by Nowio
EDIT: Thank's to :iconreganov: for pointing out that the image is lacking interaction between the guy and the crab I changed it a bit, hope you like it! :)


Hey folks, long time no see! As some of you might know I am busy learning new stuff.... selftaugh and thats f*cking hard and.... well, not very resting and extremelly time consuming :)

But hey, I feel like I am improving, slow and painfully boring but I'M IMPROVING FOR GODS SAKE!!!

I thought to redo an old piece because I wanted to see If I could improve it etc... Aaaaand I picked one that I know that I liked back then :D

All in all I see that I learned something in the past months but I also want to hear YOUR thoughts about it so please:

go crazy with the critiques!

aaaaand here is the old version of this thingie ;)

This is a major improvement on the old version dude, the feeling of heat is there in the atmosphere, it feels thick and smoggy. The character feels like he is engaging the monster a lot more with the hot winds blowing his cloak back.

The only thing I could suggest to improve it further would be try and make the monster more engaged with the character, this could be done in many ways;
-by tilting the monsters head downward
-by elevating the character onto a cliff
-by attempting to make it look like the monsters eyes are looking downward, difficult with the design though

Either way it's awesome work :)

Thank you for the compliment! And great tips you have there, I think I'll go with putting the guy on a cliff and also try to tilt the head a bit down :)

Done :) Don't hesitate to say something about the changes, are they as you imagined or is somethin overdone /missing?

Awesome dude, that made a real difference!
Only thing would be moving him slightly to the right a little, and then giving him a shadow cast behind him from the light of the monster :D
