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 :)

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

Hey! I don't really know you, but I checked out the original, and this is a great improvement! The little warrior person's stance is a much more interesting one, and the fire monster seems more, well... fiery!

Thank you for the kind words! :D It shows me that my decision to relearn (okay, right it is "to learn") the fundamentals was the best I could do. Though it is way harder than expected... still have a looong way to go :)

hey, wow! This new version is really incredible. I really like how sharp this image is, it gives off the reflection of reality. It also makes the magma pool dripping from the big magma dude that much more glowy and realistic. I loves it!
You really deserve more credit as an artist ;).
