Water Planar Colossus
Create A Colossus Contest
Wanted to encorporate turtle, whale, squid, alligator/crocodile and fish anatomy.
Also wanted to show the 'short' shell, a la snapping turtle, which covers it's back, and merges into the scales on the tail, but can't do that from this angle.
Had a real battle with colors, because for once i did most of my work on one layer!
And then realized I didn't like my colors.
so that was a tricky fix, and I'm still not 100% satisfied. But I think it looks pretty solid, and the form is more important to me than the colors. I chose the light blue for the mouth/glow, because that is the color associated with Water in the RIFT source references.
