Salamander whale by TheKiller7 Salamander whale by TheKiller7
Like the name itself sais, the monster is inspired on a whale and a salamander :meow:, mixing both and adding some changes to the combo, obviously is a colossus for the PLANE OF WATER.

I don´t know how exactly is going to be the fight with this thing, so, I decided to build something that can fight players on water on earth alike.

The work is done with acrylics on flat watercolor paper, now looks pretty well because I've just uploaded a better version instead of the atrocius photo version, now is well scanned and the file itself have pretty high resolution.

Also, as an option (not displayed on the work) he may have an extra long tongue, because he is half amphibian and it will be a nice way to attack players.

That's all, hope everyone like it.

PD: A lot of people though that the round bone on the side of his mouth was an eye, which may change the true intnettion of the work, making the monster just hilarious, so, I changed that.

Qué exageración :D

Bueno, la verdad es que al menos esperaba poder pasar las "semifinales" -aunque ahora ni me acuerdo de cómo estaba organizado el tema- y que por ahí se coló algún diseño realmente malo al que me gustaría haberle pasado la mano por la cara, pero la competencia era dura y sí que había mucha gente que merecía el premio mucho más.

Muchas gracias por eso ;)

De nada, y en mi opinión no he exagerado en lo absoluto, era digno de ser ganador, pero bueno, hay más concursos y más oportunidades ;)

the picture caught my eye before I saw the title, and I thought "man, what is that? some kind of salamander whale?" and then I saw the title and thought "oh, well I guess it is"
very well portrayed

Awesome creature! It is really unusual yet frightening. All that is missing is something that gives you a measure of how big this thing actually is.

It is from any place, is a design for the "create a colossus contest" on DA.

Estoy de acuerdo con lo que dijeron, debe ser lo mejor en tradicional para el concurso.
Sobre lo que mencionaste de la perspectiva en el blog, la verdad fue un lió por que uno no sabe si hacer algo mostrando bien al coloso u otra cosa más dramática.

Viendo algunos dibujos seleccionados, el modelador deberá inventarse la mitad del coloso xD

:iconthekiller7:
TheKiller7 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2011
La verdad es que sí, hay mucho coloso que es solo una ilustración super efectista de un bicho a contraluz y visto desde un angulo raro y no se entiende una mieeeeeeeerda que es lo que estás viendo, aunque a nivel de contrastes quede precioso.

Yo no soy demasiado de dibujar perspectivas, y como además no se me da mal del todo el rollo de ilustración de libro de la abuela, pués lo hago a lo Alberto durero, de lado, estático, y con mucho detallito :/ como una ilustración de libro de medicina.

Gracias por el comentario!
