Earth Colossus - Arkhitekton by Maxa-art Earth Colossus - Arkhitekton by Maxa-art
Disassembling, crafting and building the earth, the Architect, here is my entry !

I'm so slow that I feel it would be better to have drawn a giant slug...

The colossus does embody the earth but not in the traditional sense. I am glad you ignored the cliche golem look and went for a statue, a mason with a globe embedded in his chest. It is twisted hybrid, quite hard to tell where one being ends and an other begins, high quality design and rich detailing, the adventurers combating it do look understandably hesitant.

Great work, keep it up.

C'est clair que les organisateurs ont du jubiler vu le nombre de participations ! Ton architekton aurait mérité de faire parti des finalistes en tout cas, je le pense sincèrement, certains semi finalistes avaient proposé des choses bien moins intéressantes de mon point de vue

Bah, sur la technique pure, je pense que j'étais en dessous niveau technique pure (y'a qu'à comparer les rendus de roche).

Mais je pense qu'on est plusieurs a avoir été assez surpris (pas dans le bon sens) du choix des finalistes par rapport à ce qu'on a vu comme entrées, d'un point de vue design notamment (il y avait de bons trucs cela dit). En tout cas, à part deux ou trois, mon choix perso aurait été bien différent. Je pense que c'est une question de cahier des charges qui était très arrêté (et après on vous dira "soyez créatif" =p).

Égoïstement je te dirais que tu ne perds rien à essayer et que en tout cas ça me fait vachement plaisir.

Prosaïquement, je te dirais que tu fais comme tu le sens et que je m'en voudrais de te faire perdre ton temps.

A toi de voir ! :la:

Ca ne garantie rien par contre, six deviations suggérées et pas une seule acceptée, en plus pour la catégorie peinture digitale, ils sont particulièrement sélectifs, la première fois que j'ai fait une suggestion, j'ai eu une réponse négative contenant des liens vers des œuvres de malade de chinois qui doivent avoir 150 ans d'expérience !! avec une phrase du genre "voici nos critères" lol

Au fait rien, à voir, mais juste pour te signaler que si tu réponds à ton propre message, il n'apparait pas chez moi en feedback donc j'ai 93,7% de chances de ne jamais le voir =p.

Sinon oui les critères pour les DD, je crois que c'est "selon les goûts et l'humeur de type qui s'en occupe" XD.

The Architect? Catchy!

I can imagine it now....the bell rings, the announcer walks into the ring, and starts off by saying:

"Ladies and gentlemen we've got a special treat for you to night, the Masked Maimer will be facing an old favorite! Yes you know him, the Chiseler of Chaos, the Master of the Mountains, the Hammer of Havoc, it's The AAAAAAAARCHITEEEEEEECHT!"

Then the fight is over.

And just like this art here, it was epic.

This is the best from what ive seen from the other entries...the concept is really cool...and the touch of the mallet and chisel is pretty awesome, thus really show conjures up to its name...Arkhitekton, the Architect. :)

Hope you win, Good Luck :D

Yes, this is...wow, I'm honestly not sure if words can express how amazing this is. It's a very well drawn work, but it's the design of the colossus I like best. It's so...alien and twisted, and its title just suits it perfectly.

Waouh j'adore. En fait, je l'ai regardé parceque je voulais voir si quelqu'un d'autre avait fait un colosse complexe (je veux dire ni bipède, ni ressemblant à un animal connu par exemple). Si tu veux voir le mien: [link]
