Shadow of the Colossus: Avian Reflection by Risachantag Shadow of the Colossus: Avian Reflection by Risachantag
Inspired by a Shadow of the Colossus dream I had a few nights ago, which was tremendously strange*, but the lighting and atmosphere of it stayed with me.

Shadow of the Colossus has to be the game I've had recommended to me the most times of any game, but I have to admit, I only recently played it when the PS3 HD version came out. I'm sure it'd be no surprise to anyone to say I enjoyed it.


*If you really want to know, it involved a rather stupid company attempting to train colossi into being a tourist attraction. This went all kinds of wrong.

Time: 10 hrs
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Wacom Intuos tablet

Looks amazing! I'm downloading the whole soundtrack and I'n deciding to use this as the album art. I'll share more of your pics to get your name out there some more because more views never hurt, don't worry I'll link every one I post on my G+ account.

While this piece of art does the game justice in every way possible. Let me just say in all seriousness, that dream needs to be made into fanfic.

Gah, you did Avion so well. *happy tears* The Delta Phoenix is by far one of my favorite Colossi, followed closely by Cenobia the Destruction Luster.

The angle and pose imply continued motion and tell a story together.
