Life Element Submission by xvortexbladex Life Element Submission by xvortexbladex
I was inspired by the corpse flowers of two different species, the Rafflesia and the Amorphallus Titanum. The limbs are made of twisted trunks of the Bristlecone Pine, a tree that can live up to 5,000 years.

The colossus uses its limbs to support its weight as well as defensive/offensive purposes.
The Corpse Flowers may develop teeth so that adventurers lured by the strange blossoms become an unwitting prey. The vegetation on the colossus will continue to grow at a cancerous rate making it the embodiment of the virility of the life element.

ty! most of the textures were done with brushes set an an opacity on preset. you can download those off of conceptart.org and brusheezy. I loooove the vegetation and cloud brushes. Most other things are done with hard brushes and the rotating trianglular brush in ps 5

Unfortunately no lol. The bloom on its back is called a corpse flower which hints at what it smells like :D cheers!
