RIFT Create A Colossus Contest on deviantART

Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. deviantART is challenging you to create a new colossus (a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

RIFT is a dynamic massively multiplayer online role-playing game where 8 primal forces battle for control in an ever-changing landscape.

Choose one of the six planar themes: earth, air, fire, water, life, or death and create concept art of a colossus (a boss) using one of these themes. Residents of any country are eligible to enter.

Objective

The RIFT Create A Colossus Contest is about you building a new colossus (a new boss) for the game.

  1. Choose one of the six planar themes.
  2. Create concept art for a massive boss using your favorite image editing program, 3D graphics software, or traditional media.
  3. Once you’re done, submit it as a .JPG or .PNG file!

Your colossus:

  • Must be based on only one of the six planar themes
  • Must be very large within the scale of the game environment
  • Must be original to you and all elements must originate from you. You cannot copy graphic material from the game.
  • Can be made in any medium as long as you submit it as a JPG or a PNG
  • Can be made using licensed brushes and textures, but you may not use third-party stock in your entry

All entries will be judged on the following criteria:
