Entry for RIFT game character contest
Method: Digital illustration using Adobe Photoshop

An entry to an online competition in which the challenge was to design a large colossal creature for the online game RIFT. RIFT is an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) in which rifts open up in the world unleashing monsters into the zone, followed by the biggest and meanest of them all, the colossus.  This life colossus concept was inspired by the Ophiocordyceps unilateralis fungus, an unpleasant fungus that ‘mind-controls’ ants by infecting their brains. The large, once gentle reptile became victim to such a fungus and is now driven into a senseless rage.
