I really love the way you did their teeth, Inkthinker–they're very real, but still get that menacing feel across. Good job!!!

Whoa, I was scanning the new posts and then BAM! I was terrified for a few seconds,(I am the type of person that will shy away from scary movies and rather see a happy-sing-along film) before I was able to recover and actually look at the koloss =D.  Great job even though it freaked me out. (That's a compliment) since they are supposed to be scary.  I love the rips and tears in the skin, very menacing and freaky. The eyes are awesome too.

Yep, Inkthinker, those sure are creepy! I looked at the line work, and I think the details read a little better there, especially the squished nose of the tight-skinned Koloss. Blue skin is always tough to do and make feel natural. I like what you've done, and the contrast with the muscles underneath is pretty cool.

The pic of the kollos on the other page looked kinda weird to me. I imagined the kollos with really tiny eyes but hey that's just my opinion. I like everyone's pics of Vin by the way, very realistic (except the one in the bathing suit  :-\ bit awkward)

I kind of agree with Bastille. Ink's koloss don't match my image really at all; however, I can still see the skill that went into them, and appreciate them as other people's vision.

Other peoples visions. Hm. Shaggy's right. On this post I've seen allot of complaining because the pic "isn't up to there standards." It should be how you see it.  :)

And quite frankly, if everything (especially art) that was created had to be up to 'everyone's standards'…the world would suck. All art would take on a general, common look. So without the different opinions, feelings and visions of different people, our culture would be almost…barbaric. (In the sense that art in our culture is virtually nonexistent.)

Inkthinker and Skar have inspired me to speedpaint a koloss. It turned out more icky than scary, I think. I was hoping to make it more threatening looking.

I applied some things I recently learned about color (from work and from the latest ImagineFX magazine). I think they prevented the image from feeling monochromatic and helped the blue skin really pop while still feel like it is being lit.

Dude, that's just cool.  I love the way you managed to convey the feeling of saggy skin and wrinkles with simple, broad, suggestive brush-strokes.

It reminds of all those cool book covers from the 60s and 70s that my Dad had on the bookshelves when I was growing up.
