Here is my entry for the Rift Element Colossus Contest here on devArt.
I chose the element water because I really love water, it has the power to create and destroy life on earth.
I want to use for my monster an animal they currently living in our seas, a octopus.
That what you see here is, that the colossus creates water planets from the sea around him. It use the planets to attack the harbor/port with the lighthouse.
I used Photoshop CS5 for this
I hope you like it
added some details on the tentacles; make the clouds more realistic; added more contrast at the red eyes
