my version of a life colossus for the Rift Game contest. done. for submission, and made it just in time for the contest's deadline.
i am not fully satisfied with the result. i might tweak it later (or after the contest is done)
the colossus is composed of different plant/tree lifeforms all formed and joined together to form a single entity. it is all held up by a sentient life force situated in its chest area, and eminates an aura throughout its entire form and it serves as the guardian of the forests.
(damn those little newbie people running for their online lives)
it attacks using its large vine limbs, that also serves as its defense against attackers and can easily regenerate its body parts using vegetative/plant life forms in its proximity.
