In the RIFT Create a Colossus Contest, we asked you to design the biggest and baddest boss you could imagine. We've seen some of the creepiest, strangest, and most horrific monsters imaginable, and we love them!

The judges have narrowed down the entries to 25 semi-finalists. From these 25, the final three winners will be selected by Trion's creative team!

Once judging is completed and the final three winners are announced, all 25 semi-finalists will receive a copy of RIFT and a 3 month Premium Membership to deviantART. The three winners will be receiving cash, Wacom tablets, and other prizes.

It seems to me that anyone complaining about this contest are just shitty because their entry didn't get chosen

i like 2 or three from here, Touch of Death, Air, The Magister, and Death Colossus, (lol was 4) but i'm also kind of dissapointed, i saw great designs that were a lot better than some of these, at least in idea, don't want to think that it was more worthy the finished details, than the colossus originality or the idea behind it.

Anyway, congratulations to the winners. Well Done, and also great contest !!!

great entries... but sadly it turned out to be another popularity contest in the end, the dA staff were probably too lazy to browse through the thousands of entries and just picked form the first 5 pages of the overall most popular entries, thus giving the "not so knows" dA artists an unfair chance and the "already popular" dA artists more fame and of course better stuff to use to make their art. so in the end, it all came down to who had more watchers than the actual concept :(

Don't go and complain about how the judges do their work. Your theory doesn't make sense because you've made the assumption that all the well established artist were on the first few pages, which is incorrect, just because an entry is 'popular' doesn't mean that it's from an established artist, it just happens to be, that better, more estblished artists produce better work

And another thing. Your fatty glutton has been done to death in many other games. It's cliche. It's just a fat humanoid with blood stains. It also doesn't look particularly "colossal". It could be 6 ft tall or 600 ft tall. Likewise your evil demon with ram's horns is a tired cliche that dates back to the middle ages. I think lack of originality in your concepts is what did you in rather than some nasty politics or incompetent judges. I'd say the judges made the right call in your case. Just my opinion mind you.

i wasn't talking about my submissions not being chosen, i've seen some pretty cool concepts by other people, in the contest. i've played a ton of games, not to mention most of the top mmo's and i know exactly what would look cool to battle against (again, i'm not referring to my submissions). there were some of the top 25 that i totally liked, but i'm just saying that what's the use of joining a contest if what you've worked for very hard wasn't even judged?

oh and btw, making an account today, just to reply to my post, isn't very cool.
