Shadow of the Colossus - GA-HQ Art Contest by ProcerDeCrepusculum Shadow of the Colossus - GA-HQ Art Contest by ProcerDeCrepusculum
Hello my peeps! :iconwithsprinklesplz:

Here I have my latest fan artwork based off the highly praised PlayStation 2 classic Shadow of the Colossus. :iconspongebobsquarep-plz: Never played it? :iconspongebobscreamplz: If not, I recommend checking it out. :iconspongebobhappyplz: It is a beautiful game with a rich atmosphere that I personally admire. :iconspongebobleleleplz: And the soundtrack is fantastic too in my opinion. :iconspongebobsquareplz: But enough of me praising the game! :iconsoilediitplz: Why did I make it anyway? :icon030bobplz: And, perhaps a better question, why is there life bars ect. In the picture?! :iconwhynoplz:

Well, this is a picture I did specifically for :icongame-art-hq:'s screenshot art contest. :iconspongebobnoesplz: The idea is to create an illustration that is modeled off a video game screenshot while still maintaining the artist's own style. :iconomgspongebobplz: My plain was to produce an art piece that has aesthetics of an illustration while still having the qualities of a screenshot. :iconspongebobrlyplz: Furthermore, I wanted to present it in a perspective that was impossible to see in the game. :iconineeditplz: So the addition of Agro actually being in this shot of the first Colossus battle for example is by design. :icondatspongebobplz:

I hope you guys all enjoy and I'll cross my fingers hoping my piece is a winner… :iconwhosagoodboyplz:

This is possibly the greatest work i have seen for Shadow of the Colossus. I have played the game on PS2 as well as the HD remastered for the PS3. Looking at this gives me chill bumps alone just from knowing how the story goes from here. Plus the paint style you added is breath taking. Love it :). Could I have permission to use this amazing artwork in something I am trying to create as well? I will give credit to you of course if so.

I loved this game, it carried so much emotion and tension with barely any dialogue.

Excellent picture btw

Wow! This is brilliant! Professional limited edition art booklets for games are sometimes like this I believe. #1And Ahahah Spongebob for the win! I am a dummy! Just got done watching that actually lol! Squidward's probably my favorite character though.

I've heard of this game but I have never had a chance to play it before, I know I know, I seem to miss out a lot when it comes to good games don't I, ^^; I'll have  a lot of catching up to do on that in the future. You know this gives me a great idea, when playing games if paused they should go into like an artwork screen that is exactly the same as what it was before you paused it that would be kind of cool if possible. Anyway keep up the great work!

No idea why, but the first thing that comes to mind when looking at this picture is Two Steps From Hell music!!  Now if only video games could look this beautiful! (I lie...some do now a days).
