Piercing the Umbra by Immp Piercing the Umbra by Immp
Sadly the only new Shadow of the Colossus print I had available this year. There were others but sadly they did not make it. May they rest in peace.

I figured I'd do Valus, the classic first encounter, since everyone....EVERYOOOOOOONNNNNNEEEE(Gary Oldman) should know it well. I think I titled it cleaving the umbra in the art show but...haha there's no cleaving in this game! I know everyone likes my Gaius (Baltar?) but this one is my favorite, for I believe it is more dynamic and the composition is better....maybe.

I'm sure I could do a poll to see what colossus I should do next but I'm sure it'd just come out 100% Phalanx(not the blob shield!) ..or maybe Malus. You know it to be true.

I like the final colossus (forget his name) but that one was just MASSIVE even by Colossus standards and was wearing a building and was even chained to the mountain...somehow, and he could still kill you. It was like a giant nightmarish wizard.

Considering his name was Magus, I'd say that description is accurate.

I love how wander is standing where the light breaks between the colossus' arm and leg. Very good idea. Well done!

I love this game, simply epic.
The first time I played and saw valus, I thought:'' Wow, how will I kill a giant such as this?''

Already the colossus when they saw me, they thought:'' What? I have to fight with this ant?'' Haha.

Anyway, great picture. Ever wanted to make these arts in photoshop.

I just bought this print today at Anime Boston! I must say, you were the best collected gentleman there, which is partially why I wanted your autograph (though mostly because of the gorgeous art you did for my favorite game). I'm logging onto my old Deviantart from 2005 or something just to say cheers, and keep up the amazing work!

I didn't even know the individual Colossi were given names... I've always referred to them by number or short description.

:iconimmp:
Immp Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010  Student Digital Artist
yeah I don't think they ever referred to them by name in the game.

1). The Minotaur "Valus" [Minotaurus Colossus]
2). Taurus Major "Quadratus" [Taurus Magnus]
3). Earth Knight "Gaius" [Terrestris Veritas]
4). Equus Prime "Phaedra" [Equus Bellator Apex]
5). Delta Phoenix "Avion" [Avis Praeda]
6). The Goliath "Barba" [Belua Maximus]
7). Sea Dragon "Hydrus" [Draco Marinus]
8). Wall Shadow "Kuromori" [Parietinae Umbra]
9). Storm Echo "Basaran" [Nimbus Recanto]
10). Sand Tiger "Dirge" [Harena Tigris]
11). Flame Guardian "Celosia" [Ignis Excubitor]
12). Great Basilisk "Pelagia" [Permagnus Pistrix]
13). Trail Drifter "Phalanx" [Aeris Velivolus]
14). Destruction Luster "Cenobia" [Clades Candor]
15). The Sentinel "Argus" [Praesidium Vigilo]
16). Grand Gigas "Malus" [Grandis Supernus]

Latin names for science!

They put a guide and an artbook under the same cover? That's like saying "I'll put this roadkill in this half of the pie and the apples in this half."... 's just wrong. >.>

It's ok! It was all japanese, so it was basically just an art book to me.

Yeah... ^^; Still...
Seems wrong to me, to mix awesome artbook content with don't-even-want-to-play-the-game guides...
That's like aimbots on fps games... I don't get who would use a guide for a puzzle platforming adventurey type game.

I've gotten my knickers all in a twist over the idea that such a thing exists! :P

I find this utterly more awesome for the fact that I picked up the game just last night and beat him.

It took me 20 minutes without a book to figure out wtf I was doing.

Have to say, this is a rather awesomeprint too. Specially with the I WILL DEFEAT YOU TO REVIVE MY GIRLFRIEND pose
