Sandstorm Colossus -Earth by WesTalbott Sandstorm Colossus -Earth by WesTalbott
My entry for the Rift Colossus competition. This beast is encrusted with rare gems that prompt the players to defeat it for a hefty reward. It also has the ability to conjure up massive sandstorms that create total darkness around it's victims.

Pretty cool earth colossus design. I wouldn't say it's very creative, primarily because most of the earth colossus designs have used this same basic body type, but you did some unique stuff with the design anyway, so I'd say it's pretty awesome. :)

I could see this thing pulling itself out of the sands in Shimmersand's Fire Sand Desert. This would be an amazing zone event boss.

I can honestly see this being a great monster to use in an epic crafting rift. All those gems and I'm sure there is metal in there somewhere. Would be great for crafters, not to mention an epic battle over all.
