El'nik: Colossal beast know as "living mountains" that roam the plains, slowly and undesturbed. It is said that the blood from these beast could be synthesize to make a really valuble potion for producing rubies. They are normally slow, but when angered they can be frightly fast for their size, shaking the very earth. However, it's not really a difficult task to bring these Earth Colossus down. They're not very intelligent and their great age makes them crumple easily. But be warned: the bulls are know to fly into a beserk rage in which they're seldomed stager. Range/magic based classes are best when dealing with this terrible beast, with warrior classes providing defense.
As you can see I'm entering this picture for the RIFT contest as is. This picture is the colored version. This is a battle between an El'nik and a growing group of players in a mysty mountainous area within the RIFT world.
You can probably tell El'nik was inpired by Shadow of the Colossus, but I also drew inspiration from Tree beard (LOR) and some of the creatures from The Dark Crystal as well as from some wicked looking boss creatures from RIFT itself. I choosen El'nik to be an earth element Colossus because Colossus are ofthen associated with the earth and because I'm taking the meaning "taking on a mountain" to a whole new level.
Also I should mention, that's a stone mask it's wearing with glass eyeshields...to prevent birds and such from flying into it's eyes as it moves.
