Shadow of the Colossus Concept (personal project)
This series of images by Juliana done for a school project depicts her vision of a Shadow of the Colossus v 2.0. The images depict a heroine, who goes on a journey to prevent the impending doom of her village at the hands of the colossi by slaying them with an ancient sword.
The culture of the heroine hails from is aesthetically inspired from the Ainu culture, with her garments adorning the intricate embroidery in the Ainu style, who believe they to help protect against spirits. This is a slight change from the original game which seems to have been heavily inspired by culture and setting of ancient Central Asia and the Eurasian steppes.
Unlike Wander, the hero of the original game, the unnamed heroine for Juliana’s concept opts to wield dual axes as oppose to a sword for her weapon of choice - though she does make use of a steed like the original protagonist and will also, at some point, make use of an “ancient sword”.
Her journey is intended to see her travel to an overgrown temple, a cave, a lake as well as other locales on her hunt for the colossi, with the monochrome lime tint maintained throughout.
>The final colossus is depicted to be an especially massive four legged creature, somewhat resembling an elephant. It’s extra large size is reasoned to be due to its age in the story, with it being encountered while on its way to its birthplace to die.

- The closest I could find on Amazon to the watercolour set I use is the Sakura brand of Koi Assorted WaterColours Field Set.
- Just use any old toothbrush. I used to use the ones that my dentist would give me after a visit, just because those were kind of cheap and I wouldn’t actually use them anyways.
- I use acrylic for flicking and highlights because watercolour-whites tend to fade when they dry.
- Also, remember to keep your hands clean, because nothing’s worse than smudging graphite into your watercolours and then unable to get it out.
- Try to avoid black and white when possible. They tend to dull the colours and it loses that watercolouring lustre.
Since I started watercolouring again for my daily sketches, I’ve gotten a lot of asks/dA notes on if I could give a tutorial on watercolouring and also more specific questions that overlapped each other, so I decided to do a semi guide/tips/answering thing.
I actually started watercolouring before I went into digital medium, so I have a bit of personal experience, but I am essentially self-taught when it comes to watercolouring since there weren’t a lot of watercolour tutorials online back then to begin with, so I cannot promise that these are the absolute correct way of doing things.
Hope it helps anyways :)
Hopefully this will look just as good on me as it does on the floor ^.^ so far this is my absolute favorite coordinate.
