Shadow of the Colossus

This was a doodle that went a bit further and became mostly an illustration.  I never actually played the game. I sat and watched my boyfriend play it while I was working on various other jobs and sketching.  So technically I played through but my boyfriend was my hands on the controls. Let me tell you, I felt so bad for the kid, Wander. Because the absolute SCALE of that game... makes the player so diminutive compared to these hulking silhouettes that fill up the entire landscape.

Detail shot of Wander:

There's something about silent heroes in video games that makes them so incredibly compelling. They go forth and get the job done, to protect the world or a loved one. ...Even if there's an incredibly steep price to pay.
