The Slumbering Tyrant by MoulinBleu The Slumbering Tyrant by MoulinBleu
A knight riding his hound steed chances upon the fabled Slumbering Tyrant as he emerges from his thousand-year dormant state.

This one was tough for me, still not 100% satisfied with it, but with the help of my friends, it's definitely come a long way. I'm actually proudest of the subtle details on the tower, so zoom in and turn up your brightness!

Thousand year slumber? Well, that would certainly explain all the roots and stuff that seem to be growing over the creature... Nice work on rendering that overgrowth. Amoung the many other well rendered aspects...
