Come at Me Bro!! by SteveSketches Come at Me Bro!! by SteveSketches
There's just something about the "boss fight". It's that huge climactic battle at the end of a long and arduous journey. After having overcome a thousand trials, the hero must then face the largest challenge of all, using everything he has learned to overcome insurmountable odds. I remember as a kid feeling so much fear, excitement, and accomplishment. I hope to capture that feeling again someday!

4 hours in Photoshop.

Okay, this is amazing and absolutely inspiring. I am completely blown away. You've created this awe-inspiring and terrifying monster that looks like something out of a nightmare. And you have the lone hero ready to face something the size of a mountain. Bravo.

By the way, I needed to come up with a giant and impressive monster for a fanfiction story I was writing and looking at this picture helped to inspire me a lot. So thanks for creating something so amazing that it gives me ideas for my own climatic showdowns.
