This week's "Sketches" looks at the biggest Beast in Onslaught, Krosan Colossus by Kev Walker.

1. Art Description

These are the instructions given to the artist:

"Location: Krosan Forest
Action: giant bipedal Beast towering over the Krosan forest. It uses its bonespur claws to scoop up a handful of the forest to munch on."

2. Sketch

This is the preliminary sketch submitted by Kev. The Onslaught team noted that the birds in the art would need to be bigger--not to make the Beast look smaller by comparison, but so that they would be visible once the art was shrunk to card size.

3. Final Art

Here is a large version of the final piece.

4. Card

Finally, here is the card as it appears in the set.
