Trickster: Atlomat Picture

Another god from the mythology of my fantasy story in progress, Tricksters. Atlomat was the second oldest spirit, and it was by his hands that all matter in the universe was made.

I tried some new things making Atlomat. He's supposed to look like a big rock monster, but I kinda suck hard at coloring rocks.
