Another Foamfollower by zorm Another Foamfollower by zorm
Wanted to draw his face from the front...and...well, due to some fandom crack, ended up with no jerkin on. Basically, the same giant as here: [link] from this series: [link] .

So he's not your sparkly-warkly prettyboy with that Neanderthal brow and bulky frame, but who cares. Bloody awesome and complex character nevertheless.

Love your giants, particularly, you have a knack for their overall ... "habitus" (sorry cant find a better word, maybe aura??)

I dont know why "happy phoenicians" came to my mind as description of their attitude...

amazing works!!

By the way, you often point out in your info's how the men you draw are not sparkly bishies and so on, but I have to say, I find this guy really handsome! And not only because of his smile and nice hair, but also for the overall warmth and confidence in his pose :)

Goddamn, I love his smile :) He seems like a really cool dude. And as usual the amount of detail is astounding!

Love the detail in your Thomas covenant giants, Do you have any plans to create an image or two based on the Unhomed Seareach massacre or your take on a Caamora?

Thanks!

Yeah, I've had a few mental images about both topics, but the right inspiration hasn't struck yet. The massacre's moreover particularly difficult in terms of scale.

He does have a very happy and gentle nature...until something akin to berserkergang takes over him. XD

Oh wow. I bet he's a beast on the battlefield. Judging by how heavily muscled he is.

Kiitosta. =D

Haha, vähän oli pakko tuota ukonvasaran muotoa muuttaa, ettei näyttäisi ihan suoraan pöllästyltä Kalevalakorun kataloogista. XD

Who is this Foamfollower anyway? I get the feeling that he comes from old Norse Mythology...

He's a 1000-year-old giant, a seafarer and delegate to his people in Coercri. The author *has* based these characters loosely on Norse (and maybe Estonian) mythology, and from the start I imagined their culture rather Viking-ish, excluding the pillaging of random villages.

You would'nt be wrong, but for future characters: Vikings do not have horns on their helmets.
Just in case, it's a common misunderstanding.

I know they don't wear horned helmets. ;) The misconception arises from 20th century grave findings when the excavators mistook the drinking horns for helmet decorations. Thereafter it just became a cliché. Neither were the Vikings ungroomed boors (as the stereotype dictates), but coned their hair, bathed, and trimmed their beards regularly.

Also, Saltheart's not wearing a helmet but a traditional Baltic-Finnic stiff cloth cap called patalakki. :)
