Been working on this for a while, but figured it's in such a state I finally have the guts to show it. Trying to finish this someday, although I'm notoriously slow and prone to fill every blank space with itty bitty detail...

This is very good. I especially like Pitchwife's face. My only comment is the size of the happy couple. I am thinking he was about half the size of her.

Would love to see more of your work.
Thanks for showing it.

Thanks, glad you like. Very Happy

Well, this is how I imagined him in his native stance (about as erect as possible with that back), so vertically, he'd reach approximately the First's midriff, if she jumped up. I've drawn a fair deal of Norse giants and ogre-ish characters in the past, so I may have some deep-rooted peculiarities concerning proportions, but even so, I received the impression that he'd, for instance, retain the shoulder span of a 'normal' male Giant despite the cramped chest.

A little bit of crispy weather never harms a Giant. Wink

Definitely planning to draw more TC characters, perhaps I'll try my hands on Honninscrave or Foamfollower after this piece.

Zorm, again you blow me away with your images! My only critical comment would be the size disparity between her hands and his.... Wouldn't their hands be closer to the same size? She looks almost delicate in this image, and one could NEVER say The First was delicate! Razz

But I do love their positions, and the fact that her armor is set aside for the moment.... Shows the love and trust between them.

Thanks for sharing, and keep up the fabulous work!

Heh, like I said in one of the replies above, I have some deep-rooted stylistic oddities much due to the fact that I have drawn truckloads of characters from the Norse and Finnish mythologies, with Giants often basking in the limelight. I tend to give male Giants massive hands, wrists, and shoulder spans, as opposed to the females whose scaled proportions would appear closer to those of human women.

However, this image is far from ready and may yet become subjected to some major overhauling, even concerning proportions. Wink I see quite a few mistakes that need fixing anyhow. It was among the very first pics I ever concocted of Pitchwife and the First, and even his face has changed slightly since then, not to mention the design of her armor.

Delicacy: actually, I received the impression from the books that the First might not have emerged from the stockiest gene pool of Giants (Names tell tales? 'Gossamer' vs. 'Heft'?). What was the word with which Pitchwife described her; 'lissome'? Smile

Looks like the direct link is broken, good the DA one remains.

By the way, I mentioned that some of your artworks, like "The First colored" are only in the Laborium in the Album - many people don't even visit it and it's closed to the non-users.

There, that's how you overwork yourself - haven't I told you the works you're most unsure of are above the highest dreams for many, many people who struggle to draw a simplest cartoonish sketch?

Er. Embarassed

Well, I *did* post the First to the Gallery just now. Razz What else was there; I must have unintentionally passed by that particular post or paragraph? A quick scan through my folders doesn't reveal the existence of this thread's missing image, so must be on some external drive. Have a faint recollection of starting to remodel the characters to correspond better to my present visualizations of them.

See the post above. I have no idea where the picture I began redrawing sometime later last year skulks. This specimen's nigh-on 1,5 years old, one of my first attempts, and the characters have been much honed since. Laughing

Here's Frostheart Grueburn's wonderful talent on display with this study on the First with a little Pitchwife thrown in (must be logged in; the link is to the Laborium of the Album):
