| Another neat little project I started a few years back and recently
This female giant stands about 60mm tall. Scale can be determined by
the skull and Reaper weapon piece on her base.
She may be wearing furs, but it's still a bikini. So I tried for it to be
a late summer, high altitude feel to the base terrain. Which was decorated with rocks,
sand, flock, and some dried flowers. There is also a rock sculpted out of green-yellow
epoxy, with a design on it.
The base is 54mm hand-varnished circle of oak, bought unfinished in a multi-pack
at a craft store. She is actually held to the oak disk with a wood screw, and
super-glue, and epoxy, and more glue....
Some parts of this model are very rough. Almost as if the sculptor had not
smoothed it enough, or maybe it was just bad casting. The head is also too small in
proportion to the body, making her look very mannish. Still, female giants are
quite unusual, so who knows how they are proportionally. :p
I was very pleased with how the face and weapon came out. The loincloth
was a challenge, because I had no idea what to draw on it. So little feminine
swirls and patterns it is. The woodgrain on the weapon might be too small for her
scale-wise... But,.. ah...she is done now. :p
She looks a bit like Sophia Loren to me. Or maybe I have been watching to many
classic films. :)
