Pingo....for some reason I couldn't help but notice that the pics of the faces kinda seem like they are looking at the person under them....O_O

 

I like the partial mask concept on Svetlana btw.

I love these so far. The blue is a beautiful shade and I love the eyes especially the princess. Can't wait to see them finished.

The faces have a really nice gestural painterly look to them.  When seen in tightly cropped photos like that they remind me of Frans Hals' portraits.

Nice start, and an imposing line up of giants wanting paint!  Might be a long time before they're finished, but I figured I'd skip to the end and just start following now.  So I don't have to worry about missing anything epic.  ^_^

Just a few notes.  

 

02599 Frorigh was sculpted by Jason Wiebe, 77107 Svetlana by Derek Schubert, and 77106 Boerigg by Gene van Horne.  I don't know the concept artists' names.  The Otherworld frost giant is sculpted by Paul Muller.  The jester is from Black Scorpion, but I haven'tfound information on who the sculptor is.

 

Reaper's Frorigh figure is pretty front-heavy.  His center of gravity is barely on his base.  When I first assembled him the slightest brush against his backside would send him toppling nose-first.  After considering various options, I decided to mold a small wedge of epoxy putty under the base.  I raised the front edge about 2mm, tapering down to the back edge.  Now he will still go over if you give a good wallop to his backside, but a simple table bump won't do it.

 

I have seen people put Frorigh figures on large bases, which is probably the most sensible option.

Duochrome would be cool to see.  Since I am pretty sure that you would easily pull this off I will watch and learn something.

 

I am already liking the colors btw.  I like browns and blues together though so that's probably got something to do with it.

Definitely interested in watching this one Pingo. I love that the close ups of their faces look like oil paintings!

Love the skin on these. I'll look forward to the duochrome scheme (side note, my phone's autocorrect wanted that phrase to be "monochrome Schenectady" which sounds like maybe a White Stripes coverband), as the brown and blue is triggering all kinds of happiness amongst my rods and cones.

 

Lovely eyes, too.

 

For Fohrig, I'd definitely suggest a wooden round, Luke you can get at Michael's. Easy and heavy.

Seven Nation army was playing as I read this post.

 

 

OT:  Really liking the way the giants are turning out.  Paying close attention as I still have mine to do, and I think that some limited color schemes could be useful.

That jester is going to look interesting...

Love me some brown liner. My washes have never been the same...

Are you familiar with  Goscinny and  Uderzo 's Asterix comics? This picture reminds me of Cacophonix the Bard having another of his usual run ins with Fulliautomatix the smith
