    Define interesting, friend. Or why is your drawing interesting while all others fail to amuse your desire for interest?

    So here's my wip (I still have some work on the design before I get into the rendering step, not sure about the helmet and I have to add little pelts and human sized objects to it but the general idea is done).

    Story:
    When we think of giant we think of something stupid, slow and gigantic but I wanted to give a twist to this. In the norse mythology giants were actually slightly smarter than the Norse gods (like Loki and Odin...) even though they were pretty dumb. What I wanted to create here is a giant hero, like the giant version of Hercules.

    Ktordinn's two handed sword was forged by a god and his moose-ram-deer antlers he took from a mighty gigantic beast he slayed. Even though he looks intimidating, he is known for his patience and wisdom (well, for giants). Most giants rely solely on raw strength but Ktordinn uses both agility and strength to defeat mythical beasts.
    He learned the ways of the sword and agility from his human friend Raktir. They met near the cave of a mythical bear which they both needed to slay and dueled to see who was to claim the bear. Using Ktordinn's strength against himself, Raktir defeated the giant, but while they were busy fighting, a third hero slayed the bear. Both had to leave empty handed and somehow this common misfortune bonded them. Ktordinn thought Raktir how to properly use his strength and Raktir taught him the ways of the sword.

    My brain broke because of thinking a concept.

    I imagined a dragon at first. But then started to realize that it is cliche so I thought of adding some void theme on it then I realized again that it's missing something so I may edit it later. The tail's not included tho. So here's my first wip for the Burrowed Void Dragon. Also, I'm starting to think off adding it wings (just a small one, it will be stucked up when he burrows unto the ground) and some spikes over his spine. Will be edited sooner tho.

    Dune worm burrowed style I guess with a dragonic and void feel on it. I just can't think of any concept.

    Hurrdur!
    WiP

    Lore: (I know it's not needed, but meh, I want to)

    * A giant blob that loved humans very much to the point that it imitated their facial expression.

    * Just its whole form alone can fill up a small lake (dry).

    * One day it learned how to further its imitating abilities, and started morphing itself into the form of human.

    * Maintaining the form's difficult, it ended up not looking very good. But the blob seemed happy with it and kept that appearance as its default.

    * The blob was once adored, but now attacked by humans.

    * In its "human" form, it usually keep its "face" tilted-up so it wouldn't easily distort(?)(is that the word for it?).

    Wow amazing.

    Though the number of teeth on the right face is not equal on left. But I guess it is on the angle.
