Otherworld Miniatures have recently been publishing a series of WIP of a miniature they are currently working on, but now we finally get to see what it is. I hope you brought an umbrella as it’s about to pour thanks to this Storm Giant.
The idea of a giant stirring up the clouds with his trident is a great one straight out of Greek mythology and Otherworld look like they’re doing a fairly good job in creating a dramatic piece to do the image justice.
Having said that, there are some elements of this WIP that I think need to be worked on, especially the giant’s arms. It might be the photo angle, but they look out of proportion to the rest of him. They also look unnaturally stiff, which serves to undermine the life and motion captured by his hair and beard.
Be sure to let us know what you think of Otherworld’s new giant.
