Something's been bothering me and I don't know if you would know the answer. Frost Giant baby Loki had ears, so do a Frost Giant's ears fall off due to the extreme cold or are they removed like a fighting dog's ears are docked as a warriors right of passage or is Loki a totally different sub-type of Frost Giant because of his small size? I might be nitpicking but I can't get the reasoning out of my head.

I really like the fact that you guys did not go with the typical bearded viking giant from the mythology. Great design :) !!

I wish kenneth branagh had gone a little further in his concept for the Frost giants. Beings more technically advanced, hulkish in body type and weapons that didn't look like icicles but more like diamond. Still enjoyed the movie.

Really elegant design on these, Boss!
What really reads immediately with these Frost Giants is stoicism and intelligence, then you kind of realize that the guy is as big as a wal-mart

Beautiful work on that trunk, particularily the abdomenal area. Really the body type is what wrangles you into thinking differently; he isnt scowling and hulking - he's more lithe and fluid.
The armor also compliments the idea with plating around that cerebellum pulling you into the eyes and forehead.
Just really excellent and tasteful, dude.

Keep rokken like dokken

Brad! I've put quite some thought into designing something that's different from the Frosties in the comics (which for the most part look like blue painted ogres to me) or the typical movie monsters, so it's great to get that kind of feedback from you. Thanks for dropping by and taking your time!
Looking forward to your next pieces!
