Calling the Giants by Lizzy-John Calling the Giants by Lizzy-John
was trying to do something with a proper background and came out with this wierd junkyard-ish summoning scene...did it I think a week ago or so as more insomnia work. I've tried to improve it a bit since but...:(

Why call the giants?
Good pic but I'm unsure of what the story is.

Reminds me of the solemn giants from Scrolls. Makes them seem pretty cool now.

I first saw this about 5 years ago. Now I'm pursuing a life as an illustrator, and I still find this painting really inspiring. Truly this is one of my all time favs I've seen on deviantart.

I found this image long ago. I love it, but it means something different for me, I think. The way I see it, that boy is surrounded by giants and he's overcome by the world around him (at least, that's what it looked to me when I saw it in tiny size). Probably, neither he's a boy neither those giants represent a threat for him; but that's the way I like to imagine the scene. Thank you for your art.

Now to save the world from its imminent collision with the moon.

Very nice image. I like the way the stone giants ended up rather flat, like slabs.

Probably heard this a million times but it reminds me of a Zelda game. Not just "calling the giants" but this picture gives off a "melancholy" atmosphere like the game sort of did. Yet, the picture is so original. Very nic job I really love it. ouo

Your drawing is indeed reaaally inspiring. So inspiring, I've based my new short comic book on it (if of course it doesn't bother you, course when I'll upload it on deviant, I'll give all credits to you :) but tell me if its any bother whatsoever!)
