Ettin Tokens

It took a lot longer to get these finished than I would’ve liked, but they turned out fairly well, I think.

Next, I’ll be posting another illustration from Whispers of Heaven.

I found myself wondering how ettins go about getting their hair cut while I was drawing this series. Even with a second head, it’s not like they can turn and look at the other one very well, nor crane behind to see the back. So I gave them all pretty rough haircuts.

I never think of 2-headed giants when I hear the term “ettin” - instead it makes me think of Stargate’s goa'uld (which, of course, were called that by the Norse-style human cultures in that show precisely because they have “2 heads” - just one is inside the other). Possibly I’ve just watched that show too many times.
