I like allegories so I painted giant people frozen in ice for the last few millenia - it is only now that while the ice melts due to global warming, they are starting to thaw. What will the future bring when the giants emerge?

Photoshop and Wacom tablet, +-20 hours? A couple of days.

I love a piece that tells a very definite story and yet leaves a lot of mystery. This piece is kind of fascinating. It's really set my imagination going, and making me want to know more. I think you have masterfully captured the feel of this piece. You're a great storyteller as much as a visual artist . Thank you for this

Does this in anyway have anything to do with the biblical Nephilim? There's evidence suggesting they existed

Wow :0 I just loooove that woman in the back, how the ice and its transparency gets all together and merges, I dunno, it just looks lovely, I love it. I do agree with someone at the beginning that said that there was something wrong, perhaps in perspective, among all the girls I would say, but the quality, the details, the whole imagery is so exquisite, it could be only a minor thing. Perhaps something to look into the future? But yeah, the image is wonderful, beautiful! :)
