Dave Trampier Thursday - Fire Giant

Ok, so it's Friday. Apologies for not getting this up yesterday, I realize I am a day late but here is another beauty from Tramp (and hey, you can't complain too much, I did give you two for one last Thursday!).

 

This week is my favorite from Trampier's series of giants which he drew for the Monster Manual. I never much cared for the most of the Trampier giants honestly. The Hill giant always reminded me of a big, dumb, doofus and not something tremendously scary (as it should be I guess). The Stone giant always looked too much like Lurch. The Cloud giant, well, let's just say he was a little effeminate for me. But the Fire giant, ah, the Fire giant, majestic!

 

This illustration is probably the reason my younger self wanted to include Fire giants everywhere and anywhere. In fact Trampier's fearsome Fire giant illustration is probably responsible for carnage on an unmitigated scale, as I remember wiping out many a party with it as my inspiration.

  1. It's a cool illo; I like the sharp teeth and fearsome demeanor.

    My only hangup as a kid is that he is positioned exactly like a baseball player - complete with the bat (sword) and the helmet. And the helmet is even shaped kind of like a batting helmet.

    I'm sure you'll appreciate my clear, lucid contribution to this post. ;-)

  4. Do you understand there's a 12 word sentence you can communicate to your crush... that will trigger deep feelings of love and instinctual attractiveness for you buried within his chest?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, adore and protect you with all his heart...

    12 Words That Fuel A Man's Desire Impulse

    This impulse is so built-in to a man's mind that it will drive him to try better than before to do his best at looking after your relationship.

    Matter of fact, fueling this all-powerful impulse is so binding to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that once you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

    ...You will instantly notice him expose his heart and soul for you in such a way he haven't experienced before and he'll distinguish you as the one and only woman in the universe who has ever truly appealed to him.
