How to draw: Sarah Mason.
1. Get your basic shapes!
• I like to start with a snowman-shape. Make sure the bottom circle is slightly larger than the top one to keep her jaw heavy.
2. Sketch out the basic shape of her head.
• Add a little bump for her brow ridge.
• Massive and square are keywords when describing Sarah’s head in prose.
• Notice that her head tapers slightly as you go from her jaw to her crown.
3. Add in the facial features!
• Her nose is large, broad and hooked. I use a big, slanted C-stroke to make it.
• Eyes, mouth, and ears are small and close-set.
• Lower lip is full.
• Chin and cheekbones are very broad.
• Keep her brow ridge low and heavy. She has a natural scowl.
4. Add the neck and hair!
• Eyebrows are thick blocks that taper with her expressions.
• Hair is thick and floofy! Lots of messy, spiky bangs and locks falling over her shoulders. Waist-length in the back.
• Neck is short, muscular and wider than her head. “Bull-necked” is not an exaggeration.
• Trapezius muscles are very large and sloping; giants oft clear trails in mountainous terrain and need powerful shoulders to move derbies.
• Collarbone is broad and heavily-curved.
• Extremely broad-shouldered. Almost 5 heads wide when viewed from the front.
• Chest is broad and barrel-shaped, with well-developed pectoral muscles. Giants and half-breeds have larger lungs and hearts relative to their bodies than normal humans.
• Female giants are flat-chested unless actively nursing, another trait Sarah retains from her ancestors.
