    Woodstroll newly detailed.

    Hi -I've been a member of CA for some time now. Been looking at threads and galleries, and find it a joy. It's such an amazing high quality on the work in here. I finally found the guts to post some myself.
    Here's a little wip of my woodstroll back from his hunt. It's ment for an exhibition i'm having next may. The figure is developing as I go. I've only made a simple preliminary anatomy concept drawing.
    It's made in Chavant clay, and ment for casting later on. I want to cast it in some kind of plastic, eposy, resin or such. But I want the material to have a relativly high specific weight.
    Comments of all sorts are wellcome

    A couple of updates. Added the tail and the staff, and done a bit more detailing.
    I'm thinking about giving him some kind of pants. And I'm still not sure if I want the cow to have it's feets. As it is now, the troll is supposed to have cot them of and discarded them. Hmmm... what to do!??

    I've never been quite happy with the head, so I decappeteded him and started over again. This time i'm going for a more animal/monstrous type of head. The problem with the last, was that it was a bit to much Th. Kittelsen (a classic norwegian folktale artist), and thats something I wanted to avoid.
    Have'nt yet stuck his eares on, and the facial features is just roughed out. Now I'm just working with the allover shape.

    Ok -done some more finalising on the top part. Given him a face and detailed out his back/neck part. I got very happy with this head. I've managed to get far enough away from the traditional norwegian trolls, and I feel his neck now is even more of an really-old-rheumatic-like troll.
    About the casting: I've actually landed on trying to cast it in some sort of fine concrete and patinate it with something. Not sure what yet though. But I think that might give the sculpture the weight and look I'm after. I'm a bit short on money now though, so it might be a month or to until I'll get starting on the casting.

    Thanks. I think so to.
    Still a bit uncertain about the clothing. Might go for some wrapped around hide thingy around his waist.

    This is shaping out to be a really good sculpt! Good call on changing his head. The first head had a nice character, but the new head is so much more interesting, and really improves the design of the character as a whole. Nice sense of weight and anatomy, with his love handles and pot belly. The fine detailing is going quite nice so far as well.
    Great work so far. I'm definitely going to be watching this progress.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm starting to be happy with it myself to I've just gotten my alcohol torch by mail today, so the detailing will go a bit smoother from now on I guess.

    Long time nothing done. Yea, it's been a while since I worked on this now. I haven't had the money to by the necessary materials, so I have concentrated on painting (have two exhibitions next spring). But yesterday I took a look at my troll again. I finally decided that he should not have any clothes. I want to keep the feeling that it's posing for a classical nude. So I've given him his rightful equipment. And seeing as it's an very old troll, I've tweaked the anatomy. Further more I've detailed some more on it's stomach, shoulders, face and back. Given it some more root-like look. Well, since Christmas is right around the corner, I'm not sure if I can afford the materials to finish it this side of new year. Anyways, be seeing ya all
