    another goddamn troll!!

    ok I might be posting this one a bit early but the cheap liquor is speaking for me tonight gents!

    This one is based on the legend that trolls turn to stone if sunlight touches them. This wandering viking stumbles across an old specimen of this legend. hope you likey. i'm going back to draw.

    mitch


    another goddamn troll!!

    great lighting dude. But the biceps and the lower arm on his right side don't really go together, do they? Other than that - brilliant...

    Until I read the description, I thought the troll just turned to stone when the viking showed up (like he popped up to get the little guy, but forgot it was daytime). For that aged look, I would imagine the very sharp corners and thin edges (like the nails) would be affected by some erosion.

    Very sweet rendering and line work, though.

    Can you make this one in color. I would love that!
    I really like the hands, verry nice.

    Wow. This just made my day. You have NO idea. You don't paint this. It's perfect as is.

    very cool. love the expression on the trolls face, and the chosen angle of the hands and the over all detail is just splending. great work.

    Nicely done, my only comment is whether the stone which appears to have some small cracks in it would be able to support the extremities without snapping off. I think it would be interesting to show a very ancient petrified troll thats been broken or whatever.

    Other than my own little ideas, I love the drawing, very well done.
