greenish blue troll???

I was trying out a new green-blue watercolour pencil I bought.  I used it to tint the page before drawing over it with normal coloured pencils.

Giant troll

Pigment ink, A5, 135gsm drawing block paper.

This was an experiment with a different style. I wanted to see how I could do something from a more design orientation. It is a simple sketch.

Munching on a cow....or what's left of it.

I wanted to throw a watercolor wash over this piece but I liked it so much I think I'll leave it alone.


Ink. A5 size.

Troll On His Throne

Seated and looking hungry. Troll Throne

The Troll's right foot on the bottom left of the image, had to be basically inked and lined into oblivion because I made a major mistake. By the time I reached that corner of the page I was already unconscious - literally - I don't believe I heard a word anyone around me said and we were drawing in a group! I added leather sandals to the right foot because I bought a Roman Army book from Osprey Books that same day and was reading it just before I started this. When my mind went blank, I drew the sandals.

Ink + Watercolor wash. A5 size.

sun troll

I totally got my inspiration from ...well, D&D.  At least in the name anyway.  You know like how they have sun elves and such in D&D? This is a sun troll! Though I know it's like, a paradox of sorts because trolls are supposed to burst in the sun and stuff. but whatevs :D

Trolless from Herr Mannelig

Herr Mannelig is a medieval Swedish ballad that tells the story of a female troll who is in love with a guy called Mannelig but he rejected her because she's not a Christian.  I first heard of the story from an adaptation by a German symphonic metal band (though it's sung in Italian!), Haggard.

The writing in Italian is lyrics from the song.  It says:
Se tu fossi una donna cristiana [If you were a Christian woman]
Riceverei volentieri regali così, [I would gladly receive gifts]
Ma io so che sei il peggiore troll [But I know that you are the worst troll]
Figlio degli spiriti maligni [Son of the malignant spirits]

wiki entry:

I was going to wait until I drew something better for this but Shyue Chou says doodles are fine too.
