Thanks for looking!
They DO tend to get worked up.

I don't remember what kind of time was involved in this one.
probably 10-12 hours.

Thanks for looking, sir!
About the tusks (not fangs), check over an elephant skull, the tusks are the same on Trolls. The tusks are like huge horizontal canine teeth on the upper jaw. My sketch and final were based on concept art supplied by Blizzard and they okayed the work.
Anyway, thanks for keeping me awake.

Few things can match the homicidal tendencies of a pissed off troll.

The bloodlust is awesomely portrayed here - insta-fav! ^_^

They DO tend to tear things up when excited!
However a sturdy 2-handed mace and high crit rating can simmer them down most of the time.

Thanks for stopping by!
Great pencil work over at your gallery!!

Heh - unfortunately so, lest the blue bugger is fast enough, but that's another matter.

And thanks for the compliment, it honours me deeply! ^_^

Thank you! I admire your work.
As for my horses...Well after about 4 hours of ctrl+z in a drawing program I eventually get a decent horse out. Haha.
You should give drawing horses a go, if you do them like you do your other work, wowee that'd be amazing!

Now THAT is what a Troll should look like.
I'm going to have to look through the rest of your art considering I'm not familiar with the TCG

Funny thing.
I picked up a box of 8x10's of the art for the TCG cards, and this picture was in there.
So now I have an 8x10 of this.

I can't believe how much I lucked out.

Excellent!
Whenever I'm able to help or encourage someone to further their talent and disengage from the herds of knuckle dragging pithecanthropoids its better than a pay check!
Thanks for taking the time to sleuth me out and comment.
Thanks also for displaying your work. I'm inspired by the Space Worms and "Sky" 1 & 2.
Your work on the shoes is a blast! What does a person use as a medium on those fabrics?
