YOU HAVE BEEN TROLLED by socar YOU HAVE BEEN TROLLED by socar
I was influenced by these artists, lately; hopefully, it shows up, as they are really good:

Shapes: [link]

Anyway, this is sort of a self-portrait; a friend of mine calls me "the Troll"--this is not a reference to Internet trolling, but to Nethack.

Maybe you would like to see this artist? Jean Dulieu. He's one of my favourites. Look him up and one of his characters, (Eucalypta) looks a lot like your troll.
I like your pen strokes!
And THANKS for the link to John Bauer.

Thanks! It's pen & ink. The coloured inks are Winsor & Newton, and the black is just normal Chinese ink.

I definitely see the Bauer influence. I think Bauer influenced quite a lot of the fantasy artists whose work I enjoy most- I know he influenced my own work, but I'm not so sure it's very obvious.

There is a feel of serene elegance to this, giving the troll a regal beauty, and reminding us that "beauty" comes in all shapes and sizes.

Thanks for the links.

If you are indeed as peaceful as this troll looks to be, then you are blessed.
Where have you been anyway ? I miss your stories of weird spots on the wall and lessons in socially-suicidal spastic dance.

Sort of self portrait? No wonder its a good-looking troll!
And I was going to say that even before you mentioned self portrait!
Prettiest troll I've ever seen.

Oh yea, there is definitely the calm of Bauer's trolls in there. There's such an elegant heaviness to this even though everything is so delicate!
