In the spirit of fantasy and game art (and challenging myself!) I wrote up a grab-bag list of world cultures, technology periods, and other options and broke out the 6, 10 and 20 sided dice.
I know I have certain cultures and periods I lean toward, so I hope this will give me a fairly random selection of traits to work from. I rolled 10 different troll options so I could see a variety. (because I still like options)
I’m doing this D&D style kids... Get ready for the Troll Roll.
After 10 Troll-Rolls, I’m between Columbian, Dark Ages, Small Village troll with Average intelligence and a Mexican/Mayan/Inca/Aztec flavored tribes during the colonial era with very high intelligence.
I really like the idea (and texture set!) of a South American-ish Jungle Troll, and its an area that I haven’t researched much since 5th grade history class, so I think it’ll be a good stepping stone. I remember really loving learning about the early Mexican cultures so my instincts are leaning in that direction.
For this project I want to push myself with the drawing, to make it as solid and believable as possible, and texture, which I still struggle with.
I'll post my numbered lists in the comments if any of you would like to use it too. I thought it was a fun way to push myself out of my usual box!
