Troll WIP-Britt

I decided to go with a South American jungle troll. I did research into many different tribes in South America but ultimately decided to fashion my trolls from the Jungle itself.

They're large, lumbering, peaceful creatures, sort of gentle giants of the jungle. (say that five times fast!) While I figure he doesn't have any natural predators, this rough-skinned troll prefers to stay concealed in the jungle's foliage, where it is safe from frightened or curious humans. Saplings are bent and shaped to form headdresses that blend their heads into the lower canopy; simple clothing is created from woven leaves.

The clothing decisions weren't quite locked down in my original sketches but his hulking body and wide base were refined from my silhouettes

I know everyone's summers are busy, but I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

  1. This is a great start Brit! Make sure you get some good reference and studies for his stance so you can make sure he looks balanced and his feet are really carrying his weight.
