Wonderful sketches! I noticed some annotations on the portrait of the troll, CDPP+CE\6 and CDPP-C. Are those notes about the pencils you were using or just something to confound future art historians?
Really cool stuff!Jeff
Love it! I noted to Cory over on twitter that I like the fact that your trolls have a much more sinister intent and look about them, unlike Jackson's which walk about like undead belugas with legs. And ditto to DavidM's comment.
Your style reminds me of Paul Bonner's work so much, yet it is different and unique. The 2 of you are among my top storytellers and fantasy illustrators. Looking foreward to the next steps in the proces. Btw i tried your pencil to ink to watercolour technique...it's not nearly as simple as it looks, haha :D
Waiting to see all your steps to finish forest troll...very inspiring!!
I adore your blog! Please keep up the wonderfully inspirational sketches!
