Conceptual Work #3: The Bridge Troll

The troll has to be a very dimensional creature. He is part of the lore of this land. And this particular troll has been set for reasons unknown to us, to gaurd this particular bridge. He is the gatekeeper to from one part of this world to another.
But set there how? and by whom? And just how old is he? Did he build the bridge himself and if so it is enchanted?
As I did him I began to think that all these things might be true, but also that he had begun to make the best of his odd situation. Maybe he was placed here as a curse long ago when he lost a contest to a brave and daring, wise king. And he must now live forever under this bridge. Or maybe he took up residence here when he found that he could exact a horrible toll from all who needed to cross. Now he wayalys any and all travellers on the king's highway.
And maybe he has found that he has a decided liking for Lamb.

The sheep have eaten all the good grass on the one side bridge and seeing the beautiful lush grass on the other cant help but try and cross over. The troll has the brightness to realize that this is good for him. He can pick them off one by one as they cross and having himself a merry feast every night.

Little Goat gruff

BEHOLD, THIS, is the new process. I have slaved and searched for years and years. Gone to the ends of the earth wearing not but a pair of sandals. Searched the darkest corners of the soul. And have arrived here. In a vision it was given to me. Del Thompson appeared in smoke and light and with a role of secret drafting paper in one hand and a trumpet in the other. He handed me the paper, and said, "Use this, and prosper mightily." Then he raised the horn and blew it with all the fury of a winter storm, right in my ear. And then I awoke to my cell phone ringing an awful fanfare ring I had not set it to. But I had it. I had the simple three step process to re-align the solar system. To set the stars, once and for all, to rights.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Abandoned Bananas

I have given up on trying to figure out why I cant upload images to my the blog at www.justingerard.com and have followed Cory into the greener pastures of blogspot. There doesnt seem to be gnashing of teeth or cries of woe here by comparison to wordpress. He and I have started development work for Portland Studios on the old classic story of the three billy goats gruff. Right now we are in Pre-production just working on development for the characters. Keep checking in here and on Cory's blog. I promise there will be furious updating as the project gets more underway.
