This is some kind of big War Troll, he has makeshift armor made up of shields on his arm there for scale. I've got some ideas about the adaptive nature of Trolls to their environment, this Troll, having spent a considerable amount of time on the battle field no doubt under the command of some sorts of Black Wizards has become more human & sophisticated compared to his forest dwelling brethren. Click on these images by the way, to see larger versions & relish in the detail! Relish!
I just initiated an Artist Coven called the "Black Wizards" featuring artist types who come from the Punk/Heavy Metal scene & have a similar style & nasty attitude. The goal is to promote this particular type of art & the artists & have some group shows & allow us to kick down the door of history & carve our names in the marble.
This wouldn't have been possible without the inspiration from John Blanche who showed me that you could be a big, burly, nasty, heavy metal listening, motorcycle riding, beer drinking lout & still be a fantastic & respected artist. Thanks John!
