|The guy in the lower right hand corner kind of resembles Jack Sparrow, just like one of the Pirate Girl Sidekicks I drew. I have no clue why.|
So. These are a little out of the ordinary, no? Just a sneak peak of the ugly trolls I've been drawing. I've also kinda sorta been thinking of a story to go with them. The most that I can tell you about the story, really, is that it involves characters...and a plot. Details forthcoming.
I started drawing ugly trolls 1) because Cait requested that I draw something hideous and 2) because I was kind of in a rut. I'd been drawing girls, princess girls, pirate girls, Jane Austen girls, girls named Door from Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere--did I say girls already? Really, the only things I'd been drawing other than girls were Sherlock Holmes and Roger-from-101-Dalmatians-esque guys with trench coats, big noses, and a toothpick physique. Not much variety. So whenever I get around to scanning my drawings, you'll get to see plenty of non-girls. Yay.
