Starting a new book project all about Arctic myths - giants and troll and ogres - I just love the Inuit mythology - it's a little on the brutal side but full of fun and interesting things to draw. This one, like the last couple will be for Inhabit Media. They're based up north - way up north - well past the tree line where it's already winter.
Anyway - this is the opening sketch work - we have some designs to nail down - a man eating ogre and a couple of giants. There's also a troll who eats children but since I've drawn her before the design isn't an issue at this point. They've also got these great aquatic demons that crawl out of the ice flows and grab kids and drag them under the ice.
