The Child Stealing Ogress

This is the first of eight Arctic Trolls I will be rendering in colour for the Arctic Myths project I'm currently working on. She is a nasty child stealer whom we have decided should have longs arms and short legs in an effort to make her appearance unique and also give her a cool silhouette. She has the usual Inuit tattoos on her arms and face and wears tokens of power around her neck. The problem I am going to have here is to make each of these eight characters different. One of the best ways I can think of is to start with the body shape as we've done here.

"Wow" Larry, she's a lovely Ogress, in her own way. I am sure you will come up with new shapes and looks for your other ones. Good luck, and love what you are doing. xxx

Thanks Tiny Pearl. We are indeed looking for ways to make all these mythic beings unique.

Larry MacDougall said...

Thanks Charlene and Pablo. The children will definitely do what they are told if they think this creature is close by.

Hi Larry, love the Ogre, the colours are excellent, as usual. How long did this take you to do? My guess would be about 3-4 hours?

Hi Jay

It actually took a bit longer than that because I got bogged down with a lot of finicky opaque rendering on her face. That wasn't the plan, it just sort of went that way.

Jay Penn said...

It shows, that face has a very nice depth to it. It's funny how some areas need just the slightest dab of paint, where others can bog you down for ages. I can't talk though, this piece took me upward of 40 hours to do! http://theartofjaypenn.blogspot.com/2010/05/labyrinth.html
